You cannot transfer books directly from one Kindle to another Kindle.

Once you have registered your Kindle on your account (the same account that you've used with the first Kindle), you have several options.

For any books that you've bought from Amazon, you can go to Your Account -> Manage Your Kindle and from there, choose the books and then from the little Actions menu, select Deliver to my... and pick the name of your new Kindle. (The new Kindle must have an active network connection, WiFi or 3G, to send the books like that. If you don't have easy access to wireless network, choose Download and Transfer via USB and then pick the name of the new Kindle you wish to transfer the books to; then connect the Kindle to your computer and transfer the newly downloaded files.)

You can also download the books on the new Kindle itself. Depending on which model you have, it may be called the Cloud - in which case connect your Kindle to a WiFi network, open the Cloud on the Kindle and from there, download any books you want to have on the Kindle itself.

If you had any books you did not buy from Amazon, locate them on your computer (or if needed, download again from the shop/site where you got them) and transfer to the Kindle from your computer (either via USB cable or via e-mail or via the free Send to Kindle app that you can download from Amazon).

This question is usually asked at least twice a day at the Kindle Forum. This is the Kindle BOOK Forum. The Kindle Book Forum exists to post spam about a book entitled "The Devil's Necktie" by John Lansing. Questions about the device and how it operates usually go to the Kindle Forum. Oh, and it's traditional on the Kindle Forum that you never tell anyone which Kindle you might be inquiring about.

As long as it is on the SAME account, you have access to all of the books you bought. I have 7 kindles on my account (I have 3, my kids have 2, my husband has 1 and my Dad has another). There is a finite amount of licensure share on each book you bought. If you only have two kindles, and they are on the same account, then the books should be available for both.

I have one kindle for work, one for home, and a Fire for streaming vids. With all of my kindles in my family, I have never had any problems.

Louis, it's not necessary. All the contents you've purchased from Amazon are accessible to any Kindle you buy, the same way you accessed it originally.
