Thanks for your help. The only reason I can see for limiting the number registered to one account is to increase the sales of Kindle Books. With the amount of books that I have in my archives that I share with (now) 5 other users, if they were to buy even half of those books, it would be worth the purchase price of about five kindles (each).history_lover said:What everyone else has explained is accurate - I just want to point out that it would be completely counter productive for Amazon to limit the amount of devices registered to one account. Why would they want to discourage you from buying more Kindles?
Yep. I have seven of them on one account for my classroom and it's no problem. But some of the books are only licensed to 5-6 devices at a time, so I only send them to a kindle when someone wants a book from the archives.Forster said:I have six on my account. I don't think Amazon limits the number of Kindles on the account but the publishers can limit the number of Kindles/devices that can access a copy of a particular book. So if one owns 6 devices and the publisher limits it to 5 devices once you download the book to 5 different devices, the 6th can't access it.
