Christmas Gifts Ideas: Kindle books December 7, 2010

I love this new world of e-books, it opens so many possibilities; now, if only we could lend books….

You can also give specific book titles as Kindle gifts; if a recipient doesn’t want that particular book, he or she can convert the gift to a Kindle gift certificate. Also worth noting is that your friend receives an email message when the gift is purchased, so if you want to keep it a secret until December 25th, you’ll need to place the order on that day.
