Humble Bundle Model Coming to eBooks

Would you buy indie eBooks in bundled together if you could help set the price for the digital books?

Video game sites like The Humble Bundle have changed the way people buy games for their mobile devices–bundling a few games by independent artists in a single download and allowing gamers to pay what they want for the bundle. Watch the video embedded above to see how it works.

The new StoryBundle site promises to perform the same function with eBooks. Follow this link to sign up for updates–what do you think of this bookselling model?

Check it out: “We give you a handful of ebooks (about five or so) for a low price that you choose, all DRM-free, delivered to your ereader. We only choose quality independent authors so you can be sure what you’re buying is good. Plus, you decide how much these books are worth. Great reads delivered cheaply without killing a single tree? That’s something everybody can feel good about.”
