The Humble Indie Bundle initiative has been an eye opener for a lot of developers, in regard to the Linux platform. Linux users have been willing to pay the most for quality products. This trend is still maintained with the Humble eBook Bundle.
Unlike all the other Humble Bundles so far, the new collection doesn't contain any games. The guys from Humble Bundle, Inc. have decided to change the recipe a bit and propose an unconventional trade-off.
Instead of games compatible with Linux, Windows, Mac, users can now choose to buy a very interesting collection of book, from very well-known authors. As usual, if you pay more than the average, you will get a bonus of two more books.
“Eight works of literary genius. Humble eBook Bundle features eight masterful works from a prodigious league of award-winning authors. Name your price and receive Pirate Cinema, Pump Six and Other Stories, Zoo City, Invasion: The Secret World Chronicle, Stranger Things Happen, and Magic for Beginners. Customers who beat the average will also receive Old Man's War and the graphic novel Signal to Noise,”, states the official announcement.
The books are compatible with all platforms, just like the Humble Bundle games. They come in a variety of formats, including PDF, MOBI, and ePub. The books can be read on Ebook readers, computers, tablets, and mobile phones.
The proceeds of this sale will be divided between the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the authors, represented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and Humble Bundle, Inc.
To end on a high note, the Linux users, as usual, have paid the largest average sum for one unit. This trend has been observed in the past, for most of the Humble Bundles, and it seems to be a constant when it comes to quality content.
