Just saw this news before the weekend that I wanted to share.      As this article points out, Amazon is now allowing gifting of e-books to non-kindle owners.

It is just another great example of all the opportunities with digital distribution.   The e-book world has come a long way since I bought my first generation Kindle a few years back.   Between that, my second Kindle, and my iphone I have amassed close to a hundred books that travel with me everywhere I go.

I’ve watched the Kindle Store grow from a few thousand titles to a staggering 725,000 book count currently available for download (and now gifting).

I have been preparing a full out post on my love for the Amazon Kindle so I’ll save that for another time.  It will be really interesting to see the response from authors and publishers on this new innovation from Amazon.
