Amazon.com has just launched Kindle Matchbook. Here is how Amazon describe it:
“Imagine you bought a book from Amazon 18 years ago… and then 18 years later we made it possible for you to add that book to your Kindle library for $2.99, $1.99, $0.99, or free. What would you call such a thing?
We call it Kindle MatchBook and it’s available starting today.
MatchBook makes it easy to have both the print and Kindle editions of books you love–re-read and rediscover your favorites with features like X-Ray, Popular Highlights, and Whispersync on your Kindle or free Kindle reading apps for phones, computers, and tablets.
Kindle MatchBook is available on new book purchases, too. More than 70,000 books have been enrolled so far.”
Why am I telling you this?
Well, because I have enrolled all of my books in Kindle Matchbook and I have chosen to give them away for FREE if you already have a paperback copy bought from Amazon. Obviously not everyone wants a book in both formats but you might if you’ve just bought a Kindle or you’re off on holiday with your Kindle.
You can find your Kindle MatchBook titles (ones that apply to your buying history) and find out more in the FAQs at https://www.amazon.com/gp/digital/ and you can also find my books listed in Kindle MatchBook – click here.
Amazon have not said when Kindle Matchbook will be available on the rest of its websites, but I suspect that it will roll out in the next few months.
