How to gift an e-book

Here is a guide to sharing those e-books with friends and family.

  •     To gift an e-book, the giver needs to know where the reader usually gets his or her e-books: Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), or Apple iBooks (iPad, iPhone or iPod touch). Unfortunately, offering an ebook or a gift card on Kobo is not available for the time being, as they are making some changes on their website.
  •     For Amazon and Barnes & Noble, on the book's page, on the right-hand side, there is a link “Give as a gift,” “Buy as gift” or “Send as gift.” It’s really that easy.
  •     The gift-giver then provides the receiver’s email and a personal message, and can choose when the give will be delivered.
  •     Note for Apple iBooks users: If the gift receivers read on an iPad using iBooks, there is no easy way to give them a book directly. It is possible to offer a gift card that they can use to buy one or several books for their account. This is done on iTunes. In the right-hand side column, there is a button Buy iTunes Gifts, with a choice of e- or print. Gift-givers can choose the amount and add a personal message pointing to the book they want to give.
