You may not transfer a book from one account to another.

Some books may be loaned to another account for 14 days only. You may only loan a book once, if the publisher/author has enabled loaning. Check in Manage Your Kindle - under the action button, it will show loan if loaning is enabled.

EDIT - This website explains Lending in greater detail - http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_k5land_content?nodeId=200527380

is your daugher's kindle registered to your account? if there are a lot of books in common that you want to read - that might be a good idea, then she has complete access to your archives

Of course, Betty may not want her daughter to have complete access to her archives either! ;-)

that is true...

I don't know if I would want my mom to have full access to my archives...lol! (actually she does because we share an account)

A shared account is the most practical legal solution to sharing Kindle ebooks among friends and family members and I'm surprised that more people don't take advantage of it. The only real issues are deciding how to fund the account and how to choose books to purchase. There are plenty of workable solutions to address both issues for friends and family with similar reading tastes and budgets. The other solution, for those who live nearby and see each other regularly, is to loan the actual Kindle devices to each other.

I've also thought book clubs could have a group account. Your buy-in is the Kindle of your choice, registered to the account (whether it's your sole Kindle or one just for Club reading), and your "dues" are, say, a $5 AGC each meeting period (or whatever) that funds the pool for book purchases.

In my wilder suburban mom dreams, I've thought of having an old-fashioned Bunco group that's ALSO a book club. As each team rotates tables, they'd get a new book discussion point. It could totally work. I just need 11 other people in driving distance ...

...who read.

Just remember that you can generally download Kindle books to up to 6 devices/apps at the same time so a club with 11 members would have to be reading 2 different books.

How do you download a book from a kindle app on iPad to another iPad user in the family?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2014 12:47:03 PM PDT
If the other iPad is registered to the same Amazon account, just do a sync on it and tap on the title under the cloud tab.

If the other iPad is registered to a different Amazon account, you can't put a book from the first account on it.

We might have to separate it into group accounts of no more than six, yeah. I'm glad this got bumped; I still think this could work. The only concern might be those types of folks who are so competitive, they won't play and chat at the same time. "Don't talk. Roll!"
