HarperCollins Launches Their Third eBook Bundle Program

5636c1f020cc223fbc7ba2b3a013df7d2138ebf7[1]Following only weeks after the launch of print+ebook bundle pilot programs with BitLit and Bookshout, HarperCollins debuted a new bundle this week.

The trade publisher has signed up with Humble Bundle to offer the Bookperk ebook bundle. Unlike the print+ebook bundles, the Bookperk bundle is a time-limited offer, but on the upside the bundle does include up to 10 titles published by HarperCollins at a ridiculously low price.

For the next two weeks HC and Humble Bundle are offering readers the chance to pay what they want for American Gods by Neil Gaiman, The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold, Twinmaker by Sean Williams, Busting Vegas by Ben Mezrich, and Map of Bones by James Rollins.

Readers who pay more than the average price will also get 4 bonus titles, including: 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.

And like other Humble ebook Bundles,  customers who pay $10 or more will receive all of the above, as well as a bonus: a pair of titles by Kim Harrison: the novel Dead Witch Walking and Trouble on Reserve a novella.

In case you were worried, I bought the bundle and can confirm that the ebooks are available as DRM-free PDF, Kindle, and Epub. Given HarperCollins has supported their other bundle projects with their own DRMed ebookstore, I for one was concerned that they might have done the same here.  Luckily they did not; the ebooks in this bundle are DRM-free.

This Humble Bundle supports First Book, which provides new books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children in need, the SFWA Emergency Medical Fund, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

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."
