[Expired] Baen December Bundle - 6 books/$18

Just a reminder that if you want to buy Baen's December 2013 Bundle, six SF/Fantasy books for $18, you only have SIX days left to buy it. The bundle will come off sale sometime on the 15th November, and the full bundle can be downloaded by those who've bought it sometime from the 16th onwards.

The total cost of the individual books is about $57. So if you don't already have any of the books in the bundle, that's a discount of 68%!

The books in the December bundle are:

Mars, Inc. by Ben Bova
1920: America's Great War by Robert Conroy
Man-Kzin Wars XIV created by Larry Niven
Dragon's Teeth by Mercedes Lackey
Tiger by the Tail by John Ringo and Ryan Sear
Night and Demons by David Drake

I find the titling of these monthly threads to be confusing.

It isn't '68% off Baen's December 2013 Bundle', the bundle price hasn't changed.

I agree it is 68% off the list price of the books in the bundle, however.

A fair point. What wording would you suggest?

Perhaps something like "Save 68% off individual list prices with Baen's X Bundle"? Or if you want to make the amount of the discount more obvious, "6 books for $18 in Baen's X Bundle (regularly/individually $57)", adjusting the numbers as needed for each month.

I'll also note that for people who read Mercedes Lackey, her book in this bundle is not just an omnibus of her two former Baen Free Library story collections, but also adds several new previously-uncollected shorts (something that's not obvious from the catalogue blurb).

Baen December Bundle - 6 days left - 6 books/$18
Baen December Bundle - Expires Soon - 6 books/$18
Baen December Bundle - Expires Soon - 6 books/$18 (68% savings)

The main thrust of the thread is that the bundle is expiring soon...

I like the third one. Done.

Ah - bit it's a bit long on the front page. The second one will do.

I think they're good ideas and get the point across.
