A Small (Lithuanian) Town Christmas

2014-12-23 18.01.28This year, for Christmas, Laika and I were forbidden from our usual tradition of leftovers (nothing is open Christmas Day) and lounging around all day reading. Nope, this year Rasa invited us (both of us, mind you) to celebrate the day with her family in the northern Lithuanian village of Mažeikiai, which, with a population of around 45K, is the 8th largest city in the country.

You could give a gift card, sure, but what if you want something more personal or precise? What if you want to give someone a copy of this one great book you just read?

It’s easy: there’s a button, we tell our loved ones. And our loved ones look at us skeptically and consider revoking their previously bestowed title of She-Who-Is-An-Expert-In-All-Things-Book-and-Ebook.

So we’re here to back up our statement with the following image-heavy tutorial: There is a button on almost all major ebook retailers’ sites, and many of them offer you the option of emailing the recipient immediately with their gift, or on a future date of your choosing, or of retaining and printing the…
