Amazon launches Kindle MatchBook in US with 70,000 e-book collection

updated 11:29 am EDT, Tue October 29, 2013

Free, cheap e-books provided to compliment physical book purchases

Amazon has launched its program that provides digital versions of books they already own in physical form, which can be read on a Kindle device or the Kindle app. Kindle MatchBook will provide Amazon customers in the US with Kindle titles that match books bought from the retailer in the past, with the Kindle copies being provided either at no charge or priced between $0.99 and $2.99 each.

Mirroring its similar AutoRip service for CDs, Kindle Matchbook will count for books that appear in customer orders dating back to 1995, as well as for future purchases. While Amazon requires for publishers to enroll their titles into the service, it appears that many have taken up the offer since its announcement, with over 70,000 e-books being available to download instead of the original 10,000, and more expected in the future.

Though the Kindle MatchBook is just being launched in the United States, it is likely that it will expand the service into other regions in the future, just as it did with AutoRip.
