Two Amazon accounts need to be set up: one for you, and one for your granddaughter. She will register her Kindle to her account, and you will register your Kindle to your account.

From what you say, it sounds like you should give the existing account to your granddaughter (let her change the e-mail address, password, credit card no., billing address, etc.), and create a new account for yourself.

Bonnie, I don't have Kindle Fires but I do have 2 Kindle ereaders, one for me and one for my daughter. We are on the same account, but I set the account to "not sync" between our two Kindles. I choose to download her books to her Kindle, and mine to my Kindle, and they stay separate that way. If your granddaughter is young and you want to keep paying for her Fire books and apps, you can do it that way, I think. If you want her to pay for her own, etc...than as the previous posters have said you can have two separate accounts.

Hope this helps,

Can I have two ereaders, register each separately (one for hubby and one for me) but use the same account info for billing/purchasing?

Each is already going to be registered separately and recognized as a different device. If you want to use the same billing and purchasing information for both, they'll be registered to the same account. Registering to different accounts would mean that you can't share content but registering to the same account does not mean that the content on both has to be the same. It just means it's available to both.

No, in order to share the books on an account, both Kindles need to be registered to the same account. You don't have to download all the books to each Kindle, but you will each have access to the entire archive of the account.

Thank you, this is very helpful. My kindle has the keyboard, Hubby's (which should arrive any time for his birthday) will be the $79 smaller one. How does he find books without a keyboard to search with?

One of the 4 small buttons on the bottom brings up a virtual keyboard. He will use the square 5-way button in the middle to navigate it. It's easy with a bit of practice.
