Amazon.in is re-introducing books as the perfect gift for every occasion with their #GiftABook campaign, reiterating that everyone deserves a never-ending gift: a gift that keeps on giving.
Bengaluru, April 19, 2023: With World Book Day being celebrated on Sunday April 23, Amazon.in announced its yearlong #GiftABook campaign. With the aim to inspire the culture of reading and gifting books in India, the campaign focuses on the significance of giving a gift that keeps on giving. Customers can discover books across genres and age groups with a host of exciting offers and deals on the specially curated gift a book storefront. This initiative by Amazon.in is a part of its on-going effort to ‘Make India read.’
To kick off the campaign, a digital video was launched earlier this year that captures the journey of a young girl showcasing the impact of books gifted to her at various stages in her life that help shape her story. The video emphasizes that books are gifts that never go out of fashion and highlights the many benefits of reading, such as enhancing curiosity, developing imagination, generating new ideas, and building character.

Rajarshi Guin, Director, Media, Amazon India expressed his enthusiasm for the campaign stating, “We are committed to contribute in building a nation of readers. Reading helps in developing imagination, enhance curiosity, generate new ideas and build character. These are some of the many reasons why Books are great gifts. At Amazon we are passionate about Books and we are working with sellers, publishers and authors to bring alive our vision of making India read more. Our campaign #GiftABook is a small step in this long journey to spread the love of reading. Customers can visit our website and app to browse through millions of titles across genre and languages to select a book for themselves and their loved ones”
Sudha Murthy, award winning author, said, “If you buy a book, you’re buying knowledge in a way. Books give you comfort, knowledge and a kind of flexibility—you can read whenever you have time. It’s an amazing gift. I always tell every mother that if you want your children to spend their time in the right way at the right age, then they must learn the habit of reading and to read you should have books. I believe people who have books are the richest people because they have the wealth of knowledge. Please read a book, please buy a book.”
This World Book Day, customers can also find eBooks, audio books and physical books in multiple Indian languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Malayalam, Gujarati & more and across genres on the specially curated storefront on Amazon.in from 16th – 25th April, 2023.
