As of April 21, 2020 a number of Merit Badge Pamphlets are already available for download on Amazon. BSA is rolling them out as soon as content is converted. As of mid-May 113 pamphlets are now available. Merit Badge Pamphlets in hard copy format are available from the Scout Shop National Supply and some pamphlets are now offered on Amazon, too.
Note: Once a scout is done using a Kindle version of a MB pamphlet, he/she can loan the copy for up to 14 days for another friend for use. Here’s how.
