Buying eBooks For Gifts


It’s no secret that I love books. After all, I write romances and it was the love of reading that led me to writing my own. You should see the bookcases in my office stuffed with everything from paperback to hardback. But maybe it would surprise you that I still buy books for my daughter? She’s a grown woman now and has her own tastes in reading material. She loves paranormals, probably after years of reading the Harry Potter Series and the host of copy-cat books that followed it.

So after I bought a paranormal novel by a new author I wasn’t familiar with and really enjoyed it, I thought my daughter would too. I bought it for her as an eBook so she can read it on her app.

Gone are the days of heading to the bookstore and buying the book as a gift. Or even passing around a book you enjoyed. (I miss bookstores) But then again, I think I like this better. The author makes another sale. I buy the book as a gift online, and Amazon, Barns and Noble or whoever does the rest.

Easy peasy.

What do you think of ordering eBooks as a gift?

  1. I think it’s great. We also use an app for Kindle where we can get library books at no cost. Unfortunately with all of the moves that I’ve done I have donated hundreds of books. My book is available hardback, paperback, and e-book. I know people who have bought each one of those. I think it’s a good option.

  2. I still buy ebooks as gifts too. Just an FYI, I recently found out that until the person accepts the gift and downloads it, it doesn’t show up as a sale on your royalties even though you have already paid for it.
