San Francisco, CA (August 17, 2016)—The last time geek book publisher No Starch Press teamed up with Humble Bundle, they sold a record-breaking $1 million of ebooks in just two weeks, making it the second highest-grossing ebook bundle in history. Today, they’re joining forces again to deliver the Humble Book Bundle: The Joy of Coding, a pay-what-you-want collection of distinct programming titles.
“We’ve built a bundle of books that we hope will be fun for people who love to code—that’s why we’re calling it The Joy of Coding,” says Bill Pollock, founder of No Starch Press. “These are many of the books that I’ve loved over the years—some recent and some not-so-recent—and they promise to make programming fun again.”
Readers can pay any amount to receive:
Readers who pay more than the average also get:

The Joy of Coding bundle benefits the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), an organization dedicated to defending civil liberties online. The EFF defends free speech, fights illegal surveillance, advocates for users and innovators, and supports freedom-enhancing technologies. The three previous No Starch Press bundles have raised nearly $300,000 for the EFF.
Like all Humble Bundle promotions, customers choose how much of their money goes to the publisher, Humble Bundle, and the benefiting nonprofit. The Humble Book Bundle: The Joy of Coding runs for two weeks and ends on August 31st.
