Hair follicles?

I'm guessing it's the part that makes Amazon give money to support "those" kind of people.

Well I think we all know the answer: A little part of Jeff Bezos dies.

Compromise: Read them, then delete them.

I was just messing with you, man. As others have stated, the books don't belong to you and you have no legal right to them. I'm not sure what would happen if you just left them on there and registered the device to your account, to be honest.

Just because you bought it through the Amazon marketplace does not mean that Amazon approved the books being left on there.
The books will stay until you delete them. Should they? that's a different question.

I appreciate the appreciation of my name, thank you. On a more serious note this was just a question so that I would know what to expect when I actually get to register the Kindle. The books are there and the owner clearly stated they are there and since I bought it on Amazon's web site I was curious how Amazon would treat the books in question. By the way I have no idea what the book titles are and may indeed delete them in the future.

And dudes named Orval.

Ah, I had forgotten about the legal precedent of finders keepers.

No, but he has a "finders keepers" right. Besides, the dude's name is Orval. You know he's a cool cat with a name like Orval.

FYI, unless those books are public domain, you don't have a legal right to them.

I purchased a kindle reader 3G with 100 books on it do I lose those books when I make the kindle mine even though I bought it used through Amazon?
