Please put all the new "audio" resources in a separate listing such as "PrePublication Audio" its annoying having to scroll through so many new offering.

I agree with this suggestion but I think Logos wants to profile them more and may be concerned that they might get lost in another category.

there is a reason bread is in the bread isle and meat is in the meat isle at the grocery store. If I had to wade through cases of Coke in order to get to the bread, I would stop shopping there.

I would like to see a check box on the subscriptions page to opt out of these audio emails. Buying them direct seems to be cheaper/ easier to use and I can't see what it adds to Logos.

Yes

I agree, create a new category.

The problem with NOT creating a new category is that it is much more difficult to scroll down and find new pre pubs that are actual books.  Instead we have to wade through a huge amount of audios.  I would be more incline to find a book if the audios were separated out.  And I would probably be more inclined to find an audio book with these titles separated out as well since the audios are not mixed in with other resources.

So how would you like to see Logos handle those resources that re both text and audio?

Should there be 3 categories: audio only, text only, audio+text?

Or ...

Duh, how does Amazon handle kindle books, paperbacks and audiobooks with the same title?

Why not include a filter such as those for ship date, etc, in order to show only audio resources?  That way you can have your cake and eat it too.

There already is a filter for Audiobooks.

The problem with Logos' filters is that you can filter to see only xyz, but you can't filter to see everything but xyz. We need checkboxes in front of everything in the left column, so that we can uncheck those categories we don't want to see (Spanish, Audiobooks...)

I don't see an issue.  This is a temporary influx. After this they will likely trickle in like all other resources that we wade through, ignoring those we aren't interested in to find those we want. How is this different?

The duration of the influx is not the issue. The size of the influx is. When Vyrso was launched we did not have to suffer everything being mixed in with Logos Pre-Pubs.  

How would it look to add 300 audio books to the Pre-Pubs?

That is not true, there's no such a thing as an "Audio Filter" in the product or prepub section.  Take a look:

That could be an option, though I think by adding an "Audio Books" option on the drop down menu of the products page and pre-pub page would make it easier.  And yes, add a Spanish titles only too since they're mixed with the English ones on the English part of the website.  I know that's not the case in the Spanish website.  Spanish product page and prepub page only shows Spanish.

Anyway, it sure looks cluttered on the prepub section now. Confused

The filter isn't in the drop down menu, it is in the "Product Type" section on the left of the screen

Got it! Boy that doesn't look so easy to find and the count doesn't seem accurate either.  They should add that to the drop down menu too or find a better way; which they might, since Mr. Bob said they were working on the website somewhere in one of the recent posts.

The dropdown doesn't remove anything. It just sorts thing in the order you want.
