Some time ago there was a post that spoke of how to find free non-fiction books in Vryso that you do not currently have in your library.  The link given was https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=price%3A[0+TO+0]+-GenreGroup%3AFiction&start=0&sort=newest&pageSize=60&unlocked=no

I have played with that link this morning.  This one will give you the non-fiction books that you do not have in your library that are under $5.00 https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=price%3A[0+TO+5.00]+-GenreGroup%3AFiction&start=0&sort=newest&pageSize=60&unlocked=no

The links do not work perfectly in that there are a few fiction books there that slip in but overall it works fairly well.  In the above link, you can change the 5.00 to any amount you want.  Some of the best sales are books at 99 cents.  So you can change the 5.00 to 0.99 and it will give you all the non-fiction books at $0.99.  You can then sort by savings or any of the other options.

I hope this may help some to find helpful books at a good price.

Thanks for sharing this Michael. I will save this one for sure. Even if a few fiction books slip in my mistake it still will save time.

Ok so I played with it some more.  In a previous post I noted that I picked up the Old Testament volumes in the Shepherd's Notes series that were on sale for $0.99. I was curious about finding a listing of the Shepherd's Notes volumes that I have not yet picked up so I tried this link. https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=price%3A[0+TO+20.00]+title:shepherd%27s%20notes+-GenreGroup%3AFiction&start=0&sort=newest&pageSize=60&unlocked=no

I knew the price on the volumes was $4.99 but I set it at $20.00 just to see what would come back.  It came back with 8 results, all books that I do not have and all at $4.99. I can either purchase the ones I want at this price or come back and check again when I need a particular book.  This is helpful when we have sales like the one on Shepherd's Notes.  We can pick up the ones we want and then go back and see which ones are still not in our library to confirm if we missed any.

You are welcome Bruce.  I use the link for free books all the time, almost every day to see if anything is there.  Sometimes they are free for only a day or two.  It was well worth my time to play around with this.  Vryso has some great books at great prices.

You can do very similar with the Logos website.  I went to the website and entered Jame E Smith in the search box.  It came back with 18 results.  The web address is www.logos.com/products/search?q=James+E+Smith&Author=7363%7CJames+E.+Smith&redirecttoauthor=true&start=0&sort=rel&pageSize=60

I then added &unlocked=no at the end of the address and hit the enter key.  https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=James+E+Smith&Author=7363%7CJames+E.+Smith&redirecttoauthor=true&start=0&sort=rel&pageSize=60&unlocked=no

 This time it came back with only 12.  So there are 12 that I do not have.  That should mean that there should be 6 that I do have. So I changed the &unlocked=no to &unlocked=yes https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=James+E+Smith&Author=7363%7CJames+E.+Smith&redirecttoauthor=true&start=0&sort=rel&pageSize=60&unlocked=yes

Surprise, it came back with the 6 volumes that I do have.  Please note that your results will be different depending on which volumes you have in your library.  So this morning I learned that I can look at all of the results of a product search, or I can narrow it down to see just the products that I do not have, or I can see the products that I have purchased and are in my library. This will be helpful when we are looking at a particular author or other search criteria and just want to see which products we do not have.  When we start a new study project these search methods will prove helpful before we begin the project.
