I want to give my old kindle to my husband. How do i re-register it to him so he can order and pay for his own books?

Does he have an existing Amazon account? You would register it to that account.

You might want to consider using the one account for all your books. Then you can share them. We do this. The account is in my name but my husband has access to it, and buys his books whenever he wants to. I use gift certificates to buy our books, rather than having lots of small credit card transactions. I keep the gift certificate balance topped up and keep track of what we each spend on a spreadsheet - note this is mostly to check that I don't overspend since I'm a speed reader LOL. I just update the spread sheet from MYK a couple of times a month.

I strongly agree with Julie's suggestion - once you start buying books on separate accounts, there is no way to combine them, and lending works only on small portion of all Amazon books.

My kindle fire went through the washing machine. When I buy a new one how do I find out what my registration was on the old one so I can retrieve my old data?

It's all on your Amazon account. So long as you register the new Fire to the same acount it will automatically have access to all of the books, apps, and other content that was on your old Fire.

Did you get an email instructing you to do the update? That email address is likely the account on Amazon.

There are Family Library options, though I don't know all the detials, so you can share books.
