Is it possible to give a Kindle e-book you own to someone else? Can one transfer ownership when one is done with a book?

No, you bought a non-transferable license and agreed to those terms of service when you bought the book.

No, you cannot sell, give away, or otherwise transfer a Kindle book.

If the book is lending-enabled, you could lend it to someone (once, for 14 days). See http://amazon.com/kindle-lending.

You can have multiple Kindles registered to your account, and all can access your books. Many families, or even groups of close friends, will share books by sharing an account.

Some people have "spare" Kindles (usually the $69 ones) that they loan out to friends who want to read books on their account.

Hi Noel. At this time, it is not possible to transfer the license of an ebook to another person. However, many people can share an account and have access to all of the books bought on that account. That works best with families because you also end up sharing the financial ownership of the account, but it can be done between friends, also.
