Have all your Kindles registered to the same account.

If you failed to do that and already have sizable collections on several accounts, you might be able to lend some of your books, once only, for a fortnight. See amazon.com/kindle-lending for details.

You can also declare one of your accounts your future shared library, and register Kindle temporarily to others just to read "legacy" content. Behavior of Kindles when de-registered vary by model.

If your Kindles are registered to the same account, they just need to download the books from the account. If they have their own accounts, here's the lending info:

How do I purchase a gift title and send to the recipient's Kindle?

There is a Give as Gift option on the book's product page. You need a regular email address for the recipient, do not use their Kindle email. You can specify a date of delivery for the email they will receive. They will have the option of accepting the gift/book, or taking the amount to use towards another book.

Jo Anna, what do you mean you "sent a book from your Kindle to your e-mail address" Do you mean you copied a book as an attachment and sent it? What "location" did you send it to? You can't just e-mail your books to other devices, they won't work that way. If you're trying to read one of your books on a PC or Mac, you need to install Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac on the other computer, register it to your account, and download the book from the archives section on the app to the PC or Mac. In other words, you don't e-mail yourself books or loan yourself books, you register other devices or apps to your account to do that.

If you're trying to do something else, be more specific about exactly what you did and what you're trying to accomplish.
