Humble Bundle has been very popular for the last few years and has focused most of its energy towards video games and music. The company announced it was experimenting with ebooks a few months ago and finally launched literary branch today. The essence of this program is giving you a number of titles and YOU determine the price. You pay what you want. This ensures that if you are on a budget, you can pay as little as .01, but the average purchase tends to be around $9.99.
The titles included in this Humble Bundle are Signal to Noise – Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean, Old Man’s War – John Scalzi, Pirate Cinema – Cory Doctorow, Pump Six – Paolo Bacigalupi, Zoo City – Lauren Beukes, Invasion – Mercedes Lackey, Stranger Things Happen – Kelly Link, and Magic for Beginners – Kelly Link.
Over 19,000 packages have been sold in the first twelve hours and the entire program is poised to do very well. There are only 13 days to pull the trigger and buy these books, so time is of the essence! You can check out the main website HERE.
