Stop another kindle seeing my content

Hi - I bought a Kindle for my son - and registered it to my account - but he can see all of my books on his Kindle, which are not for kids. Is there any way of separating what he can see, so that he only sees the books I purchase for him - and not my books?

Thanks for any help,

What sort of a kindle is it? It's hard to give you much idea about what is and isn't possible without knowing that.

Sorry, Kindle Fire HD - just bought this month. I can remove them from the carousel, but if he clicks on Cloud - they are there again. I don't want him seeing 50 shades for example!!

Thank you.

I'm not sure how the fire works but the newer e-ink models have parental controls so you can block the archives, internet, and purchasing activities. If it's an older model you may have to do the register/add books/deregister dance to keep him out of your archives.

Like CBP says, give us the model number and someone can give you an idea -- plus look at this thread:
