D&D 5E Are You Keeping Volo's Guide to Monsters and Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes?

The gift set is around 5000 out of all books on Amazon in preorder at the moment.

And it looks like it topped the PHB for a very short while. I didn’t manage to catch that, however.

So it’s already a selling really well. Far from the the best but still really good.

I wonder what WotC was expecting or planning?

That anything with the D&D name and logo would be a hit?
I'm guessing that having a few products that don't capture a big hunk of market share won't hurt them too much, but will also give them a different perspective aside from the online surveys, which aren't always backed up with spending.

interesting. I wonder how much of this is toe in the water and of what particular kind of water testing.

I’m still not 100% sure what the virtue of Mordenkainens Monsters of the Multiverse is if the monsters are all re-prints 🤔

Some attack spells in the stat block and missing alignment doesn’t really equal an improvement for me.
I personally don't find much value in MotM but that's because I already have Volo, which I bought both for the great narrative/fluff chapters and for the monsters list. If I now wanted more monsters I would rather buy Mordenkainen, which originally I didn't biu because I really didn't find the narrative/fluff part interesting at all.

But I can imagine that there are people who really dislike any narrative/fluff in books and only value stats, never bought VgtM or MotM because they thought half of them was useless, but would buy the combined stats of both.
