Has Faithlife ever given thought to including secular books in their offering?

Logos customers: would you buy secular books from Faithlife ?

Possibly...depends what it is. I thought this is what Noet was kind of for? I could be wrong.

Absolutely, that'd be great for research, including "hostile" books like "the God Dilusion".

I certainly buy secular books. Some are relevant to the studies I do in Logos, and some aren't.  I actually think the Logos/Noet/Vyrso distinction makes sense.  I look to Logos for books that would support Bible study or a seminary paper.  I look to Noet for classics.  I look to Vyrso for lighter fare. 

So for me, it's more a matter of my purpose for going to the "storefront" than it is whether a book is secular or not, or whether I agree with it or not.  It's handy to be able to approach Logos for the same sort of materials I might find in a church or seminary library, Noet for the kind of materials I might find in a general humanities library, and Vyrso for what I might find in a mall bookstore.

Actually, you once could buy it for about a day or so, before they pulled it from Noet...

If my memory is correct, there was once a website owned by Faithlife other than Logos, Noet, or Vyrso that offered secular books from a wide variety of publishers. The electronic books purchased from this site were compatible in Logos Bible Software. I do not remember the name of the site, and perhaps it has since been canceled?

I agree that it is valuable to also have secular books in the same library.

Noet has 2 different sites which seem to sell different books from each other.

There is https://noet.com/ which has a more academic product line, and the other is the one mentioned by Dale above https://ebooks.noet.com/ . This second one has a focus on general literature and is well worth a browse. The available categories  include: 

Genre Fiction (6874) History (2673) Social Science (2020) Education (1366) Biography (1255) Politics (1167) Young Adult Fiction (1161) Philosophy (860) Juvenile Fiction (787) Literary Criticism (714) Travel (694) Sports & Recreation (671) Reference (457) Cooking (426) Performing Arts (364) Music (360) Business & Economics (350) Counseling and Psychology(312) Family & Relationships (287)
