I really like the ability to search within logos all of your available library. What is the possibility of integrating third party ebooks within logos? This would make it a onestop place for all your resources.

This would be nice, but now were are dealing with copyright issues.  Amazon is going to want some $$$$ from Logos for Logos to be able to using their format within L4.

I do this with my Kindle books using the Personal Books feature. I've posted a step-by-step here:

It's sort of a pain, and I don't do it with every book I buy on the Kindle, but it's worth the effort for books that I think I will reference later on.

Hi Sam! Welcome to the forums. Smile

As Tom suggested, there is little chance for several reasons. In addition to what he wrote, there is the issue of format. Logos uses a proprietary ebook format (as does Kindle, Nook, etc.).

Another option might be to create personal books and import them into Logos. This is subject to your understanding of copyright laws in your jurisdiction.

Yes, it can be done via this method.  Of course, stripping the DRM is questionable at best and illegal at worst.  It's often more of a pain than it's worth for 99% of the books I have on Kindle.
