Amazon Dramatically Expands Prime Lending Library

Yesterday we got into some of the pros and cons of Amazon's Prime program. One of the things I noted was an unfortunately shallow selection of books in their lending library, but I never could've guessed they'd take such a quick step to including new books as they did today. It just goes to show, if you have a problem with something Amazon is doing, sometimes all you have to do is sleep on it.

As of today, Amazon is allowing publishers and authors who utilize its Kindle Digital Publishing program to include their titles in the Kindle Owners Lending Library. If you're a Prime member, and you're not sure how to borrow the free books on your device, click here and scroll down for instructions.

We'll give you a hand and help you navigate these newly available titles by genre, while showing off some highly rated ones.

Genre: Horror

Title: Dismember
Description: The summer he turned seven, Dave Abbott survived a gruesome mountainside car accident that left the rest of his family mangled and dead.

Now, after living twenty-three years with the twisted backwoodsman who pulled him from the wreckage, Dave is carrying out a plan to replace each of his lost loved ones with members of nearby, unsuspecting families. He has prepared, he’s stalked, and now his chance has come to get his family safely out of the mountains once and for all. 

Whether they like it or not.

Title: The Hidden Heiress

Description: To escape a killer, Isabel Darton is forced to flee the only home she's ever known and adopt the identity of a governess.
