I should agree with those who say "none" until I pay off what I already owe.  However, since you ask...

I would like the Hebrew Audio Bible in 2013, which we have been waiting for since 2010.

I would also like to get the Word Biblical Commentaries (Vol. 32 and 37a) that have been on Pre-pub for over a year.

I would like more (like everything) by Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

I would love the Bicentennial Edition (Oxford edition) of the Works of John Wesley, which is the most scholarly and critical edition.

I also agree with the following suggestions:  Yes

Gordon Jones:

The New Interpreter's Bible (http://www.logos.com/product/8803/new-interpreters-bible)

> The remaining two IVP 'Black' dictionaries to complete the collection i.e. Wisdom and Prophets

And I agree with those who call for Judges in the NICOT.  Yes

Don't want much, do we?

Also, Waltke's Micah Commentary, and of course the OT/NT Library Commentaries, Apollos OT series, Christopher Wright's books, Bible Speaks Today OT series.

Just curious, but has anyone heard if Zondervan might be doing an OT companion series for the ZEC? (I haven't, but would LOVE this!). I did hear that Baker would round out the rest of the OT in their Baker Commentary on the Wisdom & Psalms series, though I haven't seen any hard evidence.

As you can see commentaries are my favorite Logos offering!

If you mean the Hebrew Audio Pronunciations, it's been on prepub since 2007, and I hope you're aware it is not a Hebrew Audio Bible.

Dreaming of a Hebrew Audio Old Testament; would like to listen to Hebrew speaker with tonal inflections.

I too am wondering what the final product will be like. I hope that it is not stilted like some computers readers are. Do you think it will be exactly like the Greek addin? Do you think that it will be able to actually read passages or simply give the pronunciation of a single word. I'm guessing the latter although I'd love both.

From description at => http://www.logos.com/product/5960/hebrew-audio-pronunciations likewise anticipating lemma pronunciation plus wondering about prefixes and suffixes.

Greek lexicons have lemma entries with prepositions attached while Hebrew/Araaic lexicons tend to split a Hebrew word into components so preposition and root have different lemma entities.  Personally a bit puzzled by Hebrew/Aramaic lexicons lacking lemmas with preposition attached since preposition affects range of meaning for a lemma.

Well, of course that is what I mean.  I simply wrote from memory.  And my "we have been waiting for since 2010" should have been "I have been waiting for since 2010", as that is how long I personally have had it ordered. 

I am used to the Greek Audio New Testament, which does function as an audio Bible.  I find that helpful when memorizing verses in the Greek New Testament.  It would be nice if the Hebrew Audio pronunciations could be similar.  But I will be glad to get whatever it turns out to be.

The Hebrew Audio Pronunciations will be similar to the Greek Audio Pronunciations, i e it will work from the Tools menu and a couple of other places, and pronounce lemmas. The Greek Audio New Testament is a completely different type of resource, and works via the Read Aloud command. I presume Logos will one day produce a Hebrew Audio Old Testament as well, but this is not it. That's why I hoped you were aware this is not a Hebrew Audio Bible

I thought it would be interesting to learn what books and collections that other Logos users would like to see available in Logos.

I would like to have any and all books by Don DeWelt.  I would also like to see the College Press Bible Study Textbook Series moved from Pre-Pub to Community Pricing to jump start its progress. At the rate it is going it  will outlast Barnes' Notes for being the slowest Pre-Pub.

Randal M Lane:

Paying for Logos 5 and the Works of Jonathan Edwards will thoroughly dwindle my Logos budget in 2013, so I'll be fine if no new major large projects come forth in the next year. I will be hard pressed to pass up some of the other mentioned works, especially Bailey. I also expect large volumes by Beale and Hoehner to become available seprately once the collections they are in are complete. Add those to a long list of prepub and CP items and I think I'll be hard pressed or spare Loos $ in 2013. 

Oh, and I fully expect a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 inch tablet o be announced in January, my techie toy for the first half of 2013. Another couple hundred $!!

But, if we have to supply some wish items, I most want a few lagging CP listings o get into production:

Doddridge

Hodge

Princeton Review

Bampon Lectures

Classics Psalms Commentaries

Gill

It would also be great to start the year out with the completion of the 5 volume Hastings Dictionary

Oops, I almost forgot about the most anticipated publication for the entire year, due in Q2 or Q3, the one I don't doubt a high percentage of us are eagerly awaiting:

Part four of N. T. Wright's series Christian Origins and the Question of God, entitled Paul and the Faithfulness of God (3 volumes).

It would be really, really, really, really nice to have that in Logos on the same day dead tree version becomes available. I want that so much I doubt I'll have much patience to wait for a Logos version very long. let's set a precedence for Logos digital version availability that coincides with print release - Amazon does so most of the time with the Kindle, so it does happen.

Personally, I would like them to just ax this product. It should never see the light of day.

If you want to hear the OT read aloud, you can find a rabbi reading it if you do a search online. I have the whole spoken OT on my computer...I almost never listen to it unless I have a specific rare pronunciation concern. Thing is, I am never sure I can trust the rabbi's pronunciation...many Jews don't know how to pronounce Hebrew. This isn't a huge surprise, there are many dialects with significant differences due to geographic and cultural impact during the diaspora. I bought a Hebrew vocabulary CD and the pronunciation of many words by the academician with the advanced-degrees is absolutely dreadful.

I have advocated for a Biblical pronunciation (to the extent this is possible). One thing is well-known (in certain circles), and that is that Modern Hebrew is significantly different in pronunciation of nearly half of the Hebrew alphabet. Nearly all grammars are based on Modern Hebrew. This is where the double-think comes in. People always fire the "what does it matter what original Hebrew pronunciation sounded like?" To which I respond, "Well, if it doesn't matter, then why do you care? Why ask for a Hebrew pronunciation guide if it is irrelevant what it sounds like!!! Just make up your own stinking sounds."

But please don't give people a misleading "guide" that will just entrench mistakes. Honestly, no one really needs that.

I'm so tempted to ask "why???"

Don't answer that...
