To do so, I created a new account for her on Amazon's website from a Windows PC. I then configured the new Fire HD 10 to use that account. The new Kindle then appeared under her account which I was viewing from the Windows PC. I've detailed the steps I took on her new Kindle to transfer books to her new account below:
If you already have another account, that is the default selection and you can click on the CONTINUE button to proceed.
In order to share content within a Family Library Library and share certain benefits of Prime*, you will be authorizing shared access to use credit and debit cards associated with your Amazon accounts for purchases on Amazon. Both accounts will retain their current payment methods, but you'll be able to see and use each other's credit cards.
Sharing payment methods enables
|We authorize payment sharing and want to enable sharing of content, Prime Benefits, and management of child profiles if needed.||☉|
|We don't want to share payment methods and only agree to share managementof child profiles across Amazon devices.||⚪|
*Sharing of Prime is only activated if either customer is an active member of Prime or in a free trial. Prime Video requires that both adults have an active credit card in their individual accounts.
The first option is selected by default and you can tap CONTINUE to proceed.
Select the types of content that you want to share within your Family Library.
Based on the settings below, current and future digital purchases will be shared across the Amazon devics and media apps that you own.
If you don't wnat to share your content and future purchases of a specific content type, uncheck the box. You can always change your Family Library settings later.

When you tap CONTINUE you will be advised to pass the tablet back to the Kindle owner to finish the porcess with the note that "we'll need some additional info" from the owner to complete the household setup. Tap CONTINUE.
You can now see shared contents on this tablet and other devices registered to your Amazon account. If you don't see shared content on your other device(s), try syncing it. If you are still having an issue, go to Settings and verify that sharing is enabled for both profiles.
After I completed that process, when I selected Books from the Kindle home screen, I saw the books that my wife had purchased from the other Kindle which she wanted to be able to read on her new Kindle HD 10. Ones that I had purchased were also visible. To remove the ones that I purchased which would not be of interest to my wife, I logged out of her account on the PC and logged into my account. For my account, I then selected Manage Your Content and Devices. With Books and All selected for Show, I went through the list of all the books we had purchased. For each of my books that would be of no interest to her, I clicked on the box next to that book under the Select column to add that book to the list of books I would not share. You can only select up to 10 books at a time upon which to perform an action, so once I'd reached that limit, I clicked on the button next to one of the books in the Action column and selected Manage Family Library. A small window then opened with a Remove from Library button next to my wife's name and "Family Library". I then clicked on the Deselect All button near the top of the webpage to deselect the previously selected 10 books, so I could select another 10, after I was informed that the books had been successfully removed from the family library, so would only be visible on a Kindle registered under my name. I repeated the process until I'd removed all of my books that I knew wouldn't be of interest to her.
