The Seattle-based tech firm and online retail powerhouse's Kindle Owners' cheap nhl jerseysLending Library allows Amazon Prime members to borrow one book a month from a specific selection that Amazon said includes "over 100 current and former New York Times Bestsellers." Amazon said the Lending Library has more than 5,000 titles to choose from.

Of course, in order to read the borrowed Kindle books, an Amazon Prime miami heat jerseys subscriber has to own a Kindle e-reader or have a device with a Kindle app to read the books on -- such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
