It's great to see so many Crossway pre-pubs. I'd love there to be a bundle that gathers all these pre-pubs into one, and offers a bigger discount.

There are so many great titles available in there. I have a bunch of them on Vyrso already so will be getting some nice free upgrades. I'm sure I'm going to be spending hundreds of dollars due to these prepubs. If there was a great bargain on these I could probably be seduced to buy them all

Not sure how FL could bundle pre-pubs as they can't promise what would be in the bundle until each group made it through pre-pub. FL could certainly count a mega-bundle bid against each smaller bundle, but what if some of the smaller bundles never make it? What does FL do?

The challenge right now is to get all of these through pre-pub. How easy that will be remains to be seen. So go bid.

They did the same with the Journal bundles last year, and I seem to remember the same with other publisher's bundles as well. The idea seems to be that PrePub in those cases decides not over "whether/if" a sub-bundle is produced, but only production priority, as a commitment is expressed to bring all of the individual parts into Logos at one point in time (provided the 'master' bundle makes it). Maybe PrePub in some cases is not determinative but only indicative of customer interest and gives a staged discount to early adopters comitters while the production is not in question.

 I would be interested in getting such a bundle.

Yes you are correct. Your observation about the purpose of that sort of pre-pub sounds correct. A decision seemed to have been made to do all the journals regardless of how the bundles performed. In fact I recall some bundles showed they were not at 100% pre-pub status but were produced.

If FL means to produce all these bundles, then, yes, a 'master ' bundle is easily handled. If not, I don't see how it can be done.

That said, it isn't a bad idea, even though I would not be a customer.
