Is it easy to transfer my books to a new kindle, and then will I be able to give my old kindle to my husband so that he can buy books with it under his own account? Thanks for any info that you may have!

Yes your books are attached to your account not your device.

If its 30 days or less then you can return it other then that not really.

You can call Kindle Customer Service and tell them about the issue. Likely, they will exchange it for another Kindle 3G. The issue with the page backward button is a mechanical issue with your current Kindle.

Amazon has never done an "exchange" with an old Kindle for a new Kindle since the K1 days. They have done a refund on the old Kindle if the old Kindle is less than 30 days old and you had the choice to purchase a new Kindle.

Yes, you can get your books on the Fire. Technically, you don't transfer them, but rather download them from your account.

It would work like this:

1) You receive the Kindle Fire and register it to your account (or, if you bought it using your account and didn't designate as a gift, it would arrive already registered to your account). Once registered, there will be some way (I don't know what that is yet) to access the books that are on your account, and you would download them there. Alternately, you could go to your "Manage Your Kindle" page on a computer and download from there.

2) You de-register your old Kindle, give it to your husband, and let him register it to his account.

The order which you do these steps does not matter.

Yes, yes, yes...again.

My 6 year old got a kindle fire for her b-day and it has stopped working. I took it in to the store we bought it and they told me it had a stress fracture in it. Is this something that can be fixed or are we out of luck?
