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.
