You can use a Kindle iPad app with a single Amazon account. You can’t switch accounts just like in your Twitter app.
However, there is a growing number of users who have more than one Amazon account, and they have Kindle books in both accounts. For instance, they keep purchased Kindle books in one account, and have an active Kindle Unlimited subscription in the other.
If you want to switch an Amazon Kindle account in a Kindle app, you will need to go through a time-consuming process of registering an app. Switching back means registering the app again.
Solution – read Kindle books in a Safari browser
A simple solution to get access to Kindle books from your other Amazon account is to open a Kindle Cloud Reader page in a Safari or Chrome browser on your iPad.
Kindle Cloud Reader is a way to read Amazon’s ebooks in a browser on a computer. And browsers running on an iPad are supported.
How to read Kindle books on your iPad without an Amazon app
1. Open Safari browser on your iPad. You can also use other browsers, as well. I have successfully tested the solution in a Google Chrome app.
2. Type read.amazon.com in an address field. It’s a Kindle Cloud Reader home page.
3. A Kindle Cloud Reader login panel appears. Enter the credentials of your Amazon account you want to use in Safari.
4. The library view appears. Tap on any book cover to open it. You can adjust the reader settings the same way as in a desktop browser.
Read Kindle books in iPad’s Safari – things to know
Just like in desktop browsers, the Kindle Cloud Reader interface is outdated and ugly.
Some features are not available on the iPad. For instance, to go back to the library view, you will need to tap the Safari’s reload icon.
You may not be able to set up the two-page mode.
Kindle Cloud Reader lets you see and read only the books downloaded from the Kindle Store. There is no way to access your sideloaded ebooks.
There is no way to enter the full-screen mode. You will always see the browser’s interface.
Once you log in to your Amazon account in Safari, you can shop Kindle ebooks in a next tab.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
