I purchased a Kindle at a local store. I want to register it with my current account so that we share books. Can someone tell me how to do this

Register the new Kindle to the existing account.

You can do it from the menu system on the Kindle. Turn it on and then press the Menu button. Look in the menus for the Registration option. It would help us if you told us which model Kindle you bought.

You can use your kindle (menue/settings/regester) and it will put it on for you or you can do it on line. I just got my 2nd one and it was really easy. (Kindle fire)

Just got my fire from amazon. Amazon put most of my books from my other kindle on the Fire. I have 2 audible books and several book samples that did not get put on the new kindle, how can I move them onto the Fire?

@Donna: You'll have to get the samples from the book's product page on the website again. They are not archived on your account.

The audible books are downloaded from the audible app. Open the app and sign in and then sync your account. Then you can download your books.

I have registered my 2nd kindle, but both devices are not showing up on my amazon account and I am unable to share apps. What should I do?

The first thing is that you shouldn't have posted your problem in this old thread.

The second thing is that you've registered the second kindle to a different account. You may have used the wrong email, and accidentally created a second account. You need to re-register your kindle to the old account.

@kristie: Turn it on after charging it for an hour or two. Which model is it?

To register it to your account, connect it to your wifi network and then use the menu item on the Kindle to register it to your account.
