HarperCollins is continuing to experiment with bundling content. A new deal will put HarperCollins ebooks into the hands of Humble Bundle readers, who pay what they want on a sliding scale and can also give to charity as they buy books.
This deal follows new print-ebook bundling schemes with Ingram and BookShout and with BitLit.
Today, Humble Bundle teamed up with HarperCollins Publishers to launch the Humble Bookperk Bundle on https://www.humblebundle.com/books . Customers can pay what they want for a collection of digital literary works from bestselling authors, like Neil Gaiman and James Rollins, while helping support select charities.
Customers can pay what they want for:
— The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold
— Twinmaker by Sean Williams
— Busting Vegas by Ben Mezrich
— American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and
— Map of Bones by James Rollins with an excerpt of The Sixth Extinction
Customers who pay more than the average price will also receive:
— Angel’s Ink by Jocelynn Drake
— The Wasteland Saga by Nick Cole
— By the Blood of Heroes by Joseph Nassise, and
— The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho
Customers who pay $10 or more will receive all of the above, as well as:
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison and Trouble on Reserve by Kim Harrison, a Humble Bundle exclusive novella
This Humble Bundle supports First Book, which provides new books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children in need, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America Emergency Medical Fund, a non-profit organization for authors of science fiction and related genres, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form and its community.
The Humble Bookperk Bundle presented by HarperCollins ends on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time
