Hello, Yes you can simply purchase a new Kindle an then have all of your downloaded content transfer onto the new Kindle. To do this follow the steps below once you have purchased your new Kindle:

Step 1

Launch your computer's Web browser and open the "Manage Your Kindle" page on your Amazon.com account.

Step 2

Ensure the "Whispersync Device Synchronization" in the Manage Your Devices sections is set to "On." If it isn't, click the "Turn On" button to the right of your username. By default, Whispersync is turned on.

Turn your new Kindle on by sliding its power switch to the right.

Step 5

Press the "Menu" button on the new Kindle's keyboard and select "Settings" using the five-way controller.

Step 6

Select "Register" and enter the same username and password ***** the Amazon.com account you were using on your old Kindle.

Step 7

Visit the "Manage Your Kindle" page on your computer's Web browser, and click the "Actions" button to the right of your previously purchased or downloaded Kindle content.

Step 8

Select "Delivery to my ... " from the context menu, and select your new Kindle device from the Deliver to drop-down menu. Repeat this for all items you want to send to your new Kindle. The e-books and subscriptions will automatically appear in your new Kindle's library.
