I think you'll find the lending thingy very disappointing. Most of the big publishers do not permit it. You might consider registering your kindle to your sister's account or vice versa. That way you would each have access to all of the books on that account.

You mentioned registering a kindle to another account, can one kindle be registered to more than one account?

So, you temporarily register it to a friend's account. You download the books you want to read from that account, and then you register it back to your account?

Yes.

ETA: That will only work on e-ink Kindles. Fires are erased of content if de-registered.

Then, how do you Lend books from one kindle to another?

Only SOME titles are even lendable. Go to your MYK. Find the title and click Go To Product Page. Once there, it should have a banner saying. "You bought this book on this date". (I mention this so you know it's the version you own.)

If it's lendable, it will say right on that "own" banner "Loan this book." Click it, and follow the instructions.

You must use your friend's REAL email address, NOT the kindle email. She must accept the loan from a "real" email addy.

P.S. poetic license on the word "own", since we all know we don't really own them.

In this ephemeral universe do we ever really own anything? Or are we just temporary stewards of the things in our spacial and temporal locality? The paper book you own today was once a tree and before that soil, water, and carbon dioxide in the air. Carbon dioxide that was exhaled by animals and people from all of history. So as you sit there reading the words of Caesar. You may also be reading from the actual words of Caesar.

Dude. Waaay to early on a Sunday for that. Ring for more coffee.

Yeah, I don't have my "little words" filter working yet.

So, did y'all see what happened on The Voice/American Idol/So You Think Celebrities Can Dance/The Gong Show last night? Dude, that was epic!

(Better?)

Are those tv shows?

I do freely admit to going to see "The Hunger Games" on Friday. So I'm not totally against drivel. It was totally forgettable, which is a good thing.

I *have* had enough coffee to be able to think of several "small words" for you. Maybe you can guess what they are. >;0)
