Book lovers will be glad to hear that Apple is now selling iBooks gift cards (as discovered by iLounge). The iBookstore is tied to a user's iTunes account, and regular iTunes gift cards will still work to purchase your next iBook. But, these gift cards are a great way to remove any doubt a recipient may have regarding whether an iTunes gift card will work in the iBookstore. Another bonus: this will allow gift givers to target their presents towards books rather than games or some other iOS apps. It is unclear whether or not the iBooks cards will work with the rest of iTunes. It's nice to see Apple marketing books and these gift cards are a great way to do it. Should Apple start creating iTunes rental gift cards or some other gift card? Let us know in the comments below!
