Around about a year ago, authors started banding together and releasing multi-author ebook bundles together. They priced them super cheap, usually $0.99 for six or more books. It’s a great deal, incredibly hard to pass up, and several of these bundles have gone on to hit the big lists: New York Times, USA Today, Amazon’s lists, etc.
I’ve bought several of these bundles. They were $0.99 so why not? I even thumbed through them on my Kindle.
But that’s all I did: thumbed through them. I haven’t read one full length book from a bundle.
I’m not entirely sure why. Usually, I bought bundles from authors I didn’t know. I was testing them out. Maybe I didn’t stick with the books for more than a page or two because I was extremely picky, and I had five or more other books from the other authors that I might have liked better?
I’m wondering if I’m a rare case. If most people who buy bundles usually read one or more books. Maybe they find their new favorite authors from the bundle?
