Sharing Books On Multiple Kindles

My wife has taken a sudden interest in my Kindle, after buying Jan Karon’s latest book “Home to Holly Springs” last night. She began reading it right away, and that experience in itself sold her on the value of the Kindle. She was reading in to the night, and told me this morning that she likes it. Yes!!

So, anticipating a potential gift for Christmas, I emailed Amazon about the ability to share books among multiple Kindles. According to this email I received from their support department, Amazon allows you to share books on up to 6 different Kindles registered to the Amazon.com account from which the purchase was made. Very cool!  My wife and I ( and potentially my four kids, if I suddenly came in to some money ) can read the same book at the same time, and only pay one price.

The licenses associated with books and other non-subscription content purchased from the Kindle Store allow you to download and view(at the same time) each item from up to 6 different Kindles registered to the Amazon.com account from which the original purchase was made.

Subscription items can only be downloaded to one Kindle.

If you register a new Kindle to your Amazon.com account, you’ll be able to use the Content Manager or Your Media Library on Amazon.com to download content you’ve purchased from that account. You will not be able to view content on a Kindle that is not registered to the Amazon.com account from which the original purchase was made. You cannot share books you purchase with other Kindles that are not associated with your account.
