Humble Bundle is running a new campaign for banned and challenged books. There are 22 titles that are available and if you buy the whole thing for $15, the combined savings is over $250. There are some famous and important works here, including Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, William Styron’s Sophie’s Choice and Hubert Selby Jr.’s Last Exit to Brooklyn. You also get Jeff Smith’s excellent Bone Vol. 1 comic, the wrenching Barefoot Gen Vol 1: A Cartoon Story of Hiroshima, My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult and two comic and essay collections from Neil Gaiman.
The one good thing about the Humble Bumble collections is that all of the ebooks are DRM free and can be downloaded as a PDF or EPUB. These two formats are read by the vast majority of e-reading apps for smartphones and tablets. If you have a Kindle, I recommend using Calibre to convert the EPUB to a MOBI.
