With Amazon’s Kindle, you can carry around a library’s worth of reading material without weighing down your backpack. The e-reader also offers other conveniences, such as the ability to increase the font size for easier reading and to download books in less than 60 seconds.
If you’re wondering whether you can share books on Kindle, the answer is yes—but there are some things you need to know before sharing your Kindle books with friends and family.
Sharing Kindle Books With Other Devices
If you want to share Kindle books with someone who doesn’t have a Kindle—say, a friend who prefers reading physical books or who uses a different brand of e-reader—you can lend them your book for up to 14 days. To do this, go to the “Manage Your Content and Devices” page on Amazon’s website, select the book you want to loan, and click ” Loan this title.” Enter the recipient’s name and email address, then click “Loan.” Your friend will have 14 days to accept the loan before it expires, at which point they’ll no longer have access to the book.
Sharing Kindle Books With Family Members
If you want to share Kindle books with another member of your household, you can do so by creating a family library. Up to six family members can share books from each other’s libraries as well as from any public library they’re connected to. To set up a family library, go to the “Manage Your Content and Devices” page on Amazon’s website and select “Add family member.” Once your family members are added, go to “Settings” and select “Manage Family Library,” then choose which content types—books, audiobooks, apps, etc.—you want to share.
If you own a Kindle—or if you’re thinking of getting one—you might be wondering whether you can share books with other people. The answer is yes, but there are some things you need to know before sharing your Kindle books with friends and family. With Amazon’s lending feature, you can lend eligible Kindle books to other Kindle users or non-Kindle users for up to 14 days. You can also create a family library that allows up to six family members to share books from each other’s libraries as well as from any public library they’re connected to.
Can you share your Kindle books with a friend? Can you do that? Unfortunately, the answer is no. You cannot share books on your Kindle with anyone else.
The main reason why you cannot share books on your Kindle is because of copyright law. When you buy a book, you are only buying the right to read that book yourself. You are not buying the right to distribute it or share it with anyone else. That would be considered copyright infringement, and it is against the law.
There are some ways around this, of course. For example, if you have physical copies of books, you can lend them to a friend for a set period of time. But when it comes to digital books, there is no way to share them without breaking the law.
