Give quickly delivered e-books this Christmas

With Christmas just a mere five days away and the shopping malls and department stores packed to the gills with frantic shoppers, the idea of buying any gift, big or small, is a bit daunting. Even a quick run to the nearest bookstore is stress-inducing, thanks to holiday traffic and overwhelmed salespeople. So avoid those lines and traffic jams and deliver your gifts in 30 seconds or less with Amazon Kindle books -- no Kindle required!

Variety of ebooks

These e-books will satisfy the bookworm and avid readers in your life with just the click of a mouse. Plus, because you can read these books on an iPhone, Android, PC or Mac with a free Kindle reading app, your recipient doesn't even need the actual Kindle. Gift-giving has never been so easy!

Where to buy & what it costs

You can buy Kindle books from Amazon.com. They typically range from $3 to $6, but can cost as little as $0.99 and as much as $20, depending on the title.

How to buy

Buying a Kindle book is easy -- all you need is the recipient's valid e-mail address. Once you find the titles you want, just click "give as a gift." A screen will pop up that asks for the recipient's e-mail address, when you want the gift to be delivered and the option to add a personalized message. Enter your credit card information, click "place my order" and your gift is bought!
