I would love to see Logos allow the use of Personal books on the mobile app. It's not the same trying to read on the desktop, and it would be extremely useful to carry around some of my PB's. As of now, if I wish to read on my iPad I either have to have the PDF, DOCX file, or the Kindle version. 

C'mon Logos, let's implement that feature soon!!!!

A few comments on BOB's statement

BOB: “but a bad business model for us, who ends up maintaining the storage, servers, tools, etc.”


Dave: “Turn off upload for PBB. Force us to rebuild them on each of our computers” No more you pay for storage.

BOB: “This would be less of an issue if most PBBs were a user's own, original content -- but most PBBs are actually public domain content. Often a duplication of something we already sell (thus competing with us, at the price of free), or something we intend to produce (which would be nearly all public domain content in the biblical studies area.”

Dave: For the Denominational group that I am in Faithlife released 402 resources that were core works when it first made an invention to the denomination. I have since added 275 PBB that the denomination might see as secondary core works. Faithlife sees my denomination as so important that it dropped the denominational manager.  [We had so few sales that we did not pay his wages]

BOB: “And, lastly, NOBODY uses PBB. *
* Same asterisk. Yes, I know that's not true -- that's why this thread is here. But in the big picture of all our users, PBB is a feature used by a tiny group of users who are passionate about it and have many resources in the system, but represent, as a group, only a tiny fraction of our user base.”

Dave: And that maybe the real reason. Statically zero point zero percent of the Faithlife users use PBB. But as Bob said - They are passionate and have many PBB [[Include me in that list. I have 328 PBBs [with more to input] including some Logos or Verbum Blog entries, the 72 session transcriptions of a study on Revelation that was on You Tube [the transcriptions of the videos, not the videos, provided by the producer], and others]]

when it first made an invention to the denomination. 

'invention' Should have been 'invitation'.  Maybe someday I will learn how to spell - maybe!
