Register the new Kindle to the same Amazon account your old one is on and you can download any content you own on the account to the new device. Content is owned by the ACCOUNT, not the device... so you don't transfer the books directly, but yes, you can get your old books on the new Kindle.

Register the Fire to your existing account and the books will populate the carousel and be listed under the cloud tab for download to your device.

Make sure the new Kindle Fire is registered to the same Amazon account as your original Kindle. All your books will be available for downloading to the Fire. The books belong to the account. You can have multiple Kindles register to one account and they call all access the books.
