Amazon unveiled Kindle Matchbook today, a new service that offers affordable ebook versions of some of the physical books you’ve already purchased from Amazon. If the books qualify, you can get the Kindle versions for between $US0.99 and $US2.99, and future books you buy that qualify will get you the same deal.

You can click here to see if any of your past book purchases qualify for cheap ebook copies. If they do, you can purchase them and have them sent to your Kindle (or your desktop, smartphone or tablet with Amazon’s Kindle app installed). Hit the link below to read more and to check if your previous purchases qualify.

  • While this is a positive step forward to legally obtaining a tehnologically compatable copy of a book you already own and there was some talk ( unsupported by publishers of course ) in regards to a second hand ebook market. It doesn’t address the bigger issue of purchasing a copy ,or purchasing a licence to use/read a book and that E-book retailers have the power to wipe your e-reading device and revoke all your licences on whim.

    • Little confused here? If you purchase a book, hard back or eBook you automatically have rights to read it and own it. Unless of course you are inferring Amazon do not have the right to sell it in the first place.
