"We’re thrilled that Amazon is offering such a new approach to library ebook..." said one Seattle's librarian, and one Kindle blog listed out the top advantages. (You can even read them if you don’t own a Kindle using one of Amazon's free apps, and they'll also be available in Amazon's browser-based Cloud Reader for Safari and Chrome.) Link to Original Source
