Is it possible to have 2 seperate Kindles on one Amazon account? How would I do it?

Sure, you can do that. You just have to register them both to the same account. There is no limit to the number of devices or apps you can have registered to 1 account.

How would I download a book on one Kindle and not the other?

Yes, of course. Some have a dozen or more Kindles registered to one account, and all can share the content in the account. Just register each Kindle to the Amazon account that you want them to use. If your order Kindles from your account, they will arrive pre-registered.

Setup and registration instructions are here -

The only time a book is automatically downloaded to a specific Kindle is when you buy that book from that Kindle. When you do that, it will show up in the Archives of the other Kindles on the account, but it won't download to any others until you tell Amazon to send it to another one. The Archive on a Kindle is just the list of books on the account that are not currently present on that device.

Only one Kindle can be the default, the one whose name comes first alphabetically. Other Kindles will have access to content from their respective archives and from the account's Manage Your Kindle page.

When you buy a book online, you specify which Kindle it will be delivered to. If you buy a book directly from a Kindle, it will download to that Kindle.

In either case, the book will also be added to your account, and will appear in the Archive/Cloud list on any other Kindles that are registered to the account. Books can be downloaded directly from the Archive/Cloud list on a Kindle, or they can be sent to any Kindle from your "Manage Your Kindle" page online (Your Account -> Manage Your Kindle, or ).
