Amazon has announced plans to make e-books rentable. Yup, just like library books. Although I'll always hold a special place in my heart for bound books and a shelf to display my well loved collection, e-readers take up less space and resources. They're also more affordable!

Purchasing e-books isn't always pricey, but if you can spend less and still read the latest releases, even better! This new service allows users to access all sorts of reading material, just like you use Netflix streaming. The books are available for a short period of time and then the content rotates.

Will you use Amazon's new service or stick to purchasing full books to read again later on? Share your thoughts below!
