What a nice thing to do!

Just give it to her. You can change the name of the kindle to Sister's Kindle and leave it on your account if you want to share books.

I share my account with my sister and a daughter, they gift the books to me when they want one so we don't have to keep track of money and we can all read the same book at the same time.

Actually, you're a guy so you have to give the new Kindle to your sister and make do with the old one. Next week, we explain equitable distribution of closet space for the married.

You can give it to your sister, but if you leave it on your account she can charge books, mags, papers to your credit card.

You can de-register your Kindle before giving it to her, so that she can register it to her own account, or you can choose to leave it on your account so that you can share books.

I share my account with several family members. If they buy a book, they send me an Amazon gift card for the amount. That's the arrangement that works for us, but you can also opt to do the gifting option mentioned above.

How do you De-register the kindle acct. I bought my mom a kindle, and they registered it to me. I'm in oklahoma and she is in california. I'm trying to help them.

Go to Manage Your Kindle

Then Manage Your Devices

Click on de-register for the kindle that you want to remove.

I started with a K2. When I got a K3, my older sister got my K2. Now I am getting a K4, my older sister will get the K3 and my younger sister will get the K2. BTW they are all still registered to my account, so all K's will have all my books.
