Restrict PW Internet-Access with Router-Whitelist

Hello mobileread-community!

I recently bought a Kindle PW. Unfortunately i have e few ebooks in my sortiment, from whose existence i don't want Amazon to know.
Secondly i don't want that Amazon collects data about my reading habits (except my buyings on their website).

I have a WLAN-router (Fritz!Box7320) with the feature to allow access only to certain website like wikipedia.org/ (whitelist) OR to block certain websites e.g. amazon.com/ (blacklist) for a given device respective MAC-adress.

If my whitelist contains only the entry
wikipedia.org/
is it for the PW 100% impossible to establish a connection to amzon.com OR to exchange data via WLAN?

Answers are very welcome!

Also note: this question is hacking related, and thus belongs in our Kindle Developers Corner subforum. I've moved your thread to the appropriate location.
