I’m a big fan of sharing stuff if there is an opportunity to do so. But that’s not really possible when it comes to kindle books, is it. First of all they use DRM-locked software making your kindle books effectively locked into your kindle forever. Secondly you can’t lend them to anyone (I know that you can lend kindle books in the US, but not anywhere else in the world). For these two reason there were quite some hesitation on my part before starting to use the kindle app.
More often than not, you get more out of sharing than you put in when you decide to share and who wouldn’t want to get more in return than you put in? Besides the joy of sharing is beyond anything that you keep by yourself.
So how do you share your kindle books?

Fill in this form here and I will contact you and give you the account details once you have gifted me a kindle book.
You’re probably curious what I currently read. The recent books I’ve read, which I also own as kindle books are: Inside Wikileaks, Nudge and Poke the box. The kind of books that usually poke my interest is books about humans (and how they work) and sustainability. I also read a lot of fantasy before, but not so much anymore. So if you read things similar or dissimilar, don’t hesitate to volunteer your interest!
