I just got a new kindle fire and want to give my kindle keyboard to my kids but before I do that I need to remove all my books is there an easy way to do this or do I have to remove them one at a time. Thanks.

you can just deregister it from your account. that will delete everything from the kindle. (i think) that's how it worked on a fire that I bought for my parents that was registered to my account even though i said it was a gift

You can go into settings and reset the device to factory defaults. You will be required to re-register it to your account but that takes far less time than deleting a lot of books individually.

Just deregistering does not delete all the books on e-ink kindles.

This only works for the Fires. The e-ink have to be factory reset to wipe them.

Menu - Settings - Menu - Reset to factory defaults.

Thank you. Now all I have to do is reload the kids' books.

That would be fastest from Manage Your Kindle, here on Amazon. :0)
