It's the Swindle edition only.

Yeah, it says it's the Kindle version in the title. Anyone interested in the Kindle version knows what that entails. Could you go troll a Windows 8 board instead?

Thanks!

I was surprised at how many books cant be lent. Through the programs for lending. Example Nicholas sparks books. I wanted to read the time travelers wife and water for elephants. They all lead you to a spot to askt the writer to allow lending.

If you have prime membership, you can "borrow" water for elephants for free. I did this yesterday

Thanks!

I was disappointed that I could only loan a book once, for two weeks. Then I couldn't loan it to someone else later. Either way, $4 seems a good price for a recent S. King novel. Thanks OP.

I really enjoyed this book.
