Good Summary of the Current State of Business re: eBook Lending

Stu Woo, WSJ: "BookLending and Lendle opened in the past two months, while eBook Fling plans to start Monday. The sites' creators said they decided to launch the services after Amazon, following Barnes & Noble's lead, introduced the ability to lend Kindle e-books in late December. Analysts estimate that Kindle has about two-thirds of the U.S. market for e-books." BookLending and Lendle are just for Kindle users. The new eBook Fling provides service to both Kindle and Nook users.
