Linking two kindles (saving page locations)

Hello all,

I'm sure it has been asked before and for that I apologize. I searched for an answer but couldn't find one. My question is whether two linked kindles would save book locations. Here is the scenario:

I have a Kindle 2 that I generally keep at work (m-f) for lunchtime reading. Some days I bring my Kindle home through the week for evening reading, but find that I often forget to bring it back into work the following morning. I have considered buying a second Kindle that I could keep solely at home or at the office.

My question is this: Could Kindle #1 be linked to Kindle #2 so that it locates the location of the book (page number) found in the corresponding device? For example: I buy a book at work with Kindle #1 and read to page 50. Would I be able to open Kindle #2 (at home) and have it load to page 50 of the book that I previously purchased with the other device?

Thank you for any and all assistance.

Welcome to MobileRead mikeinpa. The answer is "Yes", it's called Whispersync! It will work across all Kindle devices and Kindle apps.

Syncing Material Across Your Devices

If you read the same Kindle Store book across multiple Kindles, you'll find Whispersync makes it easy for you to switch back and forth. Whispersync synchronizes the bookmarks and furthest page read among devices registered to the same account. Whispersync is on by default to ensure a seamless reading experience for a book read across multiple Kindles.
To turn Whispersync off:

1. Visit the Manage Your Kindle page.
2. Scroll down to "Manage synchronization between devices. Learn more." and select "Learn more."
3. Select "Turn Synchronization off."

Once you turn synchronization off, your books will still open to the last page read on that device, but Whispersync will no longer sync bookmarks or the furthest page read with other devices. If you would like to sync the book manually, press the Menu button and select "Sync to Furthest Page Read."

Whispersync only works on books purchased from Amazon. If you manually add other books from non-Amazon sites, you will have to remember your location.
