where educators come to learn from one another
This quote comes from a recent Follett newsletter - it has me wondering if it's true for all e-readers?:
Thanks, but does this also happen with Nooks?

The Follett writer is correct. Remember, Amazon requires devices among which books can be shared to be registered to a single account. This assumes a single owner for the book, and makes no distinction between the writer of a note or highlight, only between different account holders. Now there is a way to defeat this feature: de-synchronize the Kindles. I have written about how and why to do this here. The only way for the position in the book or the notes and bookmarks to show up across multiple copies is for the devices to communicate with the servers at Amazon. If you turn off synchronization, notes, bookmarks, and reading position will remain local with the device. If the devices synchronize, though, there is no way to keep what happens with a copy of the book on one device from happening with the other five copies that you have placed on five other Kindles on your account.
