So far nobody has reported a known limit. I have 8, but there are people with many many more.

I have 13.

There is a limit to the number of devices you can have a book on simultaneously (usually 6 unless stated othewise) but no limit on the number of devices you can have on an account.

We are new to Kindle. We have two Kindle Paperwhites registered. I tried to download new purchases on both devices and got a message that I had exceeded my number of devices. I have searched Amazon for help and am frustrated not finding any. Do you have any advice?

Are they textbooks? Are these e-books on other devices such as tablets?

Some e-books can only be on a limited number of devices at one time. Often that limit is six but some have no limit and others such as textbooks may be limited to only one or two.

Just FWIW...
I've run across several books that limit downloads for less than six devices - this one limits it to four...

@K. Rowley: I'm not sure what FWIW means, but that is an hilarious example of irony. Thanks for posting it :-)

There is a good chance that the publisher decided to lower the usual limit for the number of devices that a book can be downloaded on simultaneously. Usually it's six or more but it may be lower for that book.

Wow, I am just now finding these replies! Thank you all very much. I was eventually able to download or upload all the books to the two paperwhites but still, I only have one I-pad registered, my office computer where I make my purchases generally, and the two paperwhites, so it was rather frustrating. I think it's all working now just fine. Again, many thanks!

Make sure you contact customer service if you get stuck. They have always been wonderful for me.

I got the same error when trying to register on my macbook, but all my other devices from apple, i.e.: iPhone 6/ipad mini2/ipad 2/ all register fine?

You're responding to a post from 2012. Chances are the OP isn't reading this thread any longer. Even the post directly before yours is over a year old.
