I am not sure if it's necessary, but wanted to know if there is a place to show I've started reading a book? There seems to be a feature that shows how many people have read the book, but I'm not sure where that tool is.

thanks

The resource Information page

If you don't see "You've read...." then you haven't started to read it.

I'm suspicious of the percentage.  I know that I read Sproul's "Not a Chance" cover to cover almost fifteen years ago.  But Logos reports that I have read only 11% of the book.  Do you suppose that they "reset" the percentage if there is an update which is downloaded?

Actually, I keep a folder in Favorites for all the books that I have finished.  Visiting those, only 10% are reporting 100% read.  Many are showing as little as 2% or 3%.

If you completed reading the book before this feature was introduced it won't show up as 100%.

You can manually mark it as "read" by clicking on the circle and selecting "Mark Resource as Read".

Is it possible OP is confusing community Highlights which show how many people have highlighted a portion of text with this feature?

Library (details view) can be sorted by Reading Status:

Also can sort by Type (click on column header) followed by shift click (on column header) to sort by Reading Status (within Type)

as i recall that data point is not stored in the cloud, its stored locally, so if you reinstall logos you are back to 00%.

I cannot mark or reset, as above, because I am not given that option.  I have L7 free engine.

Have you opened the resource and gone to its Resource Information page? Clicking on the circle when it shows up in the Library's info panel, for example, doesn't get you those options.

The above is on my library page: I get 3 open options, a search gig + 2 prioritize options,

You have to open the resource and click on the circled 'i' in the upper right corner, which will take you to the Resource Information page. Between the description of the book and the tags, you'll see the progress circle; click on that and it'll give you the two options.
