Matchbook from Amazon – My Grandfather Would Have Loved This

Everyone in my family fostered my love of reading. In fact, I can’t even remember learning to read. Either I was born with the ability or picked it us as my mother read book after book to me. At first, my family thought I had just memorized all of my books but when they brought home a new one and I read that, they realized that I was actually reading.

That's him, on the right!
That’s him, on the left!

 

My grandfather invariably bought me books for Christmas. Another voracious reader, before he gave me my gift, he read it himself. He had a theory that once I finished reading, we could have a nice discussion about the book. And, we did. Those talks with him are among my most cherished memories.

Why am I telling you this?

Because, in October Amazon is launching a new program called Matchbook. When you buy a book from them, they now allow the publisher to offer the digital version at a reduced rate or even for free.

My grandfather would have loved this idea. I love this idea, check it out for yourself!

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as
    with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
