any advice on what's the best method for sharing Kindle books with a spouse?
(1) Different Kindle, Same account (seems like the most straightforward but we will mix-up each other's reading progress)
(2) Kindle Family Account (but do I need to sign-up for my spouse's account with a VPN?)
(3) Any other suggestions?

Hmm maybe Jeff can advise you. I would propose method 2 though. From my understanding, as long under Family Account, books will be shared. Only “purchasing person” will need the VPN. But maybe I may be wrong.

My wife and I share a single kindle, thought of creating Family Account, but as I hardly use it now, I didn’t create.

Great deal. May I know which date you ordered?

Tried searching Google but can only find PW4 lowest at US$99. PW3 was US$79 during Nov though.

I use (1). You are right about the 'progress problem' but I get around it as no one reads the same book at the same time lol
