$3.54 per resource!

On my account orders page, I noticed the rather embarrassing total dollar amount I've invested in Logos resources over the past 12 years or so.  Dividing by the number of resources in my library, I was surprised to discover that I've spent more than $3.54 per resource!

How about you?

Don't feel so badly. I've paid an average of $7.74 per resource. Actually it's probably somewhat less than that because of all the hidden ones. But still probably about twice what you paid.

Well I guess the bright side is that a majority of my resources are worth 10x that amount...

I am about 3 years with Logos.  And my average amount is the same as yours.

Still cheaper than Kindle, you know.

Your post does reveal how successful Logos is - to make people purchase thousands of e-books at 1/3 of Kindle price.  But thousands of books!

Yup, I've spent about 615 times as much on Logos books as I have on Kindle books. Just goes to show you...

On my orders page there is a dollar total for prepubs but there no longer is a total for all orders, and there used to be!  I tried not to look at it Huh?  maybe they are trying to be kind and not scare me with the total any more...Crying

Dominick, I don't mean to scare you, but there are four sections of your Orders page: Open Pre-Pub Orders, Open Community Pricing Bids, Order History, and Downloadable Libronix Files. When you scroll to the bottom of the page, you won't see a total. Try scrolling to the bottom of the section titled Order History, and that's where you'll see the total. I agree, it's pretty scary. Maybe that's why they hid it so well.

$2.58 - I have portfolio and lots of journals and other additional resources. These were all purchased through the academic discount. (It almost makes tuition worth it Big Smile) I'm surprised that it's that low, but I'm very happy with that.

I've purchased so many Thomas Nelson products ---in the hundreds of books--that I really can't figure my total cost.

It's there, thanks Rosie I was going to the bottom.  That's a scary number indeed!  But I figure, if I didn't spend the money on my faith, and indirectly helping others with their faith through my support of Logos, I would have wasted money in other ways.

BTW, I have a very large library, and my number is $6.54 per resource.  I have bought some third party resources over the years so this is probably a little on the low side, but definitely not more than 5% or so I suspect...

Looks like about $2.16 per resource.

$8.41 after subtracting out the papyri/targums. Suspect avg-cost has much to do with the book-mix, since most of mine were on some form of pre-pub / sale.

I can't tell... it only includes resources I've bought through Logos. I had too many other purchases from Nelson, etc., that didn't seem to be reflected for the number to be meaningful.

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Estimate $ 1.79 per resource (including 42 videos) average (library upgrades to platinum plus community pricing plus pre-pubs).

Thankful for Logos (word became flesh), Logos Bible Software, and Logos forums.  Rejoicing per Paul's imperative commands in Philippians 4:4-8
