With Valentine’s Day around the corner, you might be wondering what to get your loved one if you’ve decided to exchange gifts. If you’re looking for a thoughtful, practical gift, you can’t go wrong with the Amazon Kindle eReader. Not only is it the perfect gift idea for anyone who loves to read, but it’s also a great present for anyone who wants to rekindle their reading habit. Read on to learn how to personalize your gift, then enter for a chance to win one. 

Open up a new world of possibilities for your loved one

Owning a Kindle eReader is like having access to the world’s largest library at your fingertips. Does your partner like to read fiction books and biographies? With a Kindle eReader, you can give them both, and more! Thousands of ebooks across all genres are available through the Kindle store. Depending on your local library, your partner might also be able to borrow ebooks online and conveniently read them on their Kindle eReader.

A Kindle eReader is also much lighter and easier to transport than most books. So if one of your partner’s resolutions is to read more this year, an eReader will make it easier for them to achieve that goal. They’ll be able to fit dozens of books in their bag and read while commuting or while waiting for a friend at a coffee shop without carrying much extra weight. 

Make your gift special by preloading their favourite books

While a Kindle eReader is a thoughtful gift for any avid or beginner reader, you can go the extra mile and show your partner you care by preloading some of the books they’ve been wanting to read. That way, your loved one will be able to enjoy their gift and dive into a new story right away! 

Goodreads is a great resource to find book suggestions, but if you have any recommendations, please share them in the comments section as well to inspire others’ reading lists.

Boys On The Tracks which is the story of 2 boys Don Henry and Kevin Ives that were murdered and then placed on the the train tracks as a cover up on August 23rd 1987 by the governor of Arkansas at the the time Bill Clinton, Arkansas detectives and judges because the boys witnessed a drug drop they weren’t supposed to see. To this day justice still hasn’t been served and it needs to finally be served. It’s an excellent read and I would preload onto my Kindle eReader for my Loved One.
