Kindle E-Books as Gifts–No Shipping, No Wrapping

And you don’t have to worry about whether the recipient owns a Kindle device per se, because a bunch of free reader apps make a Kindle out of pretty much anything with a screen.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.
