First of all, I'm sure the information is here somewhere, but I can't find any definitive answer on the internet, the FAQ and this forum is massive.
A simple link to an FAQ page works. I don't mind doing my own reading.
I have a couple of questions:
- If I buy an ebook, will I have unlimited access to it? I'm the kind of person that likes to reread certain books/series every year. If I have to pay for the books again then this is pointless for me personally.
- My brother is in the navy and he's overseas a lot. He usually takes the physical copies of books I have with him to read. Can I lend him the digital versions? How long? Or should I just give him access to my library or something?
- Do I have to have Prime to enjoy free books? There are better alternatives to Amazon in my country right now, so paying for a sub that I won't be using would be a waste of money.
If the answer to the first question is 'no' then the other questions won't matter.
If you buy an e-book from Amazon, it remains on your account and you can access it whenever you want with a compatible device or app, it doesn't expire. Although you can loan some (not many) Kindle books, you can only loan them one time and only for 14 days. You could buy an additional Kindle e-reader and give/loan it to your brother. If it's registered to your account, he will have access to all of the Kindle books on your account. (He'll also be able to buy books on the device using your credit card if the device is registered to your account.) If you don't live in the US, your selection of Kindle books will be different than you see on amazon.com. Licensing, distribution, and legal issues in your country will determine what's available to you. You don't need Prime to enjoy free books. Again, what's free to you will be different if you live overseas. The Prime lending library and Kindle Unlimited from amazon.com will be unavailable to you if you live outside the US. You can also get free Kindle books from sources other than Amazon, like from gutenberg.org
Note that books you purchase or download free from other sources are considered "docs" and are stored differently on a fire. Where you can put your Amazon book on an external SD card with a fire, documents (non-Amazon books) are only stored internally.
From what I can see, that may not be true for newer tablets using Kindle for Android. My latest check on the two drives shows the books to be on the SD card that is installed as an internal drive.

There is no such thing as a stupid question!
Corollary -- so long as you read before you post and stay on topic. :)
1.It says ,,Past purchases without Payment''.What this means?
2.How can I download the e-book that I have bought from Amazon? I can read it in Kindle but I don't know how to download it.. the book is related to question 1
3.I want to buy the first e-book called ,,Mathaophobia'' $14.39 but there is still the previous book ,,Answers unleashed'' which costs $39.99,total $54.38.How can I pay just for the first book Mathmphobia ($14.39) without paying for the second one?
You will have to talk to Customer Service and get them to remove/cancel that other book. You will not be able to purchase any Kindle books until you take care of that purchase w/o payment. Or any other digital items. That outstanding order has to be resolved somehow
