I spoke with Kyle G today and he told me the below.  I just want to call him out here and say Thank You Kyle for helping us with these Vyrso issues... I (and I'm sure others) really, really do appreciate it.

"You might be interested in knowing we've done an analysis on Vyrso titles that have less toc-entries than we'd expect.  We're running a mass re-conversion on Monday that will update about 4000 titles."

Thank you Kyle. The TOC are important for making books in the faithlife ecosystem easy to use. Are there also plans to update the growing catalog of noet ebooks?

I am thinking of Berger's Social Construction of Reality as an example of a good book that has a hyperlinked table of contents in the front-matter, but no "left window" table of contents that would allow this feature to be accessed from anywhere in the book.

I certainly hope the Encyclopedia of Christian Education and the Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States are among those that they are going to do better TOCs for. This is absolutely useless as a TOC for an Encyclopedia. At $350 and $480, respectively, I would expect them to have decent TOCs.

Here, by contrast is the TOC of the ISBE, a Logos edition book which costs a mere $129.99. Now that's what an Encyclopedia TOC should look like.

I get it that Vyrso books are not manually processed. But if that's the case, then these two should not cost so much. This is way more than most Logos edition encyclopedias cost.

I confess that I wouldn't normally pay that much for a single volume digital book no matter how good I thought it might be (these two are $60 and $90 LESS on Kindle, respectively, BTW). But in addition to being a reference book addict, I'm secretly hoping that they'll do one more of George Kurian's encyclopedias that I requested a while back, the Encyclopedia of Christian Literature, because I have an entry in it, and I thought that by buying these two I might be indicating that there is an interest in such things. Silly me. I doubt anybody else has bought them or ever will. Those prices are truly outrageous. I blame the publisher just as much. The hardcover editions are priced like these Vyrso ones.

Wow...I'd never pay that for a Vyrso resource.

Thank you Kyle. I'm really looking forward to receiving the updated resources. Especially since most of my Vyrso library I got for free, or 0.99 per book, that's nothing I could take for granted. Customer support might be a bit bumpy at times, but at the end of the day it's usually still awesome!

Today is March 9th. Has this "massive update" been pushed out?

Also, is the Vyrso brand being abandoned in general?  In the past there were Vyrso freebies, near-freebies, deals, and exciting new books (nonfictions) from publishers almost weekly.  The site seems more quiet in the last few months...
