For the First Time, Give the Gift of Kindle Books — No Kindle Required

Amazon announced its Kindle Store is the first major bookstore to offer eBook gifting. Kindle Books can be sent as gifts to anyone with an e-mail address–no Kindle required. Kindle Books can be read on Kindle devices and free Kindle reading apps for iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry and Android-based devices.

To give a Kindle Book as a gift, customers simply choose a book in the Kindle Store, select "Give as a Gift" and send their gift to anyone with an email address. Notifications of Kindle eBook gifts are delivered instantly via e-mail and the recipient redeems the gift in the Kindle Store to read on any Kindle or free Kindle app.

Just in time for holiday gift-giving, Amazon editors' picks for the best books of the year are:

  1. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
  2. Faithful Place: A Novel by Tana French
  3. Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
  4. Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
  5. The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
  6. Freedom: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen
  7. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
  8. To the End of the Land by David Grossman
  9. Just Kids by Patti Smith
  10. The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis

Kindle Reading Devices

Kindle lets you Buy Once, Read Everywhere – on Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry and Android-based devices. Amazon's Whispersync technology syncs your place across devices, so you can pick up where you left off.
