If you want to share a book with someone on a different account, you generally cannot. However, if the borrower is registered to your account, they will have access to all your books.

If you want to "share" with someone on a different account, some books are lendable. The catch is that a lendable book can only be lent one time EVER (once you get it back, you can never lend it again) and that the borrower only gets to keep it for 14 days.

See for details.

Another option that some do is purchase the Kindle Basic, and lend the Kindle to family or friends.

Sharing - you will have to be more specific - as there are several challenges with attempting to share any kind of ebook...

Who is the intended person ?
What kind of ereader, phone, or tablet do they have ?
