This Halloween Experience Goosebumps
October 16, 2015 By Selena Garrahan
Halloween is just around the corner. That means it’s time for trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, watching your favorite horror films and telling scary stories in the dark. Some of the scariest children’s horror stories today remain those from R.L Stine’s classic Goosebumps series. His best-selling books, such as ‘The Haunted Mask,’ are the perfect bone-chilling accompaniment for a gripping Halloween-themed sleepover, but prepare yourself to be spooked!
For the next few days, readers can pay what they want for the Goosebumps series (a $260 value) in an audiobook bundle created by Humble Bundle, while a portion of their payment can be donated to Worldreader.
‘‘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,’’ says Danielle Zacarias, our Director of Content. ‘‘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 a great honor to be attached to a bundle with his name on it.’’
This year, Humble Bundle customers have raised over $100,000 for Worldreader. Thanks to Humble Bundle and their community of readers, we’re able to get more children hooked on reading and are now in the process of sending 50 e-readers (loaded with 100 e-books on each one) to a school in Nima, Ghana, serving some of Nima’s poorest girls. That’s 5,000 new books and a library full of new educational and learning opportunities.
