in your kindle,e, press the Menu button, and then select Settings. Select Registration.

Customer:

Unfortunately it says deregister and not register.

***** *****nell :

ok we need to deregister first

From your device:

Many thanks for all your help. how long will it take for this kindle to update my books?

***** *****nell :

it will update your books immediately

***** *****nell :

you are welcome

Customer:

It still hasn't updated with my current books.

***** *****nell :

just a note, you can also manage your books from this page https://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle (just login to your amazon account)

***** *****nell :

can you login to your account from the link above

***** *****nell :

No it says items not found.

I can't see them.

***** *****nell :

it seems it is not the email address associated with your original kindle account

Yes, it is my only email account.

***** *****nell :

Did you check your archives? (in kindle)

Oh no, I have just had a thought my original email account went down and I had to go on to gmail. Unfortunately I can't remember my original email address. So sorry. Is it possible to change to my gmail account please?

Yes, it is same as I have always had.

***** *****nell :

can you go to your kindle again and de-register first

***** *****nell :

and then register again with that email

Customer:

Done. Sorry I am a real techno phobe! Will I find my books in archive rather than the home page?

***** *****nell :

yes, you should be able to, can you check now

Customer:

I have found the current book I am reading in archive. Will this kindle now be registered to my gmail address?

***** *****nell :

yes

***** *****nell :

in fact, it is not registered your gmail address. it is registered to your kindle (amazon) account, and your amazon account is linked to your gmail

Customer:

Thank you so much for all your help. Have a good day.

***** *****nell :

in other words, your gmail is associated with your amazon (kindle) account

***** *****nell :

you are welcome

***** *****nell :

have a nice day

Customer:

:-)
