I noticed a "transfer to computer" option when you want to buy a kindlenbook. If I do this, can I then send the book to my friend's kindle as a present by attaching the file to an email to her kindle email address?

you could, but she wouldn't be able to open the book on her kindle - what you want to do is use the Give as a Gift button and she'll be sent an email with a link to retrieve the book

Thanks. That makes sense, but I just looked at kindle book page and I can't find Give as a Gift button, only send to my kindle or transfer to computer. I have a UK amazon account. Is Give as a Gift available to us? Where would I find this button? S
