Welcome to the Devastator Funny Book Bundle 3: The Book Ultimatum, curated by The Devastator! We're excited to have them back to put together what's easily our funniest bundle of the year. How do they do it? Here's what they say:
At The Devastator, we have a different approach, which combines tactics used by improv theatres, TV show writers' rooms, and Chuck E. Cheese restaurants. The Chuck E. Cheese part has to do with all the frightening animatrons we bought off eBay and taught to sing Shakira songs. It has nothing to do with making books, but you know.
Throughout the year, we meet authors and cartoonists who want to work with us. If we like their work, we invite them to pitch us book ideas during our yearly submission period. The projects aren't picked solely by the publishers. Actually, the previous year's authors go through the submissions and help decide which ones get selected for next year's slate. That way, the books reflect the sensibility of many funny people, rather than one or two people. Neat!
Oh, and there's more! Click here to read the rest, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
