Announced back in September, a new service from Amazon that more closely ties together printed books and e-books recently made its debut. But what is Amazon MatchBook and how does it work?

While electronic books have become increasingly popular, publishers have not been quick to embrace bundling a digital version when you buy a printed book. Amazon’s service offers a Kindle e-book version of select books at a steep discount, from free to $2.99, depending on the title.

Even better, MatchBook works for books you’ve already purchased in the past from Amazon; it can search your shopping history and tell you which books are eligible, dating all the way back to purchases made in 1995.
