I'm used to lending books to my best friend and would like to know if there's anyway I can send books from my Kindle to hers in order she may read them without buying them? Many thanks

Yes: Connect the 2 Kindles to the same account.
OR: Hand over the Kindle with your books on it, while she hands you hers: and then swap back 2 weeks later.

There is no gifting or lending available in the UK at the present time.

The only way you can share books is to have both kindles registered to the same account. This is done to stop lending and make sure the authors get paid for the books. You are allowed to have as many kindles and kindle apps as you like registered to your account but a kindle can only be registered to one account.

Buy a cheap kindle, register it to your account and give that to your friend. Perfect solution.

Many thanks folks - much appreciated. Kindle swap for 2 weeks sounds like a great idea.... we had heard that there might be a way to send the books to someone else's kindle which would be active for a limited amount of time but it appears not.
