Register the new one to the same Amazon account as the old one. Do a sync. The titles will show up on the new one, ready to download.

Thank you.....sorry to show my "computer skills" but will there be a "sync" link on the new kindle to allow this action?

Sync and check for items will be a choice on the menu. You bring up the menu on the Home page, and it will be an option there. You will need to be sure your wireless connection is turned on.

Same as it was on your old Kindle. Menu > Sync and Check for Items.

I currently have a Nook tablet, but am changing to a reader and can't decide between the Nook glowlight and the kindle paperwhite. Can all of the books from my Nook tablet transfer to the paperwhite?

The Nook has different formatting and are not readable on the Paperwhite. You could purchase a Kindle Fire and then add the Nook app to read your Nook books.

No. You need to run a Nook app to read B&N books and the Paperwhite is a dedicated ereader. It doesn't run apps. You would need a Fire which could have the Nook for android side loaded to it.

i am trying to decide weather to get a New Kindle HD or get the Kindle HDX, what is the difference? What would be the advantage of the HDX over the HD?

@Randy - In a nutshell, the HDX has a front-facing camera and mic for use with Skype, a faster processor, and a higher-resolution screen. It's also available with more storage space. There's a comparison chart on the product pages.

Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers

technically, you are not transferring the books. The Amazon Cloud stores all the books. When you add a device to your Amazon Kindle devices, that device can access all the same books as the original device. We have 9 kindle/kindle fires, several iphones, several android phones all on the Amazon same account. I buy a book and 5 devices can read that copy at one time.
