Amazon Announces Kindle MatchBook
Starting in October 2013, Amazon will begin offering Kindle MatchBook, a new service that enables you to obtain free or discounted Kindle copies of any qualifying physical books that you’ve purchased from Amazon — dating all the way back to 1995! The Kindle editions will range from free to $2.99.
I like that. When they first announced Cloud Player I was underwhelmed but then when I found out I had 371 albums available I changed my tune. All my CDs (yes I still buy CDs) are ripped on my machine at home. So now I use Cloud Player to listen to music at work all the time. Maybe with MatchBook I'll revisit some books I haven't read in a while.
I LOVE the idea. Sometimes I need the physical book but there's no question about the portability of the Kindle versions.
