Amazon has announced the starting date of its new bundling program, Kindle Matchbook.
This will likely be a welcoming feature to those who were wondering about whether to by an e-reader or not since now they can read hard-copy books they already paid money for for a small fee or even no fee at all on an e-reader. I wonder if that small fee will end up going to the author/publisher or not. Does it all go to Amazon? Amazon could have easily charged people full price for this, so it is interesting that they chose not to, but then again, Amazon knows business and this will likely do the company more good than damage.
