Changing accounts the Kindle is registered to...
I have a Kindle 2 and it is registered to my Amazon account. My husband just received one as a gift and I wanted him to register it to my account so we could share books. In his excitement though he forgot and registered it to his own account.
I know we can de-register it and re-register it to my account but am I correct in thinking that if we do that we will not be able to access the three books he has already purchased on his account?

In my understanding, the books are bound to the pid (kind of serial number of the reader) not to the account. So they still might be working.
If their file extension is .azw, they easily can be stripped from DRM (kind of copy protection) and can be read on any reader capable of Mobipocket (.mobi or .prc) files.

The only other solution is to remove the drm from the books that he bought on his account.
