When you purchased a nice eBook in Amazon Store, you are hooked immediately by this book and want to share it with your family or your best friends after you finish reading it without a break.
Oops, problem here. You can not share it with your family or friends! Because the book has DRM protection, they can only be read on your Kindle.
Relax, here we introduce you 4 methods to share Kindle books.
Method 1: Share books on kindle fire by removing Kindle DRM
Download and install Kindle DRM Removal. It helps you remove DRM from Kindle books, then you can copy your books to anywhere.
Now you can get ebooks that are free of DRM. Then just convert mobi format to ePub, and transfer them to other ereaders via USB or other ways you'd like.

Method 2: Share Kindle Fire ebooks with the same account
Before you choose this method, please make sure the people you want to share the book with is very close to you.
As we know, an Amazon account can be authorized on 6 Kindle devices, which is the base of this method.

4 Your books will show up on your friend's cloud, and he/she can sync the books now.
Attention: Turn off the Whispersync Device Synchronization if you are sharing Kindle books on different devices with a same account. Because it will automatically sync your last page read. Synchronization will also keep track of any bookmarks, highlights, or notes that you added, so you can view them on another device.

Method 4: Share Kindle books with Kindle Family Library
There is another easier and more convenient way for us to share our Kindle books, Amazon enables us share apps, books and audiobooks with family or friends. No need to lending out or share the same Amazon account.
We can set family library on our Kindle device, or set this online. Here I will introduce how to set it from Amazon official website, if yo don't have a Kindle eReader or Kindle Fire device, you can still have access to it online.
1Enter Amazon official website, hover "Your Account" -->"Manage Your Content and Devices", sign in with your Amazon account. Then click "Settings", you can see the "Households and Family Library" item.
2Click "Invite an Adult" button, then Amazon will let the invited adult enter his Amazon account information. Let your parner sit down at your computer and input his account.
3After you verify account, you’ll have to agree to share your payment methods. It is required to enable the Family Library feature — or you can only manage “child profiles”.
4After you agree, you’ll be able to choose to share which types of content with each other.
5Now you have linked the 2 adult accounts together. If you like, you can also create up to four child profiles.
6Amazon allows a full list of Kindle devices and app to access to the shared contetn, including Kindle eReaders, Kindle Fire tablets, as well as Kindle app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Win, Mac and the web. You can see the shared content from your partner's library under "Manage Your Content and Devices".
Note: To see the shared content on device, the option may not be enabled by default. If you cannot see the content on device, you have to click "Manage Your Content and Devices "-->"Your Devices", select each device. And check "Show (Partner Name)'s content" box under Family Library for each. Your partner have to do this for their devices on their own account, too.
