It doesn't disable or disturb the other books, and if a book doesn't have an Amazon ASIN number, their "spy system" probably doesn't even know what it is. You'll be fine with non-Amazon books.
Hi CWN - thanks for the explanation. I've read a lot of comments about Amazon "censoring" people's reading, so was a bit confused about what the remote connection was actually doing. This helps alot. Thanks!
