    Lend me question

      Hello everyone! I would just like to know how can i find out if the book that i want to purchase is lend me capable. What are the signs and where are they located both on the nook wifi and on the website.

          On the web site there's a big "LendMe" icon just below the "Buy Now" button. It looks like this:

           

          Here are the top LendMe e-books. Check a few out to see what I mean. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/category.asp?PID=32720

           

          On your NOOK there should be a similar LendMe icon on the "My B&N Library" page. However, this is not as reliable, because it's not updated when the publishers change their minds.

              Bear in mind, this will let you know if it part of LendMe right now. A publisher (to my knowledge) can remove their book from the service/program at any time. This means that a book you bought that was lendable can become non-lendable in the future without notice. As many found out when publishers did just that after Amazon introduced a similar program and they pulled the lendability from B&N as well.

               

              In a nutshell, the lendability is not a licensed right you are buying as part of the book purchase. So I would avoid judging purchase decisions based upon it.
