Step 6: Select the permissions you want to set, then click the Invite button to send off the e-mail. Free accounts are limited to sharing notebooks for view only, while premium accounts can allow shared notebooks to be modified as well.

When the people you invited to share your notebook with receive the e-mail, they'll have a link they can click to access your notebook. Depending on the permissions you set, they may or may not need to log in to Evernote to access the shared notebook.
