Humble Bundle has GIMP ebooks at $1+ and $8+ tiers

We haven’t visited Humble Bundle in a while but since one of the offers is of photography interest, the time is right to write about them right now! All the offers mentioned below are “Pay What You Want” and start at $1. If you pay that, you get the first collection of ebooks. Paying more at the designated tiers on each offer gets you additional ebooks. But for the first tier, $1 is enough! All these are DRM-free ebooks and they are typically offered in multiple formats (eg ePUB, PDF, etc).

The Linux and BSD bookshelf at the $1 tier includes, among others, the ebook “The Artist’s Guide to GIMP: Creative Techniques for Photographers, Artists and Designers”. Six more ebooks are there including Audacity, Firewalls, Debugging, etc… GIMP has another ebook in the $8+ tier, the “The Book of GIMP”, along with “The Book of Inkscape” (graphics editor), Blender, OpenBSD [the BSD vs Linux war is as ancient as time itself?] and more… The $15+ tier goes more hardcore Linux, no GIMP at that tier.

If you like food and wine and/or food-n-wine photography, there’s a Food and Wine bundle. No how-to-photograph-food ebooks however 🙂

Then there’s a confusing Music and Design bundle that has ebooks on how to learn music instruments and ebooks on design in general (not of music instruments)…

But if you want more design, they got you covered too with the Designers bundle that also has some money/marketing ebooks for the creatives. The $15+ tier has a “color combinations” ebook along with a scary sounding title “Self-Portrait As Your Traitor” by Debbie Millman… IF you want spoilers on what this ebook is about you can find them in the Amazon description [it’s probably not what you guessed?]

Each one of the bundles has its own expiration date. Sometimes they get extended, sometimes they don’t, so don’t delay if you see something you like. They take PayPal, you don’t have to give them a credit card. They also take AliPay.

20% off with Barnes & Noble coupon

Barnes and Noble is not going to let Amazon run “unopposed” during Prime Day, so the Barnes & Noble website is offering 20% off your order using coupon code JUNEREADS until 7/16/19. The usual restrictions and exclusions apply. There is no minimum order amount for this promotion…

For bargain book ideas [think of the B&M bookstore “clearance section” with those giant colorful coffee table books], check their Outlet page and if you don’t feel like digging into the various categories, check their Photography Section

Monday (fiction eBook with Photographer): Lightkeepers for $2

10% off 700+ B&N Photography Outlet books

One of the popular things to do back when there were big-chain bookstores on many street corners was to go inside and browser around the Clearance section where you could find giant photography books at a bargain price.

You can sort of do this online by heading to the B&N Outlet page and more specifically digging down to the Photography Section where they have 700+ books on clearance/sale there. You can further drill down on them using the categories (and then the sub-categories) on the left hand side of their page…

50% off hardcovers at B&N

Amazon’s favorability ratings among consumers, for a variety of reasons, are slowly dropping, plus the number of “real world” bookstores continues to decrease, so if your Amazon honeymoon is over, Barnes and Noble is having a 50% off hardcover books sale featuring a variety of titles. You can use the various sub-categories to look for items of interest. Due to time constraints I cannot go through the listings looking for camera/photo-related books, so YMMV…
