Share Kindle Books Back and Forth With New Family Sharing

Kindle book addicts, a small but mighty change is coming to your account — the ability to share books with your family. You know, just like you would in the olden days with hardcover and paperback copies of a book bought at the bookstore. Owners of the newest Kindles can now activate Family Library, which links two Amazon accounts to swap books between, so you don't have to use the same Amazon account any longer.

Once Family Library is in action, the two adult accounts can also manage up to four child accounts. The new feature will roll out over the next couple weeks in an automatic software update, or you can download the update starting today. Is a family book club now in order?
