I read a lot. Most of the people in my life know this, and I frequently receive books or subscriptions as gifts. Most of these people would never give a gift certificate or cash as a gift, considering it impersonal and declassé.
The next time someone wants to give me a gift, is there a way for them to, say, buy me an eBook or magazine subscription and have it appear in my account? Or would that person have to buy a BN giftcard for the exact amount of the book, know my BN.com password, login as me, apply the giftcard and buy the content license?
Is there a non-BN bookstore that supports gift-giving?
