With the Goosebumps movie coming out this weekend, it's no shock that there will be other Goosebumps related events happening. For the next few days, readers can buy the Goosebumps series, by R.L. Stine (a $260 value), just in time for Halloween, and donate a portion of their payment to Worldreader through Humble Bundle. Sounds pretty good to me! The Goosebumps series was so important to me when I was growing up, so it's nice to know that some new readers will be able to jump on board with this opportunity.
Danielle Zacarias, Director of Content spoke about the books by saying:
"The Goosebumps books are iconic. The series has sold over 350 million copies and now it's a movie. An entire generation of readers got hooked on reading in part because of R.L. Stine's ability to tell such addictive, funny, and scary stories. Worldreader wants to get people hooked on reading – first and foremost we want to help people become literate but once that happens we want them to love reading and continue reading. It's authors like R.L. Stine who help make that happen and it's a great honor to be attached to a bundle with his name on it."
