I just noticed yesterday that my Open Pre-Pub list can all be seen on one page without the use of the scroll bar. I can't remember the last time it was like that but I think a major reason for this is that there are a lot less Pre-Pubs coming through Community Pricing these days.

How long is your list? Is it any different than it used to be?

After the massive pre pub release marathon of the past 4 weeks, which had a none the less massive impact on my wallet, there's only 4 items left on mine...

The Sherlock Holmes Collection (8 vols.)
The Reformed Roots of the English New Testament: The Influence of Theodore Beza on the English New Testament
Twenty Questions That Shaped World Christian History

I'm still waiting for basic resources such as the Grail Psalms ... and this omits the gathering interest group ...

Mine is still very long, but shorter than it's been in many years.

1 shipping, 7 under contract, 17 gathering interest (some of those have been there for years). Yes, I do think it's less than it used to be, but I'm glad for my pocketbook's sake that they're slowing down. Smile

Mine has dwindled substantially since just last year.

Lucky 13 items are on my list. Very selective on prepubs now. No use rushing into buying them all.

I have nothing now.  Logos seem very slow in bringing out new volumes in major commentary series that other software companies have had for some time.

Zero, Zero , and Zero. After I received the English Bible collection, I have decided to try a radical concept. ... Attempt to read some of what I already have.

I had zero at one point.  But it's back to 4 now:

Nov 4, 2016      Ships 1/11/2017     The Sherlock Holmes Collection (8 vols.)     $16.00
Nov 14, 2016     Under Contract      Atlas of Christian History    $14.99
Dec 16, 2016     Under Contract      Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Works: Reader's Editions (4 vols.)     $29.99
Today            Gathering Interest  Aquinas' Summa Theologiae     $9.99

I am sticking with the cheaper stuff now.

EDIT: One reason my pre-pub list is shorter (other than my desire to buy less) is that the community pricing offerings that I've bid on have all stalled out, which has been a significant feeder of my pre-pub list in the past.  Looking at the 25 community pricing bids I have out has prompted me to reconsider some of them.

Down to 4 items (and will be three later this month).

There are two reasons:

a) Community pricing has stalled - I have bids on lots, but there is little progress;

b) Lack of recommendations in the forums about must-buy resources on Pre-pub - I rarely look at Pre-pub and don't allow mailings, but do take note if well-respected forum-people rave about something that looks interesting.

2 Shipping (one this month, one in April, which I think is less than usual, and spread out more into the future - Faithlife shipped a lot recently)

11 Under contract (including Aquinas commentary on Isaiah, which I signed up for in 2012!)

25 Gathering interest

I find that there are less former CP resources on the list (which is a good thing, as it says Faithlife actually produced & delivered them) and the individual price of the items is smaller than it used to be (the median of my list is at 15.99 or so) - I had to delete some more expensive ones in recent times (such as Carson's sermons, which shipped in the meantime) due to budget restrictions.

Down to half a dozen items.

Seems Logos is concentrating on developing resources for other languages -- a good thing.

That plus I have much of what I need for the rest of my life.

Trending shorter, partly because none of my CP bids are going over.
