How to manage/transfer content on another Kindle?
We are thinking of getting a Kindle for an elderly relative, but would welcome some advice.
She is an avid reader - 6 printed books a week - but is now struggling with their bulk and weight. She can't get out easily to buy new ones or use a library. So she is reliant on book clubs and friends to keep the supply coming.
We thought she might do better with a Kindle, so we took ours with us on our last visit. She tried them both, and found the Kindle Touch wifi easy to handle.
But she is not computer-literate, has no pc, no broadband, no wifi.
We have tried to think this through and the current plan is:
Buy the Touch and register it on our account
Find, buy and download suitable ebooks to it
Buy a mains charger so she doesn't have to worry about usb
Spend time over Christmas showing her how to use it
Then while she is working her way through the pre-loaded stuff, we continue sourcing and obtaining more ebooks, which we will transfer to her device each time we visit.
Here's the problem:
We live a long way away and see her infrequently
We don't have a laptop we can load the books onto and take up with us
She lives in a rural village with no public wifi access
So far the easiest solution seems to be that we keep all new books in our Amazon account. Then at each visit, we use the free internet and wifi access at her nearest library to download the latest batch to her Kindle. At the same time we can delete those books already read, to avoid confusing her. (I am reasonably computer-savvy, and comfortable with converting formats via Calibre, dragging and dropping books to the right folders etc)
Is there an easier way? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
