The e-reader known as the Kindle has won many fans. Millions of Kindle 3 devices were sold in the last quarter of 2010 alone, according to Amazon. Because many couples and families may own more than one Kindle but have a single Amazon account, it may sometimes be necessary to register more than one Kindle to that account. Amazon allows up to six Kindles to be associated with a single account.

List of Registered Kindles

Each Amazon account holder can access a list of registered Kindles via the "Manage Your Kindle" page. The list of Kindles registered to an account holder's name is under the "Your Kindle(s)" section.

Kindle Serial Number

A second Kindle may not be registered to an Amazon account until the Kindle owner obtains that Kindle's serial number. To obtain the serial number, press the "Home" button on the Kindle, then the "Menu" button, and finally, select the "Settings" option. The 16-digit serial number is found on page one of the Settings screen.

Registering Kindles

Users must click the "Register a New Kindle" link underneath the "Your Kindle(s)" heading on the "Manage Your Kindle" page at Amazon, entering the 16-digit serial number into the provided field. Click the "Register a New Kindle" button on the right.

Sharing Kindle Material

The Kindles that are registered to the same account may share all Kindle books, but not magazines or other subscriptions, purchased through and registered to that account. Any magazines, newspapers, blogs or other subscription materials may be registered to only one Kindle. Although subscription materials may not be shared, they can be transferred from one Kindle to another Kindle if it is registered to the same Amazon account.
