Both my partner and I have a kindle and an iPad registered to an account each. Is there a way to share our books?

Can anyone help please, in simple terms as we are in our 70's.

Regretfully no. Books belong to the account they were purchased on.
You can swap devices or only use one account to buy books and share that account.

Do you realy need two separate accounts for books?

Just lend your partner your Kindle, then borrow theirs.

I have the Kindle my husband uses registered in my name to my account. I buy all the books but we both get to read them on our individual Kindles as long as we don't try to read the same book at the same time.

You must have ONE ACCOUNT ONLY between both of you for this to work
This means that any books already bought on one of your accounts will not be available anymore.
If one of your accounts doesn't have much on it, maybe it would be worth deleting that account completely from that Kindle & iPad & then register that Kindle & iPad to the other account. You would then have one account only & everything would be accessible to both of you on iPads & Kindles so everything available to both of you at all times.
I hope I explained this properly!
