eBookFling is like Netflix for Books

Library Books

There’s a new site out from BookSwim called eBookFling and according to eBookNewser, they are calling it “the Netflix for Books.”

The site lets readers “swap” eBooks virtually using the Kindle and Nook lending features and is completely free. It only takes a second to sign up and once that’s done, the site will then ask you to list eBooks in your library that you would like to share, pointing out that “sharing is caring.” You can share from either Kindle or Nook and then you’ll be able to browse titles to borrow from other users.

Users will earn 1 credit for every 5 books that they list as well as for every title they end up lending out. As a borrower, you will pay a credit for each loan and you can create a queue of books you’d like to borrow.

Lenders will be e-mailed or sent a text message when a borrower picks a title they are offering and they can then accept the loan through Amazon or Barnes & Noble. eBookFling will verify the transaction and let the borrower know that their book is ready for download. They will then charge the borrower and credits the lender. After that, the borrower has two weeks to read the content before it is automatically returned to the owner.

After all that, it might sound a little complicated but it’s really not and with just a few clicks you can borrow and lend books pretty easily.

    We’re creating a similar website, Booklends, that will make it easy for Kindle and Nook users to find and share books with each other. Visit http://www.booklends.com to sign up for our mailing list, and we’ll let you know when our site is finished (probably within a week or so)
