Shutting down Kindle book lending library

Well, never mind. I just found out that when the Amazon.com FAQ says that a lending-enabled Kindle book can be lent once, that means once in the entire lifetime of the book. I had interpreted the statement to mean that it could be lent only to one person at a time, so that one would be purchasing the digital equivalent of a normal book, which can be passed around from one person to another. Fortunately, I have purchased only three Kindle books; never again, until the lending feature changes to something worthwhile. Caveat emptor.
