Snug Nugget launches

A new web start-up has launched selling DRM-free e-book bundles and donating a portion of the proceeds to Book Aid International.
Snug Nugget offers a bundle of five e-books for a month, with the customers deciding how much they want to pay for the whole collection.
The books on offer now until 24th August appear to be by small US-based publishers or self-published authors, on the subject of science fiction, mystery or fantasy.
The website, which carries the strapline of “Buy Awesome E-books and help charity” says the books are DRM-free so customers can “read these novels on a wide range of devices from Kindles to iPads, PCs to Macs”. It tells purchasers they can “literally pay however much you feel the bundle is worth to you. If you were to buy these e-books retail it would cost you $27.66 (£17.73) but we want you to set the price.”
The company also says that 14.3% of all contributions made go to Book Aid International, which aims to increase access to books and supports literacy, education and development in sub-Saharan Africa.
The e-books on offer include: Wistril Compleat by Frank Tuttle, Mankind’s Worst Fear by David L Erickson, Smilodon by Alan Naye and Intrigue In Italics by Gayle Wigglesworth.
