Fyi, some of the books that didn't make it through pre-pub are heavily discounted. I know some of you were passionate to see certain titles become available in Logos. Perhaps this might temper the disappointment.

Wow, that's quite a phenomenal sale. I would buy a ton of them, but none of the books I have looked at contain real page numbers, making referencing nearly impossible, and practically useless for research.

Just a quick followup: 3 out of 4 of Wright's Christian Origins Volumes do have page numbers. I also found more than a dozen books I would buy,  but alas, only a couple other books with page numbers. One reason to get them in Logos- nevertheless, fantastic deals Smile

For research with electronic resources, I find myself verifying page numbers in a hard copy whenever possible.  Even for Logos, where it can be tough to see which specific page number I'm citing from a page range.

I do most of my work with the ebook, then glance at the library copy near the end to make sure my citations are accurate. 

As for this sale, I agree that it looks great. I'd love for the publisher to extend this outside of Kindle, but that doesn't seem likely.

Yes, good strategy. Yeah, too bad the sale doesn't extend to Google eve, as they at least include original page scans so you can easily verify page numbers. Of course, none of these are as helpful as having the title in Logos with all the reference links etc.

Barnes & Noble Nook versions are on the sale. I am not familiar with those though.
