Amazon’s Kindle MatchBook service has gone live today, allowing customers to buy a heavily discounted Kindle copy of physical books they’ve purchased from the online retailer. Prices range between free and $2.99, offering a quick and cheap way to expand your Amazon ebook library. And on that note, there’s good news: Amazon says that 70,000 books are enrolled in MatchBook at launch, dwarfing the original 10,000 titles it announced last month.
It’s a great idea, but I’ve been purchasing books from Amazon since the 90s, and it was only able to match 14 of them. Many of the unmatched books are available from Amazon—for full price.
