A Follow-Up - Kindle

I just wanted to give you all a bit of a follow-up to my A Love/Hate Relationship - My Kindle.

First off - I thought of another love - I love the dictionary feature. Now if I don't know a word, I can easily move the cursor to it and get a definition.

Secondly, I did move my Kindle to Chris's account, and my books did stay on the Kindle. So it does appear to be as I stated in the comments of the previous entry.

Giving a Used Kindle as Gift

If your Kindle is registered to your account, deregister the Kindle before giving it as a gift. Deregistering ensures that your Kindle cannot be used to make purchases on your account. Also, once the Kindle is deregistered, any books, subscriptions, or other content you've purchased from the Kindle Store will no longer be delivered to the device.

Remove all purchased material from the Kindle device. Purchased Kindle content cannot be given as a gift according to the License Agreement and Terms of Use of the Amazon Kindle.
So perhaps they're not doing the big brother thing anymore and automatically removing the items from the Kindle but just telling you to do it. We'll see...

Amazon expects you to remove the books before "giving away your Kindle." Since it's still me that owns it - I don't feel obligated to do this. But I do feel secure in the statement that if I were to remove them from my Kindle via archiving (or deletion), I would not be able to retrieve them short of re-registering the Kindle to my original account.

Oh, and to answer Marty's comment/suggestion about calling. I did ask Amazon if they would combine our two accounts and/or transfer my purchases to Chris's but they said they could not do that.

Lastly, I have been taking it to the beach - and so far so good.

Deb Jacobs:

Kim, I sent you an e-mail.


Hi Kim

Just checked your new Grape Hops entry and wanted to say here--not there--I liked the old heading and lay out better--had more pizazz and interest--at least for me. Just a thought.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Jane, I'm not sure what you mean? I didn't change the heading on the blog (it never could match the heading on the main site b/c of the templates - unless I do my own), just changed the background though so it matches the site. Is it the fact that the blog heading and main site heading don't match?

Deb, did you see my response. It's a cute article, a little extreme, but cute.

Post a Think

(If you haven't left a think here before, you may need to be approved by the site owner before your think will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.)
