I have a Kindle touch, and my 12-year-old daughter has an iPod touch with the Kindle app on it, which is registered to my Kindle. This is okay in some respects, because I search for and buy books that I think she'll enjoy and will be appropriate for her. I buy them using my Kindle and read them, both for enjoyment and to screen them for her. The ones that are appropriate for her, I put into a collection with her name on it.

From her iPod Kindle app, she can see the titles of all my books and download anything. I don't read horribly inappropriate books, but some of the books in my library are for grownups. I trust that she won't download and read grownup books from my library, but would like to simplify things by giving her access to just the one collection I've taken the time to make, instead of my whole library. Anyone know if that's possible?

No it isn't.

If you get her a $79 Kindle, you can block her access to your books, but not with the iPod Touch.

At 12, she's probably "grown-up" enough to read anything she finds interesting.

I totally agree with that.
