The Humble Bundle is normally known for it’s awesome indie games, supporting charities, and letting you choose just how much you want to pay for what you’re buying. So it was great to see a notification in my email that they’re currently running a Humble Book Bundle with the same idea! Pay what you want for the books, and get awesome books!
Now, these are no piddly little indie self/pub titles by authors that nobody’s ever heard of, either. Take a look at the lineup!
Invasion: The Secret World Chronicle, by Mercedes Lackey
Magic for Beginners, by Kelly Link
Stranger Things Happen, by Kelly Link
Pirate Cinema, by Cory Doctorow
Pump Six and Other Stories, by Paolo Bacigalupi
Zoo City, by Lauren Beukes
And if you pay more than the current average, you get the following 2 books as a bonus!
Old Man’s War, by John Scalzi
Signal to Noise, by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean
It’s like playing “Count the Famous Names” with this 8-pack!
On their own, digital copies of all of these books would still set you back about $50. And there’s nothing stopping you, technically, from going in there and paying only $1 for them. I paid less than $15, which was still over the average so I could get the bonus books, and even doing that, I know that I got one amazing deal out of this, even if one of the books was one that I already own! This bundle has already made over $400,000, no small percentage of which is going to charity. If you can afford even a few dollars to put toward this incredible deal, you won’t regret it!
