Got a Kindle Fire as a gift and gave my old Kindle DX to my granddaugher. How do I keep my new books from showing up on her device? I set the parental controls on her device but they are still showing up.

You don't. All devices registered to the same account see ALL the books.

Your only choice is to open her her own Amazon account. Get her a free webmail (such as Gmail), then open her a separate Amazon account.

Whatever books she wants she'll have to start adding to that account; she will no longer have access to your books when her device is deregistered from your account.

The Kindle DX doesn't have parental controls. Do you mean a Fire HD or HDX instead? If so, Folina's post explains everything.

How do you deregister a kindle?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 25, 2014 5:15:42 AM PST
Go into your menus (since you didn't say which Kindle, I can't be more precise), usually under settings and there should be an option to register/de-register.

Alternately, you can hover your cursor over your name up there at top right (here on this page), choose Manage Your Kindle, then Manage Your Devices. Choose the correct device, and click "deregister".
