These looked to have dropped into my library at this point in time, though the member's webpage is yet to be updated:

From what I can tell it is the following Bloomsbury Libraries

https://www.logos.com/product/44912/bloomsbury-academic-religious-studies-collection 

https://www.logos.com/product/42610/bloomsbury-academic-greek-tragedy-bundle 

 Let the debate over the value of these and whether we should be able to opt out of the download continue....

The bundle dump is starting to get tiring.

I don't want to opt out; I want better books. High-quality preview resources were one of the main reasons I re-upped my Logos Now subscription. But I haven't even looked at any of them in several months as they're totally outside of my areas of interest.

FaithLife, please bring back the carefully curated selection of preview resources appealing to a wide range of interests. The bundle dump has been a big disappointment and is yet another sign of your ongoing slump in quality and attention to detail.

ETA: But thanks, Doc, for the links.

Agree with your comments Sean. I'd be surprised if these Bloomsbury titles are of interest to the average Logos Now subscriber. For two of us at least they have no interest, particularly the Greek Tragedies set. The comparative religion might be interesting to a slightly wider audience.

Well I'm the one on the other Side I like hem...but I also would prefer single Books instead of Bundles

Is Logos closed tomorrow? Is that why they released the January resources? 

Shalom, in Christ, Keith. Check out my music www.soundcloud.com/kpang808

Beyond tiring. It's like they're no longer putting any thought into it. I'm thankful for the ability to hide them.

They're probably closed most Sundays Wink

Didn't they used to include a mobile ed course in the preview? What happened to that?

Likely tomorrow AND Monday. Many organizations take the day after the holiday off when the holiday is on the weekend. 

EDIT: corrected bonehead mistake. Smile

These also seem to be the Verbum Now preview resources.

I'm fine with them. When you take a few sets of preview resources over different months and look at them together, you do get a real variety.

Since the holiday is on a Sunday, they would probably only take Monday off (unless 31 December is a holiday as well over there).

They do but it is not changed regularly, there has never to my knowledge been a commitment to how often it will change, see the Logos Now member page for details of currently made available course.

I am mystified and dismayed that such silly useless books are part of the download.

Greek Tragedy?????

....Sean is spot on.  Logos is pandering to an unusual subset of people imho.

That subset may well think the same of your subset. Stick out tongue

We have both Monday and Tuesday off (just like we did for Christmas). I don't get the reasoning for the Tuesday off but I'm not complaining Smile

Let's say I wanted to purchase a permanent license to either of these bundles.  Is there a discount?  How does it work?

I know some places like to give New Year's Eve off as a holiday (in whole or part), and since it's a Saturday this year, that could be it.

There will be a discount, come February, unless someone at FL forgets, in which case it will happen shortly after someone complains on the forums.
