No name suggestion, but let me cut and paste a post I made in Rule Breakers regarding the Kindle Books I have available for loaning. I have been reading via the Kindle ap (iPad with a reader) for a couple years now, and while most books aren't 'loanable', a few are.


I have the following available for E-loan.

I can see if an E-book is loanable by logging in to Amazon, going to the pulldown menu under 'My Account' and selecting 'Manage Your Kindle'. It will show all the Kindle books I own. On the right of each book under 'Actions' is

-Read Now
-Deliver to my ...
-Delete from Library
And in just some instances
-Loan this Title

I have available for loan:

"Companion Diagnostics: The Future of Medicine" by Tracy Staton.
This book is sponsored (the final chapter, or was it the Appendix, is an add for services by Myraqa), and I think a bit of an experiment by news aggregator Fierce. It is short, but contains a nice history of the co-development of therapeutics and diagnostic tests that direct their use, as well as recent concerted co-approvals and trends in this direction.

-How To Invest if You Can't Afford to Lose (2011) by Gleason, Tom
Not a bad read. The author's newsletter is a bit over the top, but the book is very common-sense oriented.

-The Age of Deleveraging: Investment Strategies for a Decade of Slow Growth and Deflation by Shilling, A. Gary
Worth a read. Believes that deflation will be our future (and has for some time). In the first half of the book the author tells you how brilliant he is and how right he has been in the past (by so far not too much with deflation), but the second half is worthwhile. Anthony Boeckh, The Great Reflation was better in this area, but I only have that in actual book form.

-The Little Book of Sideways Markets: How to Make Money in Markets that Go Nowhere by Katsenelson, Vitaliy N.
His first book covered more, but this was a good quick read.

-Pharmaplasia by Wokasch, Michael
I enjoyed this under the radar offering. Nice history of pharmaceutical development, what has gone wrong over the last couple of decades, and some reasonable suggestions for the path forward.

-Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading by Elder, Alexander
Advice for traders including some basic technical analysis. Good money management advice and other suggestions, even for those who are more investors than traders. Worth a read.
I have the follow-on books loanable as well.
Though I did not fully read or use them. I am more investor than trader oriented.

Hmmm .. of the over 30 books I have, those are the only 'E-loanable' ones.

I also have loanable
-Clayton Christensen and Henry Eyring 'The Innovative University: Changing the DNA of Higher Education from the Inside Out'
But I'm not done with it yet. So far it is not so great, but I'm not into the meat yet. I really like Christensen but have found his offerings in the education space to be his weakest books. I have 'Disrupting Class' but it is not E-loanable, and his others I don't have electronicly. If you want this one, let me know, I should be done in a couple of weeks (I put another book ahead of finishing it).

Again, if you want one, let me know by reply to this thread and by Email. I'll need the Email to loan the book, and the thread will be the easiest way to keep a queue. should a few be interested in the same book.

If you have Kindle books that are loanable, and you would like to recommend / loan them please offer them via a new board post/thread.


There was little interest in my loanable books over in RB (you'd think they would all be Kindled up). Let's see if there is here. If you have any E-books available for loan (check amazon as above), then start a thread and offer them up as well.
