I wish to give my Kindle paperwhite to a relative so she can use it during recovery from a serious surgery. Yesterday I deregistered it and there was a message from Amazon saying something like "you have been put into a queue."
12 hours later, all my content is still on my Kindle.
I was hoping to present this to her soon. Does deregistration take days? weeks? months? It sounds, in this electronic age and with this electronic company to be a trivial thing.
