Humble Bundle Launches New Audiobook Bundle

Humble Bundle pioneeredhumble bundle the idea of the pay-what-you-want app bundle when they launched almost 3 years ago, and today they're leading the field again with a new bundle.They've just announced a new offer which combines 5 previously published audiobook titles into one low cost bundle. You can now pay what you want for the audiobook versions of The Satanic Verses, Stolen, Abandon, Junky, and Found.

Hunble Bundle says that these audiobooks have a regular retail price of around about $685 (I bet you can find them for less on Audible), but they're letting customers name their price. The minimum payment is 1 cent, though of course you can choose to pay more. And if your payment exceeds the average payment (around $4.30 at the moment) you can also get the bonus titles: A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Blood Meridian, and On a Pale Horse.

Content bundles haven't achieved nearly nearly the same popularity as coupon sites like Groupon, but Humble Bundle and others have had some success. Over the past 3 years this site has launched numerous bundles for apps, and they have also from time to time offered bundles of ebooks on similar terms.

And they're not the only ones to offer ebook bundles. StoryBundle, a competing service which only offers ebook bundles, has launched 14 offers since it opened its doors in August 2012. And other sites including BookBale and Fiction Bundle have also jumped in, showing that there is a growing market niche for bundles.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
