The Kindle versions through MatchBook will only be $2.99, $1.99, $.99 or free

Amazon has a new Kindle offering that will let you buy digital versions of some of your print books on the cheap. 

Amazon launched Kindle MatchBook today, which allows Amazon customers who have bought print versions of books on the e-tailer's site to also buy the Kindle versions as they become available for low prices. Amazon said the Kindle versions through MatchBook would only be $2.99, $1.99, $0.99, or free. 

So lets say you bought a print book on Amazon 10 years ago, and you now want the Kindle version, but don't want to shell out full Kindle price to buy the same book again. You can go to the MatchBook section of Amazon and search for the book to see if it's in the library. If it is, pay under $5 (or nothing at all) and you're set. 


Amazon said there are now 70,000 titles available in MatchBook, and more are being added daily. MatchBook will let you grab the Kindle versions for cheap as long as you bought the print version from Amazon, and your purchase history can go back as far as 1995 (when the site first launched). 

The MatchBook titles also have Kindle features like X-Ray, Whispersync and Popular Highlights.

MatchBook is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android devices, PC and Mac, but Amazon is likely hoping you'll buy an actual Kindle device for your MatchBook reading.
 
Last month, Amazon dropped the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD price to $139, and showed off a couple new members of the Kindle Fire HDX family (7-inch model for $229 and 8.9-inch model for $379).
