No, it doesn't, but it will mean that you can't read the books which are "locked" to the previous account.

Is this something new? Previously there was no problem reading Amazon books that were still on the Kindle, since the DRM is particular to the device, not to the account.

I wasn't aware anything had changed. I've heard of people doing "the dance," where they would register a friend's Kindle to their account, load books on the device they wanted to lend to their friend, deregister, then their friend would re-register the device. The books would remain readable until they were deleted. Apparently that was common before book lending...I can't say, I don't know anyone local that owns any sort of ereader. They're behind the times.

Re the OP: as you have problems with dexterity, is it within your means, or can you get a grant for Dragon Speech Recognition?

Just a thought.

Don't know whether the mods will allow the link:
