If your books are DRM'd they wouldn't be able to read them anyways if your account info was removed... I suggest a full factory reset which will remove everything, including the books.

DRM = Digital Rights Management. It's a type of digital lock that prevents any books purchased on your account from being read on someone else's...
From the MobileRead Wiki:
Hard Reset (PRS-350/650/950)
WARNING: A HARD RESET WILL ERASE ALL CONTENT ON THE READER.
1. Power off the Reader Digital Book.
NOTE: If the Reader Digital Book is active, you can slide and hold the power button until the Device Shutdown screen appears and then tap Yes to power it off.
2. On the bottom edge of the Reader Digital Book, using a thin object such as a paper clip, press the RESET button.
3. Turn on the Reader Digital Book.
4. While the screen displays Opening book... , simultaneously press and hold down the Previous Page Turn button and the Size button until the Reset All screen is displayed.
NOTE: If Opening book... does not display on the screen, charge the battery for several hours before attempting the reset process again.
5. In the Reset All screen, press the OPTIONS button to delete all content, restore all factory settings, and clear the DRM authorization state.

Prior to the reset you should connect the Reader to your computer, start the Sony Reader Library software, sign into your account, go to the "Manage My Devices" under "My Account" and "deauthorize" it. This will remove it from your account and allow another person to register it.

Regards,
Bob
