Really appreciate the "look inside" feature "powered by biblia.com.  i've been perusing a few books today.  But I noticed, none of the perusals allowed me to look at the table of contents.  that's a pretty important focal point when I preview a book.  wondering if that could change--does biblia need special coding, or what?

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Yes

I was using the look Inside feature yesterday when I came across the same need.  As I understand the look inside feature can give you the feel for the structure and style of writing in a resource without giving most of the content away for free.  Access to the Table of Contents would be huge selling point to achieve the purpose of Look Inside

Yes 

Trying to speak the truth in love, "look inside" adds little value. I even prefer the old sample pages to "look inside."

To choose a book, I want the TOC; Indexes of Authors, Sources, and Bibliography (to gauge the scope and quality of coverage), and a sample of the author's text. Professional and user reviews are also very helpful. To that end, I almost always go to Amazon, Google Books, or the publisher's product page.

. . . well (and some still exist!) I do like that we have TOC in the old way.  but, what I do like about the new way is that more of the book is covered, so I can access more of the content, especially when there are unique parts--for instance, a practical application section at the end of a book that opens up more heavily theological.  I also found it easier to use/load.  besides TOC, what feature did you enjoy of the old way?  I think perhaps we had more pages in sequence, even if it was just 4 or 5 of them.

I thought Bob was supposed to get on top of this: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/42489.aspx.

thanks, fgh.  i hadn't seen this thread over the holidays, and it didn't come up when i typed my thread title, either.  I see this has indeed been raised.
