This is one of those questions I been holding out on until I see Matchbook in action. I have several people (wife, in-laws) we bough books through amazon, on own or my wish-list, that they would never buy for themselves and gave them as gifts for the holidays.

Now I'm pretty sure I know what the answer will be from Amazon support but I wanted to throw out the question of is there any way I or the people who bought these books give the digital version to who is the proper owner of the book, if they were intended gifts?

No, the Kindle edition at the matchbook price cannot be gifted.

Look at it as an opportunity to get the Kindle version for yourself when you purchase the paper version for someone else.

No, but you could gift the person an Amazon Gift Card, and include in the gift message that you thought they might like to match up their book titles.

Of course, they might choose to use it for new socks, or toward a lawn motor battery instead, but ...y'know... that's up to them.

Bummer. I'm about to give copies of a book to my staff for Christmas and suspect that they might want the Kindle version. (But I'm giving them old-school books.) I'm not surprised this won't work, but it's too bad.

Give them gift cards.
