The pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle project has certainly been a success when it comes to indie games, and now it's looking to do the same for books. The latest edition of the bundle shifts the focus to literature, and like its gaming counterpart, it offers DRM-free content and lets you divide your payment amongst the authors and various charities. The bundle includes six books: Cory Doctorow's Pirate Cinema, Paolo Bacigalupi's Pump Six, Lauren Beukes' Zoo City, Mercedes Lackey's Invasion, and Kelly Link's Magic For Beginners and Stranger Things Happen. But for those who decide to pay more than the average amount — currently hovering just above $10 — they'll be treated to two bonus books in the form of John Scalzi's Old Man's War and Signal To Noise by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean.

Of course, the Humble team isn't the first to offer a pay-what-you-want bundle for books, with StoryBundle launching its first promotion this past August. It's also not the first time the Humble Bundle has tackled something other than games, as the project debuted a music bundle in July. But with names like Doctorow, Gaiman, and Bacigalupi, this is an attractive offer nonetheless — you can grab the book bundle now from the source link below.
