"It’s been great to see the positive response to MatchBook from both readers and publishers," said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President, Kindle Content. "MatchBook enrollment has grown from 10,000 to 70,000 titles in just a few weeks and we expect it will keep expanding rapidly in the months ahead."
The vast and growing collection includes books dating back to 1995, which is when Amazon first opened its online bookstore. And just like regular e-book purchases, Kindle MatchBook copies have special features such as Whispersync, Popular Highlights, and X-Ray.
