Tis the Season to E-Book Gift!

E-books are the perfect eco-gift - no shopping, parking, idling in traffic, gas & tolls, shipping & stress! ~ just click and it's there on time!
I love this article to walk you thru it!

How to Gift an eBook

Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales reports are in; Kindles, iPads, and Nooks are flying off the shelf! I was in a Barnes & Noble on Friday and the line at the Nook station almost went out the door. What does that mean? eReaders will be under millions of Christmas trees this year. But it’s a little more difficult to imagine gifting something as virtual as an eBook, right? Wrong!

Now you can easily gift an eBook with a few clicks of the mouse. Amazon and Kobo allow you to purchase specific eBooks as gifts. All you have to do is type in the email of the recipient, along with the date you’d like the eBook “delivered.” Or you can print out a gift receipt to put in a Christmas Card.

For iPad, Nook, and SonyReader, you can purchase gift cards. (Amazon and Kobo also have gift cards.)

Digital publisher Open Road Integrated Media made the above series of videos for anyone wanting to gift an eBook this season. The video can be a little bit glitchy, so give it a second to warm up. Also, click the “See More” button to select the appropriate video for the appropriate eReader.

How to read e-books on your computer:

You don't need an e-reader to read an e-book - spread the good news about this new technology....

There are free Kindle apps to read e-books on all (newer) computers, Mac or pc, (and most phones and mobile devices too).

User requirements:
PC - Windows 7, Vista, or XP
Mac - Mac OSX 10.5 or higher

EASY STEPS:
1. get an Amazon account or proceed to Amazon books if you already have one
2. do a search for: Morning Rituals - How We Awaken - enjoy free 20-page sample and 4,000 word book description
3. on right sidebar - you will see "download free Kindle apps" - to read book on your pc or Mac
4. select and download app for Mac or pc
5. it will ask you to "register your app" - use your same user id as your Amazon account (just username and password, that's all you need)
6. return to/re-search for my book title and click option to "buy"
7. purchase book, hurrah, you are almost there! :)
8. launch Kindle app on your desktop; save icon on your desktop
9. in app, click home, then library to click and read book, there you are!

EXTRA NOTES FOR MAC USERS:
Note: if you want to transfer your book from Kindle for Mac to your iPad:
1. start from iPad
2. install free kindle for iPad app from app store or Kindle
3. register your app with same user id as Amazon acct
4. press synch button to synch computer and iPad
5. launch Kindle app from iPad
6. click Kindle app "home", then "archive" (book is waiting there), tap title to download it, then back to "home" where it is available for viewing.

The difference between buying through iTunes/iBooks vs through Amazon/Kindle:

1. Books with color photography such as mine are great viewed on the high resolution screen of your Mac devices - iPad, iPhone, iPod - however:
2. iTunes/iBooks does NOT allow you to take your books to view them on your Mac computer/laptop
3. there may be third party apps available to do so, but I don't yet know them - if you do - please let me know
4. the key difference between viewing your book on iPad through iTunes vs thru Kindle - is that iBooks offers the virtual touch "page turning" technology which lets you touch and "flip" page corners over as though they are real paper. If you like that as I do, I purchased my book thru iBooks to view on my iPad just for that feature.

I hope you find this useful, meanwhile, please let me know if you have any further questions or updates so I can make this guide as helpful as possible!
