Hi - has anyone been successful at lending books from one nook to another? I have tried with another nook user. Each of us can receive and download the book however when we tried to read it, the nook tells us our loan period has expired. The kicker is that we can read the same loaned book on our ereaders on our phone. I'm assuming we are doing something wrong but I'm not sure what the trick is.
Also - does anyone know - I have read that we can only lend any one book once. Is that true?
Thanks in advance!

Yup once, ever.
Not once per person, once ever.
Like, if you lend it to Susan you can't lend the same book to Jill after you got it back from Susan.
It sucks. The idea of it sounded great before you got to that fact.

Thanks for the reply. Have you been able to lend a book to another nook reader who was actually able to read the book on his/her nook? That is where we are struggling.

I have had the same problem lending. My best friend and I lent each other books about a week ago and the same day we sent them, it said the loan period has expired. And they still said they're loaned out on our nooks. Today, after some checking around, we were able to open the loaned books on the computer, with our name and CC#. But still not on the nook. Not sure what's going on with the LendMe feature. Maybe it's just not quite ready yet.

Hi, I did some more reading on the blogs here yesterday. It looks like everyone is having the same issue. I understood from one of the blogs that B&N is aware of the issue and is planning to fix it with the next software update. I guess the answer it to hold tight and try not to loan for now.

Yes that is what I read, that a book could only be loaned out once. From what I've read any ebook I've bought through B&N should be eligible for loaning, but the only books that have the LoanMe icon are the Free books. What's up with that? I purchased several books last night when I got the nook, and none of those are "loanable". So I guess i'm not understanding what the lending process amounts to at this point.
