Transfer ebooks from an old Kindle to a new Kindle Fire
To transfer downloaded (not purchased) books:
Step 1: Connect your old Kindle to your computer via USB.
You will find your kindle device as a drive under "My Computer", Click it and open the drive.
Step 2: There should be multiple folders. Open the folders and drag selected files from the Kindle and drop them into the computer's hard drive, transfer ebooks and other documents from the old Kindle to your computer.
Step 3: Connect another Kindle to your computer via USB, then there will be a removable disk displaying in your computer, open it and transfer the documents those files copied from your old Kindle to the new one. For audio books please put them in the Kindle's "Audible" directory, and for normal books please place them in the "Documents" directory.
To transfer purchased books:
All your purchased Kindle booksa are stored in your account's Kindle Cloud, all you need to do is de-register your Amazon account in the old Kindle then re-register it on the new one. Go to the reading app, all the books you have ever purchased in Amazon Store will show up on your bookshelf.
Share books between two Kindle devices which registered with the same account
Note of Caution:
You are allowed to register your Amazon account on several Kindle devices, then your purchased books will not auto-sync to both of your Kindles, but only the later registered one, at the same time, those already downloaded books still remain in your old Kindle.
For you newly purchased Amazon books, you can still control which device to sync the item to in the Manage Kindle page.
Step 1: Register the second Kindle with the same account registered to the first one. Maybe you purchased a Kindle Touch before then get a new Kindle Fire HD, or your friend or family have got another Kindle and you want to share your purchased book to him/her. Never mind, in one word, it is possible to register your account in another Kindle and won't do much harm on your previous Kindle. After successful registration, please go to Amazon official site then navigate to "Manage Your Kindle", and look at the left sidebar and click on "Manage Your Device". You will see your registration status like the image below:
Step 2: Go to "All Items" in the left sidebar, you will see all the stuff you have purchased. Choose a book, click the "Actions" on the right of the item name. Then you will see a list like the left part of the image, choose the second option "Deliver to my...", you will redirect to a new page like the right part of the image below, you can see all your registered Kindle devices and apps, which means, although you can't auto-sync your purchased books to your old Kindle device anymore, but you can also manually deliver them to any of your registered device.
Up by now, you have learnt how to transfer contents from a old Kindle device to a new one; and how to register on two Kindle device with the same account and transfer purchased contents to them.
But what if you are not convenient to share your account with anyone else but only some books? Yes you can lend them out, but you must sacrifice your own 15 reading days, that's not that satisfying.
Therefore you need a method to share and transfer your books among unlimited Kindle devices.
