Amazon and OverDrive Announce Kindle Library Lending Program

It's not a hoax, and you're not suffering from Koha-induced delirium (well, maybe you are, but this news is real). Today Amazon and OverDrive announced the Kindle Library Lending program, which will enable Kindle customers to borrow and enjoy eBooks from library OverDrive collections in the United States. The program is scheduled for launch later this year.

Some details are available from the OverDrive Digital Library Blog, and library bloggers are already weighing in with praise, skepticism, and worries ("Librarian by Day" Bobbie Newman has helpfully begun compiling a list for further reading).
