I also agree that the reason for authors adding in their book into the bundle is gaining exposure.

I agree. I'm in no way implying that the books in the bundles are crap, which can certainly be a risk with self-published books. I'm relying on the curation process to avoid crap although I've not yet read any of the books I've picked up in bundles... Adding them to my TBR pile, for the moment.
