Linux Geek Humble Book Bundle: $571 Worth Of Digital Books For $1 (Or More)

Linux Geek Humble Book Bundle

Update: The Bundle is now over. The Humble Bundle store has a cool Linux Geek e-book bundle on sale, which includes $571 worth of Linux-related digital books for which you can pay what you want (starting at $1).

There are multiple bundles available, depending on which books you need and how much you're willing to pay ($1, $8, $15 and $30 or more) and what books you need from each. The e-books bought through the Linux Geek Humble Bundle are DRM-free and available in multiple formats (PDF, ePUB and MOBI).

Humble Bundle started as a digital store for games for which the price was determined by the purchaser. A percent of the price goes to charity, while the rest is split between the developers. The store expanded, and now includes a section for e-books, audiobooks and digital comics.

The Linux Geek basic Humble Bundle includes the following e-books for the price of $1 (or more, depending on how much you want to pay):

  • Automate the Boring Stuff with Python: Practical Programming for Total Beginners
  • The Artist's Guide to GIMP: Creative Techniques for Photographers, Artists, and Designers
  • The Art of Debugging with GDB, DDD, and Eclipse
  • Perl One-Liners: 130 Programs That Get Things Done
  • The Book of GNS3: Build Virtual Network Labs Using Cisco, Juniper, and More

The $8 or more bundle includes:

  • The Book of Inkscape: The Definitive Guide to the Free Graphics Editor
  • The Book of GIMP: A Complete Guide to Nearly Everything
  • The Book of PF: A No-Nonsense Guide to the OpenBSD Firewall
  • The GNU Make Book
  • Blender Master Class: A Hands-On Guide to Modeling, Sculpting, Materials, and Rendering
  • Doing Math with Python: Use Programming to Explore Algebra, Statistics, Calculus, and More!

The $15 bundle unlocks the following e-books:

  • How Linux Works: What Every Superuser Should Know
  • Wicked Cool Shell Scripts: 101 Scripts for Linux, OS X, and UNIX Systems
  • Absolute OpenBSD: Unix for the Practical Paranoid
  • Arduino Project Handbook Vol. 1: 25 Practical Projects to Get You Started
  • Think Like a Programmer:An Introduction to Creative Problem Solving

And finally, for $30 (or more) you also get The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook.

Each bundle includes previous bundles, so for instance if you buy the $15 bundle, you'll also get the e-books included with the $8 and $1 bundles.

Part of the fee you pay for this Humble Bundle goes to charity. At the end of the page you can choose the project to donate to (click the "Choose where your money goes" under the total price). The Linux Geek Humble Book Bundle is available for purchase until the end of this month (July).
