Buy Print Version of eBooks You Own For Cheap

170622591

You know the question.  Do I buy the paperback or the e-book?  That is the question.  Why would I buy both?  Well we don’t have to ask this question anymore, says Amazon.  The retail giant is about to test a new book service that slashes the print book price significantly.  Today, the new service for Kindle and Matchbook, lets its customers buy the electronic versions of books they have already purchased in print form.  The prices will range from $.99 – $2.99.  Some books are free.  What a deal!  For Matchbook owners, you can buy Kindle edition of books as far back as 1995.

Amazon Kindle

“One of the most common requests Amazon receives from its Kindle customers is a way to build parallel print and digital book libraries, which hasn’t been practical at full retail prices. …many print lovers will enjoy Kindle features like text searching of books, especially reference books.  Kindle fans, meanwhile, still want print editions of books as souvenirs and art objects.”  (Grandinetti, vice president of Kindle Content)

I am a big e-book buyer.  My iPad is filled with a great selection of eBooks loaded on my Kindle app.  But I do get a warm comforting feeling when I see books lined up on bookshelves.  I would love to get all my favorite books in print form.  The sound of flipping through a book, making dog ears, taking notes, and admiring the binding.

Yeah, I’m in.  Are you?

    Nicole,
    I am like you, I like paper books as well. But with Amazon giving you the option is really great. Especially if you have an older book that is getting old (you know, the pages are becoming dog eared) you can now have an electronic copy of that aging book. Thanks for the review, it was really helpful and informative.
