Problems Only We Know: Deal Bundles

I'm starting a new feature called Problems Only We Know. This is feature is meant to be funny--sarcastic at times-- that highlights on a few topics here and there that can be annoying or small inconveniences that only readers/bloggers will understand.

For our first Problems Only We Know topic, let's talk deal bundles.

Let's say you own all of the books in a series except the last book. That last book is priced at $2.99 (or whatever the price, it really doesn't matter). And then the entire series goes on sale for $0.99 as a bundle. WHAT DO YOU DO?

On the one hand, buying the bundle at the reduced price is still cheaper than buying the last book by itself. On the other hand, since you already own the prior books in the series you're taking up space on your device. So which path do you take?

I guess it comes down to which is more important to you? Money or space. It doesn't really matter. You just have to choose one.

It's not like this is a huge deal. But it is an inconvenience. And this is definitely a problem that only readers know. What do you guys think? Let me know!
