Thanks Milford. Here are another currently free book to add to your list. Over the years I have greatly appreciated her ministry in light of her significant physical trials.

A Place of Healing by Joni Eareckson Tada -

http://vyrso.com/product/17395/a-place-of-healing?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Here is a description: In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. A Place of Healing is not an ivory-tower treatise on suffering. It’s an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no—and find new hope for thriving in-between.

Bless you, Bruce!               Thanks for sharing that with the Logos Forums Community!   *smile*

                   It's a book that I haven't read yet, so your words encourage me to "Take, Read" (thinking of St. Augustine - "Tolle Lege"      Joni's words, I believe, will most certainly reflect the Grace of her and our Saviour!

All of those titles are all also free on Amazon Kindle too. Lets set the record straight. Vyrso.com is not giving these away.

Obviously it is the publisher or distributor and it is not only free on Vyrso.

Given that it is also free on Kindle it is probably a publisher or distributor sale. I would suspect that many, if not most, of the free books are this way but nonetheless it is also a Vyrso offer and for that I am thankful.

+1.

Most of the offers are indeed extended from the publisher. Nevertheless, there is a cost associated to Logos… they have to pay for the servers, the website, maintenance, etc.

So what?

Vyrso is kind enough to carry these books in Logos format for those who don't own a Kindle. I've got a PC, an iMac, and an iPad. I do not have a Kindle.

Just giving credit where credit is due.

OP:

Wow!          Another "round" of "freebies" from Vyrso.com

The title of the thread would lead one to believe that it is Vyrso that is the source of the free books.

Simply pointing out that it isn't always so.


Super Tramp:

That is one way of looking at it. Vyrso exists to do acts of kindness.

A more accurate and realistic view is that Vyrso exists to make a profit on the reselling of books in electronic format.

I have received over 330 free books from Vyrso. I've probably purchased two dozen.

Give credit where it is due? Then why do you give Amazon Kindle credit if it is indeed the publisher? Kind of a double standard you have there.

Thanks, Logos for lots of free Vyrso books.

I mentioned the same offer on the kindle only to demonstrate that the offer is not limited to (and did not originate from) Vyrso. I think most people with average or above reading comprehension would understand that and hence would not perceive a nonexistent double standard.

How is this for reading comprehension?:

John:

Nobody in this thread said the books were limited to Vyrso, now did they? So your comprehension is suffering a bit.

If "most" people would understand that implies not "all" would. So, I introduce myself as one of the exceptional people who perceives that you have a little animosity towards the generosity of Logos. fwiw: In 5th grade I tested at the College Senior reading level. If your posts had better clarity we both could have been spared this interaction.

I'm glad to hear that you were a genius in 5th grade. That's nice to know Big Smile

Apparently you still do not understand the point here. The title of the thread says "from Vryso". It did not explicitly state that Vyrso was the only outlet or that Vryso was the source of "generosity". But it definitely IMPLIES it.

I was merely pointing out that Vryso was not the true source of what you are calling "generosity". No one else is still posting, so I assume that they understood my point. It had enough clarity for everyone else to understand. Everyone except the genius.

You are still missing the point. For Logos users who don't have Kindles, Logos is being generous to offer these titles on Vyrso. That generosity appears to be appreciated by the posters in this thread. We don't care if Kindle, Accordance, or WordSearch gives it away for free also. We are Logos users. We are grateful.

Vyroso is not being generous by giving you something free if it was the publisher who decided to offer it free. I know you are smart enough to understand this. I think you like to argue just for the sake of arguing.

I'm not sure this argument is helpful, and I don't want to prolong it. I'm really not sure it's a disagreement sufficiently serious to even make it worth having. Agree to disagree, gentlemen.

However, for the sake of Milford, who has been unwittingly dragged into the argument by virtue of him being responsible for the title of the thread, it's worth pointing out that he didn't say "from Vyrso", but "from Vyrso.com". As such, it seems to me that he wasn't attempting to locate the source of the generosity (was it Vyrso/Logos' generosity, or the publishers?), but rather the source of the files (the vyrso.com website). We know that free offers require both the agreement of the publisher and the retailer (and for that matter the author/rights holder too). I'm grateful to all of them.

So that's a third perspective. If John or SuperTramp (or anyone else, for that matter) doesn't agree, that's absolutely fine. I don't mind one bit. But please do it nicely Smile.
