This commentary collection of Corinthians will most likely reach 100% before Wednesday and if so will close on Friday.  After they reach production the prices go up significantly.  Don't miss out.

This collection on Ephesians is also very close.

So why can't we do this with the Classic Commentaries and Studies on Revelation? Bid $50, or if you've already bid $160, lower your bid to $50, and that bump at $50 will grow to be higher than the bump at $160, which is what it will take to get the momentum going on this one. It's been sitting at $160 for ages! Nobody else wants to bid that high, and they won't even bid $50 because they figure "what's the point -- I won't get it anyway"? So let's move this one to $50, and get it through. Who knows, it might even go down to $40 before it gets into pre-pub.

Rosie, that's not right. A bid at $160 IS ALREADY a bid at $50. The reason the bump is higher at $160 is because the $160 bid covers over 3 times the cost of the resource as a bid at $50, so the progress to 100% of cost is faster (requires less bids) at $160.  There is ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT by changing a $160 bid to $50.

Dominick, the only reservation I've got is if too many people bid $160 and it crosses the line there.  I'm afraid I would then be priced out of the collection by far less people than at $50.  Then again I guess they did win fair and square.

Paul, I can't remember a time when a CP went that high, so it's doubtful that will happen. Anything is possible though.

But if people at $160 lower to $50, the $160 peak will lower until it is lower than the $50 peak, which in turn might create more momentum on this (assuming that the higher peak is frightening people off).

You're right that it won't raise the $50 bump at all, but it will lower the $160 bump (not as many people willing to pay $160 so less of the cost will be covered), which at its current height is intimidating more people from bidding at all. Lowering the $160 bump in relation to the $50 bump has the same psychological effect as raising the $50 bump in relation to the $160 bump. While it won't make the current bump at $50 any closer to crossing the line, it will give more people the courage to bid $50 which I think will actually make it rise up faster in the future, and that's the price point we prefer this to go over the top at, not $160. It's OK if it takes more people to get it there.

Classic Commentaries and Studies on Luke is close to going over the top now, too. It's looking like it will cross the line at $50, but the slope to $40 from there is shallow, so maybe we can push it down to $40 before it goes into pre-pub.

Rosie is correct.  Changing your bid to $50 from $160 will not increase the $50 level, but it will decrease the $160 level so that the $50 level will exceed the $160 level.  It is the fact that the prevailing bid is $160 which prevents others from bidding.  If that level becomes lower than the $50 level then others might feel inclined to bid.
