Own a paper book? Download the ebook free or cheap.

Thursday, August 6, 2015

Shelfie is a free app for iOS and Android that allows users to get the ebooks version of the books they own either for free or at a deep discount. You simply take a picture of your bookshelf (a "shelfie") and the app will identify all the books on your shelf (think Shazam for bookshelves). We've hustled deals with about 350, or 15% of publishers, to allow you to download the ebook copy of your paper books for free or a huge discount (if it's not free then on average you'll get 80% off what you'd pay on Kindle). Shelfie is for everybody who wishes they didn't have to re-buy a book just because they want a paper copy at home, an ebook on the subway, and an audiobook in the car. Take a #Shelfie today -
