I had my order total under $1,000.  They offered the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew and now my total is again above $1,000!  How inconsiderate!  I'm beginning to once again "owe my soul to the company store."

How does that work? Isn't it still on Prepub?

It's most definitely still on prepub.  It has (maybe) slightly more than ¼ of the necessary subscriptions before it goes into publication.  It's just that a bit over 1 yr ago I had almost $4,500 in prepubs (with additional Comminity Pricing), but I'd gotten it down to under $1,000 on prepubs.  Fortunately, they began publishing books of the type Methods of Teaching Basketweaving which have no interest for me.  I'm afraid they're going back to more meaty references.

I picked that one up on the Christmas sale last year. Since then I've sold over $10,000 worth of baskets and made $2,500 teaching others. It's all gone to Logos resources. Cool

I'm actually not familiar with the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew. Have you ever used it? How would you rate it?

Just in case you change your mind and want to pursue basket-weaving here is a great website to get you started. http://basketmakers.org/topics/beginners/beginnersmenu.htm

IFYP (I feel your pain), only my threshhold is a lot lower than $1,000!

Blessings!

Grace & Peace,

By reputation only.  You could also try some teacher's college for basketweaving—they're big on that type of course.  They teach methods of teaching arithmetic, but not arithmetic, etc.

It's the momentum that has been broken, not the absolute amount.

I just added this to my pre-pub list so it is one step nearer publication. This is an expensive product but is really a superb deal. My colleague, John Hartley, has them in hardback and loves them (and I expect paid over 4 times the cost that Logos is offering the set for).

George, the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew has moved to "almost there" status. This is a good sign.
