Hi - Does anyone have experience with lending Kindles? We have worked with B&N on lending Nooks and they provide account management services - meaning that they download new titles for us remotely which is a big help logistically.  Our stumbling block with Kindle lending is in finding a fairly simple way to download titles to 20 or more Kindles - separate accounts for each device would be a nightmare to download and pay for in a secure way, assuming that staff would need access to account info. Any info welcome here...
