Amazon launches Kindle rentals for US readers, bases prices on duration

Normally, to read an e-book on the Kindle e-reader, you have to go to Amazon and buy the book, then download it. Now another option will be available.

kindle-rental2The Seattle retail giant Amazon seems to be testing out a new rental service for regular books, with pricing based on loan period. There are options to rent for 30, 60, 90, or 120 days. Rental prices start at $3.22 for 30 days and slowly increase by pennies for every day thereafter until you reach the full retail price of $9.99.

This new rental option certainly seems appealing, unless you’re the type who slowly makes your way through a text over the course of a year. The feature appears to be open only to US-based Kindle owners.
