Can you link 2 Amazon Kindle accounts to one device??

My wife and I are both avid readers and buy books regularly.

I am buying a Kindle 3 for her birthday, but want to know if I can make the books I have bought on my Amazon Kindle account available on her Kindle as well as those on her personal account (I read my books on my Android phone using the Kindle app and don't as yet have a Kindle to answer the question myself)?
There are a few end of series fantasy books that I have on my account that she wants to read to finish the series herself.

Thanks in advance Big Grin

In a word no!

As you are probably aware you can link up to 5 devices to 1 Kindle account but you can only link 1 Kindle account to a device (be that Kindle, Kindle for PC, Kindle for iPhone etc).

Maybe in the future it could be something they bring in. Like itunes has the option to link 1 account to 5 computers.

That's the other way round, though. You CAN link 1 account to 5 Kindles; what you CAN'T do is link >1 accounts to 1 Kindle.

But you can link 5 accounts on 1 computer as well and it goes on your iPod.
