This mockup is only for the fun of the idea, not a real suggestion.

The book is "The GOOD life" by Charles Colson.

Edit: Needed to be clearer on the purpose of the post. Also added watermark for clarity on the origin of the mockup.

This is a fun suggestion,  but I hope Logos doesn't try to get into the hardware business, whether that be e-reader or tablet or phone.  Look at B&N, a much larger company, and how they can barely compete with Amazon.  Besides B&N and Amazon, and to a lesser extent Kobo, everyone else has gotten bankrupted out of the e-reader market, and many of the tablet companies will follow suit shortly as the big players (Apple, Samsung, etc) continue to dominate even more.

Yes, as I wrote: "for the fun of the idea". I am aware of the market situation, and I also doubt that something like this would ever be profitable. I myself own an Amazon kindle...

It took me an hour or two, but I "rooted" my Nook Simple Touch.  Then I installed the Vyrso and Logos apps using the Amazon App Store.  You need an SD memory card to install the apps, but I needed one anyway to perform the "rooting".  

 

It also runs Logos:

I want to do this so badly, I bought a simple touch just for the purpose.   Having trouble installing.  Have tried build 64, 72 & 74.   No luck!   Help!!

I read on my iPad, but it is too big and is not e-ink. And while I don't think Logos should make their own proprietary e-reader, I do think Logos should come up with a solution to this issue. The majority of people would prefer to read their Logos books with e-ink. Make this happen Logos! I will throw my money at you.

But I do think that the software that is marketed by LOGOS is the best for reading academic books - of any type.  I would love to see a general purpose reader marketed for use with books from a variety of academic publishers from different disciplines - psychology, chemistry, mathematics, history, etc.  None of the currently available e-readers provide as many options for marking up electronic text books as does logos.  

This would mean, not creating new hardware, but creating a new division within LOGOS which would make the best e-reader available for many different disciplines.

Yours because His,

Floyd
