eBook Bundles in the Kindle Store

eBookNewser has been doing some digging in Amazon’s Kindle store and they’ve discovered over 200 “bundled” items. The book bundles range in price from .99 to $79.99.

Intrigued, I decided to check this out for myself. The bestselling bundle is Gena Showalter’s “Lords of the Underworld Bundle,” which includes the first four books in that series for $9.99. By my calculations, those four ebooks would run you $19.60 if you bought them separately, so that seems like a pretty good deal.

I browsed through about 100 bundles, and most seemed to be romance, which makes sense. People used to buying cheap paperback romances can now get them for an even lower price on their Kindles. Plus, as an added bonus, you don’t have to worry about the half naked man on the book cover when you’re reading in the coffee shop because, for all anyone knows, you could be reading Tolstoy.

I really like the idea of bundled ebooks and I’m hoping Amazon will add more authors that I read. I would be all over bundles of J. D. Robb’s In Death/Eve Dallas series. A few years ago, I read Charlaine Harris’ entire backlist (the Aurora Teagarden, Lily Bard, and Harper Connelly series) on my Kindle, and it would have been awesome to buy them as bundles.

So what do you think of ebook bundles? Are there any books you would like to see offered as a bundle?
