You can help your friends get these books on a Kindle quite easily. Amazon makes it easy to share Kindle books with family, friends, and your closest acquaintances. Here’s how it is done:


Family library lets up to two adults and four children share all or some of their Kindle books, apps and audiobooks with one another. Sharing books can be a bit of a process, though. Before you can begin sharing Kindle books with family, you need to grant other family members access to your Family Library. Here’s how to do it:

  • Go to Manage Your Content and Devices on your Amazon account.
  • Under the Settings tab, in the Households and Family Library section, click on Invite an Adult/Invite a Child button, then have the other adult/child enter their Amazon email and password.
  • Click Yes to allow both your account and the other person’s account to share payment methods.
  • Choose which books you’d like to share with the other person, then let them do the same for you. After that, click Finish.Kindle Books
