Setting up a Family Library for a Kindle Fire HD 10

My wife usually reads at night using her Amazon Kindle before going to sleep. Recently, however, she experienced problems charging the Kindle. We looked at new Kindles, including the Kindle Fire HD 10 Tablet1px x 1px That Kindle is larger than her prior Kindle, but she was impressed with how light it is and felt that she could read comfortably at night in bed with it, so we ordered that one online; it arrived today. When I purchased our first Kindle, the first one offerred, we shared the Kindle. Eventually I bought her a Kindle of her own and then later we purchased a new third Kindle for her, but since Amazon didn't offer a means to transfer books from one family member to another, we didn't have a mechanism for transferring her books from the first and second Kindles to her latest Kindle, if we created a second account just for her, so she would see my books if she looked for books we'd purchased to download to her Kindle and I'd see recommendations refelecting her reading tastes when I logged into my account. It was annoying that Amazon didn't previously provide a means for us to separate our Kindle ebooks, but when the new Kindle arrived today, I decided I'd check to see if they now did offer an option for family members to share or transfer books, since it had probably been at least a year since I'd last checked. Happily, I found that Amazon now offers a "Family Library" option that allows adult family members to share books with one another, which would allow me to create a new Amazon account for her and share the books she'd already purchased under my original account to her new account.

Kindle Fire Won't Power On

Yesterday, I found my Kindle Fire would not power on. I had used it a few hours earlier without seeing any message about the battery charge being low. But repeated attempts to turn it on by hitting the power button did no good. So I plugged it into a charger. Hours later when I attempted to power it on, I still was unable to do so. Following advice posted at My kindle won't turn on, I found that holding in the power button for 30 seconds then releasing the button and then tapping the power button again resulted in it powering on again. When it powered on, I saw the battery had a full charge.

Kindle App Invalid Item

I've been getting an "Invalid Item" message stating "Please remove the item from your device and go to All Items to download it again", when I try to read some books I've purchased through Amazon on my Android phone. I've tried suggestions I've found elsewhere for resolving the problem, but there are still a few books that I've been unable to download and read with the Kindle app on my phone.

Electronic Book Reading with Kindle

There is a May 28, 2008 article with information on Amazon's Kindle electronic book reader on engadget titled Bezos: second Kindle is "not that near," Amazon to launch paid streaming VoD. I've considered buying one of those. I'm running out of space to store all of my books and am storing boxes of books in my attic now. I'd like to be able to have at least a good portion of them available electronically with the capability to mark passages I find particularly interesting (I never markup my physical books, though). But the price has kept me from buying a Kindle.

According to the article, Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, has said that there are 125,000 books available for the Kindle. I didn't know it also could allow you to surf the web or listen to music in MP3 form. One of those posting comments to the article stated the following:

Frank - the Kindle can check e-mail, surf the web, & play mp3s. The browser still needs some work but it is usable. Internet service is free and at decent speeds as long as you are in a Sprint service area. The Kindle is definitely a niche device but could become more mainstream with some changes, primarily price & a larger screen. IMO it's not as ugly in real life as the pictures represent on the web but could use a better design. I have a few other quibbles with it but have no regrets in buying one.
