Is it possible to share books on a Kindle in the same way that to limited extent you can share music on an iPod? Thank you for any advice.

To share books the kindles have to be registered to the same account.

Do not always assume that all books on your Kindle must come from Amazon. Any books without DRM i.e. most free ones from other sources can be shared easily.

In the setup guide on the kindle it says goto www.kindle.com/support, you can lend a book for 14 days if the publisher agrees. Havent tried this myself yet.

You can't if you live in the UK - it is only for those in the US - hence the .com address.

But if you read the Kindle manual it does say this facility is not available in all countries. IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE US.

i wonder if its possible to have a book sharing sticky at the top of the forum like the important announcement one?

I don't think Amazon make threads sticky, apart from their own ones. Otherwise the FAQ thread would be sticky by now.

I think someone tried to make the FAQ a sticky, but Amazon didn't do it.

I think I am :-) Especially as my post answering the first one was posted several minutes before the identical query was posted again.

Martina says:
Sorry, I inadvertently posted the question again. I understood your post and appreciate it. Its not available in the UK! Thank you.

You mean you expect people to read relevant threads on the first page of the kindle forum before posting?! :)

Damaskcat says:
No I don't. It was just I had answered the question in this thread!

Ok - no problems - just sometimes we get people doing that sort of thing deliberately as a wind up :-)

That was me last year. I eventually got through to a member of the Web Services team who thought it was a good idea, but nothing happened.
