I love giving people a great book, but everyone seems to have a Kindle or Nook these days! Giving someone a blank gift card isn't as fun for me, or allows me to be personal with a gift of literature. Sometimes a title just suits a friend or family member, but how do you give them a specific book for their e-Reader?
I was thrilled to find Livrada!
So, what is Livrada? It is a physical gift card, currently sold in Target stores, for a specific ebook title. Using the book's cover art, there is no question as to what you are giving. Yes, e-book giving just got personal.
Whether your recipient has a Nook or Kindle (or you don't know), redeeming the book is simple!
Instructions are right on the back of the card along with the pin.
- Go to Livrada.com
- Enter your pin and choose your platform (Kindle or Nook)
- Log in to your Amazon or Barnes & Nobel account to "accept gift" and download the title to your device.
It took me less than 5 minutes to start reading Fifty Shades of Grey on my Kindle. I was impressed and I am excited about the gift possibilities for family members with the upcoming holiday season, birthdays and other special occasions.
Currently available in 6 New York Times Bestselling Titles:
- Fifty Shades of Grey
- The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
- State of Wonder
- Gone Girl
- 44 Charles Street
- Odd Thomas
There are plans to expand to more titles and more retailers in the near future, but I wouldn't mind devouring any of their current selection of books. Right now, grab your e-book gift card, in the title of your choice, in the electronics aisle of Target stores.
