A resource for e-books that is new to me!
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:19:41 PM »
Hi all,

I know that we all like free things so, from the outset I must say that this post will disappoint if that is what you are after! However, if you like 'nearly free', it may interest you.

I was pointed towards a site called. "StoryBundle" (http://storybundle.com). where you can pay what you like for the books on offer. There is a minimum charge of $1 per book They offer a bundle of books of a specific genre at any one time and the bundle changes. The current bundle is of the crime and thriller genre and there is about 15 days to go on the current offer.

All their books have no DRM. IE. there is no copy protection. That means you can read them on just about all the devices you own, no matter who makes it. For example I can read them on my PC, my Android tablet or my Kindle. They can be downloaded straight to your kindle if you want.

A nice feature is that you get to say what percentage of what you pay goes to the author and what goes to the company. You can also donate a percentage to charity.

It's a nice idea as far as I am concerned. I have just downloaded the current bundle of five books and because I chose to pay at least $7 I received two bonus books. The downloads to all devices has been flawless.

There are a number of ways to pay including Amazon or Paypal as well as the usual credit / debit cards.

As I say, it's a nice idea allowing one to support authors. If you think that you may be interested, check out the website and have a look around. The FAQ page should answer most questions.
