We wanted to provide some new product news from Oyster – just in time for the holidays. Putting a new spin on gifting books this season (an always popular gift category), Oyster is introducing the gift of reading that keeps on giving.

Gift subscriptions are available, starting today on OysterBooks.com/Gifts in increments of 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months ($10, $30, $60 and $120, respectively – custom timeframes also available).

Gift subscriptions can be given in two easy ways:
— Email Delivery – Schedule the gift subscription to be delivered by email anytime, anywhere with a personal message.

    A most smart move. It’d be a ‘gift that keeps on giving.’

    Unfortunately, I just had a most chilling series of thoughts:

    1. Oyster comes up with great ideas.

    2. Oyster takes off.

    3. Oyster become THE subscription book service.

    4. Oyster is bought out by Amazon, with the DOJ lying supine and passive as usual.

    I don’t want the federal government dictating what medical care I can or cannot get. But I do want a federal government that keeps any one company from dominating every aspect of book sales and distribution from retail print book sales to digital book subscriptions.
