Kindle MatchBook Helps Digitize Your Print Library at a Discount

If you buy a hard copy of select books from Amazon, the bookseller will let you buy the eBook edition for a steep discount in its new Kindle MatchBook.

What do you think about this new program? AppNewser has all the details:

Amazon customers who purchase or have purchased select print books will be able to buy the Kindle edition for cheap. Most cost somewhere between free and $2.99 … The feature works for books purchased all the way back to 1995, the year Amazon opened for business. Publishers must enroll these titles in the program. The program launches next month. It will include the bestsellers: I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving and The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch, among others.
