In one of the early modules - Bibiography to Personal Book, Mo gives instructions to save the Bibliography as a docx file from the print/export command. I'm on a Mac and this option is not available. Since everything seems to build from this first document, this seems like a pretty huge issue. Is there a Mac version of the course, or a work around?

I just watched that video.  He mentions in another video that you don't need to convert it to a docx file if you don't have Word.  You can simply drag the bibliography to the toolbar.  His point with the docx file was to create a personal book with the bibliography.

It took a bit of googling and experimenting, but i finally figured out that you can save the bibliography to a text file, then open the text file in Pages and then export it from pages into a docx file and then use that file to make the personal book. It certainly is a roundabout way to get there, but it does work. Thank you google.

And, yes, the very next video says you can get by just using the bibliography file, but Mo is correct that making it into a personal book makes the trek through all the books in your library at 3 minutes a day much easier because it remembers where you stopped.

Something interesting I noted while creating the PB is my bibliography was well over 600 pages long and the PB interface imported it all.  I thought it was limited to the first 100 pages only.  Do you know if that restriction is now a thing of the past?
