Locking Content/Read Only?
Hi all --
Is it possible to lock a Kindle or make a Kindle read-only? This to prevent accidental deletion or excessive notes/highlighting. I haven't purchased a Kindle for me/my family yet so I can't experiment. Anyone know? Your help is appreciated!

Not normally, no. However, if you manually set the file read-only via USB, you might be able to prevent a book from being deleted. But I haven't tested it.

If you've purchased the books from Amazon, they are stored in your media account and you can re-download them for free anytime.
If they are freebies you've downloaded, like from here, they should be stored on your computer already.
