Users of Amazon’s Kindle e-reader will soon be able to borrow electronic books from libraries in the US. The retailer is teaming up with Overdrive, which already offers an e-book lending service through 11,000 American libraries. Until now Kindle owners have been unable to download titles because the device uses a unique file format. Overdrive also operates in the UK, however Amazon would not confirm if its plans include Britain.
