Do those of you who own these books in Logos reference them often when studying/reading the Bible and other theological materials? 

I'm interested to know because I use Logos most often in "study mode" -- referencing dictionaries, commentaries, grammars, etc.  The search and cross-reference features are unbelievable -- a gift from God I would not have expected back when I was in seminary!

When just reading a book straight through, I prefer to read in Kindle (no backlight=easier on the eyes) or paper format.

The quick answer is I use them MORE for reading.  I have referenced them on occasion for certain things for research, but I would be more inclined to look elsewhere for general research, i.e. commentaries, dictionaries, etc.

With that said, I gave a lot of thought into how I wanted to purchase digital theology books for general reading, and I would not want to give up the cross reference features that Logos affords.  If I am reading one of those books, and a Bible reference or footnote is given, then I love the ability to tap it on my iPad and have it pop up for me.  Even though Kindle books are cheaper, I just find that I still want to be able to jump to references, even when simply reading the material.  I do understand however that it is a problem if it causes you eye strain.

They are heavy in bible references, and Logos gives you quick access to the bible text.

Does your kindle have access to biblia.com?

Thanks for the responses so far.  Each one has been very helpful to me.

My Kindle does have 3g access to biblia.com which I have used as an option to reading in Logos.  It is very helpful to hear that Wright's works have ample biblical references that makes Logos a preferred way of reading the text. 

Although in many cases Kindle is cheaper than Logos, the March Madness sale makes Logos' price point the lowest.
