    Palm Digital Media is going to add to its
    software the ability to give just one device permission to read an eBook for a limited amount of time. This will allow libraries to loan eBooks to patrons.

    Awesome! I will still probably buy the e-books like I do now, but it's always great to have other options.

    I guess it all depends on how many libraries will subscribe to this, how much it will cost the libraries, and how it gets implemented.

    I'd be interested, that's for sure!
