Amazon On-Line Books Available?

I'm in the middle of purchase a paperback book from Amazon and it asks me if I want to 'upgrade' for $3.99 and be able to read my book on line. It does not seem to be in any way connected with the kindle (which I don't own). This was the option:

Get online access to your physical books with Amazon Upgrade:

Start reading the book online while you wait for your physical copy to arrive
Add highlights, bookmarks, notes, or tags to any page or section of text
Print pages, and even copy and paste text from the book
Read your book from any Internet-connected computer, meaning your book is always with you
Purchasing online access to your books is easy. After buying an eligible physical book, we'll give you the option to purchase access with Amazon Upgrade.


I have never noticed this before - is it new? I looked at this same book last week to see if it was available for kindle (it's not), and I never noticed this.
Does anyone know what's up??

It has been mentioned before, see Amazon launches Amazon Online Reader. It was what Amazon talked about at the Frankfurt Book Fair, see No sight of Amazon's Kindle reader at Frankfurt Book Fair.
