No Kindle Required

If you know someone with a love of books, but no Kindle, you can still send them the gift of a Kindle book!  If they have an email address and a pc or mac, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Blackberry or Android phone then they can get a free Kindle application and read Kindle books! No Kindle required

And Amazon have finally introduced Kindle book gifting! In the past you could only send them a gift card but now you can send them a Kindle book.

From the book page on Amazon, beneath the BUY button is a GIFT button. Click Give as a Gift, and you will be taken to a gifting page. Enter the recipients email address and a message. Note that you can send it to any email address; you don't need to know their amazon account address. They receive the email message in their inbox, letting them know they have a gift. They follow a link and then log into their Amazon account to send the book to their Kindle.
Very easy, the whole process takes seconds for the giver and the receiver.
