I've not tried it.

One of the _/*big*/_ drawbacks to the Kindle is that you can't trade a 
book, sell a book or give away a book -- all things you can readily and 
easily do with a printed book.

You can loan a Kindle book, but that only applies to books the publisher 
has specifically enabled for lending, and then there are lots of 
restrictions: the loan is for a 14-day period only, you must wait 7 days 
after loaning before you can loan it again, you must in in the United 
States to loan, etc.
