I have a new Kindle Fire and an older Kindle and want to keep both, however, one is registered to my old email and Amazon account, and the Kindle Fire is registered to a newer email account and Amazon account. How can I combine the Amazon accounts and change the email account to the same one, and keep the books that I have?

Register the Fire to your existing account and the books will be available via the cloud.

You can't really combine accounts. What you can do is register the device to the old account that has the content you want and download the content to the device. You can then reregister the device to the new account and the content will remain as long as you don't delete it from the device. Syncing won't be available to you, however, unless the device is registered to the account where the content was purchased.

That doesn't work with a Fire. As soon as you de-register it from the old account, unlike other Kindles, the downloaded Amazon content disappears.

Why not just de-register the Fire from the new account, register it to the old one, and leave it there? If you want to keep two accounts, use the new one for other purchases and continue to buy Kindle content on the old account.

won't work for a fire - the content will be gone the moment it's deregistered

I'd recommend registering it to the old account and then changing the email and account information on the old one - amazon will not combine the accounts

Ah, thanks. Somehow I missed the OP has a Fire. Probably should've known from the sheer number of Fire posts these days. :)
