Quick answer - you don't. You hand her your Kindle 'cause after all you are one flesh so you co-operate to your collective benefit.

Andreas Liland:
How Do I send a book to my wife's Kindle, when I have already activated my own Kindle? 

You can't. Logos is for "one user." Faithlife has graciously interpreted that to include a spouse, so long as the spouse isn't in full time vocational ministry. If you want your wife to be able to have access to the books, she will have to have access to your account.

For licensing and security reasons, Faithlife only allows you to have one email address associated with your "send to kindle." If your wife is using the same Amazon Kindle account, she should be able to download the resource from her device... or you can use the Amazon "manage your device" page... but you can't "send to kindle" from Logos to two separate accounts.

Make sense?

It makes sense, but it also makes you wanna suggest that maybe Logos could consider a solution like Apple and Amazon both have: Family sharing. Wink

I wouldn't be surprised if that required rewriting their contracts with publishers.

That isn't necessarily true. I tried explaining it in my post above this (after you posted), but I don't know if I did a good job. I just looked it up, and this is what I can report... As long as he and his wife have the same Amazon Kindle account, he just needs to do the following:

  1. Go to your Manage Your Content and Devices page on Amazon.com
  2. Click on the "your content" tab
  3. Filter "show" to "docs" (Logos books are emailed to amazon as "documents")
  4. Select the document (book) he wants her to be able to read.
  5. Click on the "actions" button for that document
  6. Click "deliver"
  7. Select her kindle device.

The document (book) will be delivered to her device. Again, this only works when your spouse is using the same account (which is different than the email addresses used for "send to kindle.")

For Apple, publishers have to agree... and not everything is "share enabled." I am unaware of Amazon's sharing program. Have a link?

Is there anywhere to reveal what my registered kindle email address is with logos either in the program or online? I changed all my devices addressees so I could easily identify them but this obviously broke this feature in logos.

sure. The "mobile devices" section of your profile on logos.com. The same info <might> be found within the "about" section of L6.

I made sure the address shown in the book info page matches my kindle. Amazon makes it really easy to edit this email address. 

And it worked like a charm.

I think there is a size limit of 50MB. Check if the resource you are trying to send does not exceed this limit

This is AMAZING!!  I just sent a book to my Kindle that I need to read to do a book review on, for Seminary.  I really like having all my library in Logos for research, but being able to take a book like this on my Kindle is invaluable for just plain reading.  It even makes a table of contents, if you use the "go to" option and choose it.  Thank you SO MUCH for adding this feature!

I have also fallen in love with this feature!

Can you send your kindle books to your logos library?

Welcome! Smile

Coastal Community Fellowship:

It depends upon what you mean by "can." If you mean, is there a simple way that is Amazon and Faithlife approved, the answer is no. If you mean "is it possible," the answer is possibly. The personal book builder takes any microsoft .docx file and imports it as a book.

you MUST call customer service. Users don't have the ability to change it, so as to prevent fraud.

you can also go to https://www.amazon.com/myk and set the email address on your kindle device. You could just change the email address on your kindle to the misspelled address you submitted to amazon.
