How To Gift An eBook

GREAT FOR ANY OCCASION

Whether it is for a holiday, birthday, or just because,
eBooks make great gifts.
You can use them for stocking stuffers
or insert them into your greeting or holiday cards.
Amazon makes it easy to either send the gifted eBook
directly to the recipient's email address

Unfortunately, not all countries have the ability to gift an ebook from Amazon.
Here are instructions to help you to do so from these specific countries:

Book Classifications

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?


HARD COPY VS SOFT COPY
Essentially, a "hard copy" is the print version or paperback.
This means the "soft copy" is a digital version or ebook,
which can come in .mobi, .ePub, or pdf.

WHAT KIND OF BOOK IS IT?

In fiction
ClassificationWord count
Novel40,000 words or over
Novella17,500 to 39,999 words
Novelette7,500 to 17,499 words
Short storyunder 7,500 words
BOOK GENRES EXPLAINED
Not all genres are as they appear.  Though genres can be used to express a target audience, that isn't always the case.  Sometimes, it simply explains the story content.  I am referring, specifically, to how Young Adult (YA) and New Adult (NA) are understood or perceived.
Though Young Adult can target youthful readers and New Adult is considered a more advanced version of the Young Adult genre, it can also be cased on the age of the protagonist(s).

YOUNG ADULT VS MIDDLE GRADE
In extremely basic terms, Young adult is considered to be for readers ages 12 & up.
Middle Grade targets the young readers between Children's Literature and Young Adult Fiction.

MIDDLE GRADE VS CHILDREN'S
Generally speaking, Middle Grade is considered suitable for readers between 8 to 12 years of age.
Children's is for the younger readers.

AGE VS GRADE
Age is used to help guide parents as to what is appropriate for their youngsters to read.
  • Board books: Newborn to age 3
  • Picture books: Ages 3–8
  • Coloring and activity (C&A) books: Ages 3–8
  • Novelty books: Ages 3 and up, depending on content
  • Early, leveled readers: Ages 5–9
  • First chapter books: Ages 6–9 or 7–10
  • Middle-grade books: Ages 8–12
  • Young adult (YA) novels: Ages 12 and up or 14 and up
The Grade of a book is based on the reading level of a young reader.  However, you can have younger children who read at a higher level than is recommended for their age.

ROMANCE VS EROTICA
Simply put, Romance novels are written with a primary focus on relationships and romantic love. Though not all stories have happy-endings, books in the Romance genre are expected to be "emotionally satisfying".
Erotica develops relationships using sexual intercourse.  That doesn't mean these stories don't have depth or purpose; it just means the primary focus is on the physical rather than the emotional.
