At any given time, Humble usually always has around six book bundle deals going on. Every bundle has different levels. There’s always the $1 bundle with a handful of books. The $8 bundle has a few more books, usually better quality books. Then the $15 bundle which has the best books under the topic. All books are ebooks, available to download as PDF or ePub formats.
The dollar bundle is nice, because HELLO it’s only a buck! I’ll drop a buck for a PDF book that looks interesting to me. I love PDF books, because I can still highlight and annotate in the PDF, and I get to keep the file forever. (unlike Amazon or Comixology where you don’t technically own the books, if their licensing contract expires with the publisher, Amazon can pull the books away from you at any time! Open PDFs rule).
As with all humble’s bundles, the deals are available for a limited time. The “Get Crafty” is only available until January 28, 2020.
