Video games have a long and storied history, and now you can read about a big chunk of it while also helping out charity. The StoryBundle Gaming Books bundle is here — and your purchase will help out a good cause, too!
This particular bundle features ten great reads all in one convenient package. Purchases will be able to read these books on pretty much any tablet, smart device, or PC, so you don't have to worry about having any kind of silly proprietary device.
If you do decide to make a purchase, you'll also have the option to donate 10% of whatever you pay to Doctors Without Borders. This organization sends medical staff around the world to help out people in need, especially in the places where local medicine isn't all that great.
