That's great that you point this out. Another reason to stick with public domain and creative commons licensed works, unless you work out a library license with Amazon. Thanks for pointing that out. "Personal use" doesn't sound like library use to me.

I thought that checking out the Kindle violated its terms of service:

Use of Digital Content. Upon your payment of the applicable fees set by Amazon, Amazon grants you the non-exclusive right to keep a permanent copy of the applicable Digital Content and to view, use, and display such Digital Content an unlimited number of times, solely on the Device or as authorized by Amazon as part of the Service and solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Digital Content will be deemed licensed to you by Amazon under this Agreement unless otherwise expressly provided by Amazon.

How would you interpret the Terms of Service?
