Happy Independence Day to all my American readers! While you’re enjoying your fireworks and barbeque and beer (and possibly sweltering hot weather) why not pick up some great books to go with it all? The fine folks over at Humble Bundle announced their second Humble eBook Bundle featuring 6 books from authors such as Wil Wheaton and Cory Doctorow. As of this writing there are just about 12 hours left and 25,000 bundles have already sold. You can name your price for 4 of the books and if you pay more than the average (currently under $10) you get the other two. 6 great books for $10 sounds like a great deal to me (especially when the books separately would cost about $70).
All the ebooks are available in multiple DRM-free formats so you can read them on your Kindle, iPad or any other reading device of your choice. Proceeds are divided between the authors, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Children’s Play Charity and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. So grab a good book and tell your friends all about it.
