no, they won't "transfer", but you can download from your Cloud all the books bought from and transferred through Amazon from your account if you register it to the same account

what you won't be able to "transfer" in that manner are samples and books from other sources that were not downloaded via amazon

Which Kindle is easier to use --paper white or fire

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 1:10:59 PM PST
Does it work? If so, I'd keep it. (I have two myself.) You can use it to loan to friends, or to have an extra to carry with you.

For what? If you're looking for a dedicated reader, the paperwhite is probably what you want. If you want a more tablet-y experience (videos, games, etc, and some reading) you want the Fire.

Neither are difficult to use, but they are two completely different type of devices. What is the main reason you have for getting a Kindle?

A lot of people use e-ink Kindles to read on and the Fires for everything else. I don't know if easier is the right question to ask since they are both pretty easy to use and are both touch screens.

Give/sell it to someone, use it as a spare, use it to lend books to someone (just lend that person the Kindle), etc.

I have some old Kindles and I've been using them to loan books. I recently sold one for a decent price. I still have a couple of others and I'm glad to have them.

I want (and that is the key-want over need) an e-reader. I have an ipad--but find it bulkier when reading. I have an older version of a Kindle, which I got in July of 2010. It still works but the new ones seem less bulky and easier to travel with. Not sure if that is true but rational for wanting a new one.

For what it's worth, I have a KK and I purchased a PW back in October...and I love it! I still have my KK, but I love the size and lighting of my PW.

Thanks--I went with the impulse and purchased a Paperwhite. How hard was it to transfer my books from my old one to the new one??? I am excited and can't wait for it to get here!

To get the books already in your Kindle library, register the new one to the same account if that did not happen automatically, which it usually does. Go to your account on your computer and select Manage your Kindle. There you will find all of your books listed. There is a drop down box called Actions next to each book. Select that, and you can send a book to your new device. You need to do this individually for each book.
