The Amazon Kindle is a portable e-book reader device that utilises E Ink electronic paper technology to provide a clear display for reading text. The Kindle connects to the Amazon book store to enable the easy purchase and management of your e-book library. In order to utilise Amazon's purchasing and library management features, you need to link your Kindle to an Amazon account. If you plan to sell your Kindle or give it to someone else, you will need to unregister your Amazon account so that the device is no longer linked to your account. You can unregister your Kindle from your Web browser using the Amazon account management page.
