Print book, electronic book: Buy One, Get the Other Free (Almost)

Kindle Matchbook

Amazon’s Kindle Matchbook program launches today. If you buy (or bought in the past) a book new from Amazon, the Kindle version is available at a discount–either $2.99, $1.99, $0.99, or free.

This would be advantageous, as I see it, in the following situations:

  • You lost a book you once purchased
  • It’s in storage but you want to read it again without going through seven boxes to find it
  • You want to easily keyword search a book on any device
  • You like it so much (or you like the author so much) you want to buy it again

Okay, so the last one is a stretch–I doubt this is raking in royalties for authors, but it’s a cool idea on Amazon’s part. All the available books are here.

What do you think?
