Changing Email Addresses
I have a question.
I'm buying my niece a Kindle for Christmas. She doesn't have an Amazon account, and I want all this to be a surprise. So I registered a new Amazon account in HER name but with one of MY email addresses (because I don't want "You've received a Kindle book gift!" notices coming to her email while I'm setting things up.) So right now, everything is registered to Foo@gmail.com (pretend).
Once I get everything set up with the Kindle and I gift her books to Foo@gmail.com, I intend to change the Amazon account settings to her proper email address (Bar@gmail.com), wrap everything up, and stick it under the tree.
My question is, will changing the Amazon email account affect the books in her account?
I ask because I have a Nook, and I know from DREADED EXPERIENCE that changing anything -- email, credit card, etc. -- can hork up everything dreadfully. Has anyone done this and can anyone speak to whether or not the books purchased under Foo will be affected when I change the Amazon account settings to Bar?

It should be just fine. The email address is not involved in the DRM at all.

I changed mine recently to my .edu address so that I could use Student Prime, and I have had no problems accessing my books. What a nice aunt you are! Do you want another niece?
