Humble Book Bundle: Origami Yoda

It’s been quite some time since books were featured here. But after the Humble Audiobook Bundle: Smart Fun! Best of Public Radio, even more Star Wars-related things can be found in the Humble Book Bundle: Origami Yoda.

First off, I’m not a big fan of reading books on the PC, tablet or other digital format. But at least it gives a good idea of what most of them are about without paying too much. Granted, there’s also the library or simply browsing through the local bookstore. But you get my drift.

The Humble Book Bundle: Origami Yoda comprises The Strange Case of Origami Yoda for a pay-what-you-want price, The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee, and Darth Paper Strikes Back for the average price (around 9 Dollars), while Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus and Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue unlocks for 15 Dollars or more.

Even if these are clearly aimed at children and the titles need some getting used to (although they’re pretty cool actually), these make for an interesting, alternative reading experience, as they’re interactive. What this means is that one will get various scribbles and notes as well as instructions how to fold paper in order to make the titular heroes/villains, a cool idea if ever there was one. The whole scribbling thing isn’t without reason either, because it perfectly captures daydreaming during class at school. Tom Angleberger’s fiction is suitable for school children, those who don’t like to read and even the child in all of us, seeing sixth grader Dwight’s papercraft come to life and talk.

The bundle is available for the next 8 days, so if you’re interested get it before the offer expires.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.

    If you want to read some more Star Wars related stuff you might wanna check out William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher. It’s quite funny 🙂

  2. ha ha these are fantastic. And even if you’re not into Origami, the names of the books alone are worth it..The Darth paper strikes back!?? Ha ha I love it. That made me snort my coffee since I was laughing so hard reading it. What a great idea though, particularly for kids. But I also know a few ‘kids’ (ie grown men in their 30s and 40s who grew up with Star Wars) who would totally be into these. I’ll pass the link along, thanks for sharing.
    I’m suddenly keen to give Origami a try 😀

      Great! I absolutely agree. Have to give these a read too and maybe reviews if I have the time. I think there are quite a few good children’s/kid’s books which are lots of fun even for adults.
      If you do some Origami, it would be great if you could write about it and share some pics ;). BTW, if you go on the official Origami Yoda website, you’ll find a “how to fold” instructions, and there are some read-made videos on YouTube. Might be fun :).
