The monthly free eBook from FL eBook's is already in Logos format under a different ISBN and product code.  Given there is one site that can search across all sites shouldn't it be something that is checked before these offers are signed off ?

An additional book in the monthly FL e-books offer is also in Logos format already both under different ISBNs and product codes.

At least the Packer ebook is free.  I did have to return the duplicate Lloyd-Jones book for a refund.

I've seen more than one old classic book come across in more than one logos version. I remember being left with a coin toss as to what to order since there was no way to verify anything.

On the positive side, we're likely to get the Logos version for free.

Maybe but I’d much rather FL not make these mistakes and have to the throw away money to rectify such mistakes.

I expect that check will become part of the process beginning with next month's freebie+#s.

Well it didn't become part of the process last time this happened...
