I have had an Amazon account for a long time now and I pay for all the services. My wife and I have entirely different tastes in literature and so I have a load of "Mills & Boon" stuff cluttering up my library. Is it possible to give her a separate Kindle account and transfer all of her stuff out of my library?
I can still arrange to cover the subscriptions - I just want to separate the content.
@KayPee: I think there may be an answer that meets your needs, but it is not as "straight forward" way as you have asked.
1 - As @Blue say - you will get the most beneficial impact by downloading the Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac app onto your computer and working with your libraries to build neat and convenient Collections so that you can - at your pace - easily put books into collections that work for you and your wife.
The suggestion offers:
- Ease of use by using a big keyboard and screen;
- Ease of use of sorting books by author, say and then moving large numbers of books into collections at one go.
- Now, due to cloud collection technology, the collections you create and manage on your account (or "cloud") can be transported/copied to any Kindle device or app you have in the future. It really is working smart doing the job just once!
That one solution and a little bit of effort by you and your wife will cure 99% of your current issues and cure a lot of issues in the future :)
Obviously think a bit about comfortable Collection Names that work for you.
HINT: Most times if you have already bought a book and it's on your account Amazon software will warn you if you try and buy it again. I strongly suggest creating a collection called something like "trash" and dump rubbish books into that collection. You never see them again and you should avoid buying a lot of books again.
I would strongly suggest you look at the new free feature FAMILY LIBRARY - here is a quick link to the Amazon help pages on the topic. Bottom line it allows 2 adult Amazon accounts to be linked and you to set the default to sharing ALL, SOME or NONE - overriding the sharing whenever you want.
