Is there any way that Kindle books can legally be used in a library setting? I have seen some titles available as Kindle format only (no print edition available) and would like buy several Kindles and Kindle titles for loan. is this legal? I'd be grateful for some advice. Thanks, Hilary Jones, Learning Resources Service Manager,. Bedford College, UK

I don't think Amazon will respond here and you'd be better to contact them directly. There's a Contact Us Button towards the top right of this page.

Not in the UK. But you could sell it yourself and put the money towards a different one.

Can I put some books I've read on one Kindle on to another kindle which I have bought?

At the moment I have 5 Kindles registered to my Kindle so we can all read the books. These are close family members as books could be put on from any device and charged to my account if they were added though without my knowledge I would be sent an e mail so would soon know it had been done.
At the moment I have a question awaiting answers to see how many devices can be added.
