Humble Bundle  
Humble Bundle has an amazing book available in its current bundle so I must let everyone know!

I'm not sure how many people know about this site, but this is a selection of e-books where you pay-what-you-can to get DRM-free copies, and your money goes to a nonprofit/charity. You actually get to choose what portion of your payment goes to the author and what portion goes to one or more of the following nonprofits: Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play, and Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.

It was brought to my attention by my favorite author, Lois McMaster Bujold, who has a book in the current bundle, Shards of Honor. Regarding this novel, it alone is worth the price of the bundle. It is absolutely one of my favorite books. Shards is a sci-fi thriller space-opera defined for me by its intricate political maneuverings and strong female protagonist. A real favorite of mine-- I cannot stress that enough!

Definitely some good things in that bundle in addition to Shards of Honor (which is awesome). Boneshaker is supposed to be good too, and I love the Last Unicorn. :)
