Kindle on ethernet network

My wife and I are on an ethernet cable network and share a printer. We both have Mac Minis. Mine is Intel running OS X 10.6.8, and hers is PPC OSX 10.4.11. I have a Kindle, and a kindle reader on my Mac. How can my wife get access to my books on her computer? I thought I read somewhere that with 10.4FX this was possible. Or that she could have her own Kindle app.

    Can you explain in more detail what you're trying to do?

    I am not a Kindle owner, but perhaps some others of our users are.

    I am trying to use my wife's MacMini OS X 10.4.11 with Kindle. There are Kindle apps for desktop computers, but her computer is PPC, and the Kindle apps are only for Intel Macs.

    I have a Kindle, and I have a Kindle app on my desktop Mac OS X 10.6.8, Intel.

    Somewhere I thought I read that with Ten.4Fx I could access Kindle materials. My wife's and my computer are linked with an Ethernet cable. We are able to share a printer. Is there some way she can share my Kindle app, or something like that?

    Thanks for your help.
