Amazon has announced it has a new service available for owners of its digital readers and tablets called Kindle Matchbook. The Kindle Matchbook service offers customers the ability to buy digital Kindle editions of print books they purchase from Amazon for $2.99 or less. Books available via Matchbook will sell for $2.99, $1.99, $.99, or free.
Amazon says there are over 70,000 books currently enrolled in Matchbook and more titles are being added every day. Amazon did something similar to this with their music service that allows people to purchase physical CDs and albums to get digital versions at no additional cost.
Major publishers anticipating in Matchbook include HarperCollins, Macmillan, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Amazon Publishing, Wiley, Chronicle Books, and Marvel. A number of titles from Kindle Direct Publishing authors are available as well. Users can get free digital versions of books for purchases they made via Amazon will we back to 1995. The book does have to be enrolled in the Matchbook program.
“It’s been great to see the positive response to MatchBook from both readers and publishers,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President, Kindle Content. “MatchBook enrollment has grown from 10,000 to 70,000 titles in just a few weeks and we expect it will keep expanding rapidly in the months ahead.”
