BookSwim Launches eBookFling

BookSwim has launched eBookFling.com. The new site allows users to swap digital titles, capitalizing on the eBook lending feature available on Kindles and Nooks.

Those without the Kindle or Nook devices can still utilize this service by downloading the app versions of these eReaders on their smartphones, computers, or iPads. A complete list of the rules can be found here.

While there are no membership fees, the site functions on a credit-based system. Here’s more from the release: “Lenders earn 1 credit for every 5 books they list as available for lend and 1 credit earned for each successfully lent book.” Users can also purchase credits for $1.99 each.
