With so many potential distractions these days—many of which are considerably more interactive than your average book—reading isn't as popular as it once was. Nonetheless, if you still enjoy the idea of spending a weekend on quality reading, here's something that will tickle your bibliophilic heart.
The Humble Bundle's latest "pay-whatever-you-feel-its-worth" multi-platform DRM-free collection is, unlike its previous bundles, a set of ebooks from some genuinely awesome, award-winning authors. For the low, low price of whatever the heck you want, you'll be able to pick up Cory Doctorow's Pirate Cinema, Paolo Bacigalupi's Pump Six, Lauren Buekes' Zoo City, Mercedes Lackey's Invasion, and Kelly Link's Stranger Things Happen and Magic for Beginners.
However, if you're willing to go the extra mile and pay more than the currently listed average, you'll also be able to take Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's Signal to Noise, as well as John Scalzi's Old's Man War home too.
In case you're not acquainted with how the Humble Bundle works, you can decide where your money will go. Feel like handing everything over to the authors? Go right ahead. Want to split it evenly between the authors, the charity foundations listed, and the Humble Bundle folk themselves? Your call.
Either way, if you're even remotely a fan of science-fiction and fantasy, you owe it to yourself to grab a copy of the collection before it goes away forever.
