One feature request we’ve been hearing a lot is the ability to <strong>share books with friends</strong>. Say you just finished reading <a href="https://app.bookboard.com/book_landing/61/0?global=true">Mechanimals</a> with your kid, who loved it, and know that a friend or relative and their kids would love it too. You’d like to share this story – but how?

A big goal we have at Bookboard is to <strong>make sharing books easy and free</strong>. We’ve always wanted Bookboard to be a place where families can connect via the books they read and share. Folks love sharing physical books – shouldn’t it be even easier with digital ones?

So, we’re really excited to introduce our newest feature :
<h2>Give a Book to a Friend…</h2>
<h2><a href="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/share_page.png"><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1824" alt="share_page" src="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/share_page-1024×350.png" width="504" height="172" /></a></h2>
The basic idea is – <strong>send books to your friends via email</strong>. Here’s how it works:<!–more–>
<ol>
<li>When we send email updates, you’ll see snapshots of books you’ve been reading, each with a "Share" button attached.</li>
<li>Click a snapshot for a summary about that book, and you can choose to share – enter an email address and an optional short message.</li>
<li>Your friend gets an email, showing the book you’re sending them, free for signing up with Bookboard.</li>
<li>Once they start their trial, the book you sent will be the first one there waiting for their kids!</li>
</ol>
If you have friends who already have Bookboard, sharing works just as you’d expect – they’ll have the books you send them added to their kids’ shelves too.
<h2>… and Get a Free Month of Bookboard!</h2>
<a href="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/share-money1.png"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1844" alt="share-money" src="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/share-money1.png" width="300" height="150" /></a>We think sharing a great story is its own reward, but an extra motivational boost couldn’t hurt =). When you send a book to a friend, and you both purchase subscriptions (or, you already had a subscription and your friend purchases), <strong>you’ll *both* get a month discounted from your next Bookboard bill</strong>. The number of discounts is unlimited – for every friend who buys Bookboard, you’ll get another month off. It’s our way of thanking you for spreading the word!

Why not get started today? We’re going to be working on sharing books even further in the weeks ahead, so please let us know if you have any suggestions or questions!
