    I'm basing my answer on reading the program information...

    The lending program is not meant to be a direct earner. In other words, the answer to your second question is "nothing."

    On the other hand, if you are an author/publisher with a series of books, putting a title or two in the lending program can help you build a following. A percentage of the people who take the free loan will like your stuff enough to find and buy the other titles you offer. (Especially if you include a page in the book listing your books in the series...)

    Which would change the answer to your second question. For the right "one eBook loan" you could potentially make [# of books in series - 1] x [royalty per title].
