Good news for avid readers who love to get that Amazon box on your doorstep. The company is now going to offer you the chance to download the e-book version of the hard copy you have already purchased for free or low cost for the Kindle e-reader.
There is a catch as usual, the publisher has to register the books with the MatchBooks program and it works with books purchased since 1995.
The new service will have 10,000 titles when it launches in October.
