Looks like people who want e-books from Penguin will have to buy them online, download them to a computer and then transfer them to their e-reader via USB.
For those that don't remember, Amazon's Kindle Library is just what its name implies: a service for free download of book.
Sure, users have to agree that they can only have one book out at the time, but with an unlimited period of being allowed to hold it, that is not so bad.
Unfortunately, in a move reminiscent of the November, 2011 ban
, bookstore Penguin has decided
to permanently cease offering its books for loan over Amazon's Kindle library.
The reason Penguin gave was that the form of distribution breached its agreement with OverDrive.
The books that are already part of libraries will continue being loaned, but that is it. Future titles will not become available through those same channels.
