Hi! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help!

You don't have to 'transfer' the books off the the old onto the new, your books can exist on both. You simply must register your new Kindle using the same username and password ***** the old one.

To register your Kindle:

  1. From Home, tap the Menu icon (This looks like 3 vertical dots), and then tap Settings.
  2. Tap My account.
  3. Choose the Amazon account you want to use on your Kindle:
    • If you already have an Amazon account: Tap this option. Enter your Amazon account information. Tap Register. Your name will appear as the Registered User when registration is complete.
