Chris Roberts:

~$3.47

C'mon now, they didn't pay you to take the resources.  Confess.

EDIT:  Oops !  I thought that was a negative rather than approximate.  Perhaps I need to enlarge the text size.

In mathematics an equal symbol (=) with wavy lines like a tilde (~) means "approximate" since there's no corresponding ASCI character a simple tilde often suffices for approximitly.

Including 3rd party resources from Nelson, etc, I'm at $2.62 a resource.  It's worth it.

My resources average $3.22. If they were all NICOT/NT level that would be a real bargain.

$3.05  I'm quite encouraged by that!  It was truly well spent.

I'm coming in at around $2.18 per resource...that will probably change some in the next few weeks and I'm not sure which way it will go. I'm hoping down, but if it raises a little.

I'm not sure my computations are correct since I had to count a large number of hidden resources and may have lost count, but I think it's around $6.40.

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.

Same here. I calculate $1.97/resource, but considering resources purchased from beyond the Logos website, I'm sure it is closer to $3+

Mine comes in at $6.14, assuming my estimate that I bought 75% of my library directly from Logos is correct. It's higher than most of you here, despite my academic discount. I guess that's because I tend to purchase newer (hence more expensive) resources, and some big ticket items have bumped up the average significantly. The recent Zondervan bundle 2 came in at $19.15, AYC at $20.11, and NICOT/NICNT at $24.90. And vol. 5 of the Encyclopedia of Christianity was $69.95 for a single resource!

Too bad the total sum isn't equally encouraging... And too bad that means that from now on the average can only go up...

$1.87 per resource. Worth every penny! Kudos to my Logos sales rep, Jim-Ray!

Some people just don't know how to shop. Always paying too much. ;)

I can't estimate how much I spent from other sources so have no idea what my final investment or cost is. Probably averages less than $5.00 a volume.

$4.60 ah, can I have a do over? Nay, I would probably get closer to Mark's

I've spent over $12,000 on Logos with over $4,000 in the queue.  Sigh !  Like Mike Barnes I tend to buy newer works so it's only going to increase my average price.

Looking at my orders page => purchases shipping soon or under contract average $ 6.11 per resource - know overall average heading up.

Jason Hauser:
3. My last frustration relates to bundled packages. Last Christmas Logos promoted all kinds of deals of bundled books where the more you bought the more you saved per book. However, there was a lot of overlap with what was in the bundles and what you already have. So while it's still a good deal I now am really hesitant to buy a single work by any author because later a bundled set will come out and I can't take advantage of the savings without eating the individual titles I've already bought and factoring them into the savings for the new bundle.

I can appreciate that this would be problematic since I've run into the same situation.  I looked at the collection and saw that those I wanted I already had but those I didn't have I didn't want so I played Winnie the Pooh and went "Think, think, think" until I finally decided, "I know, I won't buy it!"
