At a quick glance at the FAQ, it appears they just hook up lenders and lendees (?), after which, in the Kindle's case, the lender would go through the Amazon site to use the Kindle book-lending process. This would presumably mean that the lender is provided with your email address, so take that into consideration as to whether you want to give that out (and of course the site itself will have it, too).
Looks the same as other lending sites like http://lendle.me/ or http://www.booklending.com/ - as far as I know, they are all legit but remember most titles from major publishers aren't available for lending. LendInk appears not to tell you when a book is not lendable (at least not at first glance) so you could be waiting forever for a book simply not available. Lendle seems to be the same way. I prefer the look of BookLending because when you search for a title it will tell you right away in the search results "this book is not lendable". So personally I would go with www.booklending.com because they are upfront about which books are lendable and which aren't.
