Is it possible to add Epub files as personal books or are there any other ways for Epub files to be recognised by Logos?

This has been discussed at length before and the short answer is yes, but it is not easy. Logos cannot natively read epubs. I wish they would add this feature, but for various reasons it is not on the table. You can convert your epub to Docx format, tag it manually and then import it into Personal books. In some cases there could be copyright issues. Search the forums, there is some tutorials on how to do it.

You'd need to convert the ePub file to MS Word .docx format (converter programs such as Calibre do that for you).

Thanks, Sarel - I tried to search the forums and the forum software picked up pre-pub first so it was going to be a big effort.  Will try your solution
