Speaking only for Amazon Kindle Books and assuming that your tablets are running the Amazon Kindle app:

You can't "copy" a Kindle book between devices.

However, if both of your devices are registered to the same Amazon account, the cloud/archive where the book is stored is available to both those devices. You can read the same book at the same time on the separate devices/apps.

It's really pretty dishonest to come here pretending to have a question, and then just "happen" to throw in your self-promotional spam.
By all means, read the Bible, you seem ethically-challenged!

Why has this poster not been back for the "help" sought?? Could it be that this thread was just an excuse to spam?

Hello everyone,
Thank you for your helpful comments. This is the first time I have placed a post and was not aware that I was not supposed to use the "Insert a product link" link in the Message box. I was genuinely looking for help as my husband and I have only just purchased our tablets and I am only learning how all this works. Maybe Amazon could remove the product link box so that others don't inadvertantly get trapped into using it as I have done.

My apologies if I have offended anyone as this was certainly not my intention. I am definitely not a "spammer", just someone new looking for help.

Thank you M Francis for your helpful link. I was not aware of it until your post.

Kind regards,
(Never too old to learn - even if it means making some mistakes along the way!)

I'm sorry. Please read my explanation in my post below. I'm just a newbie learning the hard way. Thank you for your help.

If you're looking for help, then post a question. Don't promote your book. That's just tacky.

Your apology will be better accepted once you delete the reference to your book and, in fact, any mention of it from your OP.

How do I do that please?

Matt says:

Underneath each of your posts, there should be a link that says, "Edit this post". Click on that link for the first post in the thread and edit your post. It's roughly in the same place that posts by others have links "Permalink", "Report abuse", and "Ignore this customer".

The "Insert a product link" button is useful for linking to products under discussion in the post, e.g. linking to the specific product about which you are asking. Using it for self-promotion is tacky and against forum rules. Asking for this useful feature to be removed because you misused it is likely to annoy those of us who make use of it properly. I'm sorry that you are having trouble getting help on the forum. However unintentionally, you are pushing a lot of negative buttons with your comments.

If both devices are registered to the same Amazon account, both you and your husband can access the same books. There are some limitations. For example, many books can only be accessed by six devices from one account. Some books may have lower limits.

Hope this helps---

Thank you so much for your kind help. I have removed the link and now have a better understanding of the button's purpose. As my husband and I have separate Amazon accounts, I now understand we will not be able to each have a copy from the one purchase. That's ok. I was just thinking we could share like a printed book.

I apologise again for pushing so many negative buttons in my ignorance. I have learned a lot in the last few hours.

Thank you again for your help,
Kind regards,

Thank you for editing your post.

You can share like a printed book if you share exactly the same way you would a printed book. In other words give your kindle to the other person.

Thank you. Yes, this is what we will do.
