On the home page of the app, in the Today's Readings section, I hit the plus button, then Daily Devotional, but the book I'm looking for (New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional) isn't listed. Is there any way I can add it?

It depends: is it a Logos edition resource (rather than Vyrso)? Is it the type:calendar devotional or something else? If the resource isn't the right edition/type, you will have to manually create a reading plan.

The resource you refer to (https://vyrso.com/product/49367/new-morning-mercies-a-daily-gospel-devotional) is a Vyrso book and they don't get the necessary date tagging to be added as a Daily Devotional.

Thanks, that's helpful. It's a Vyrso book.

One partial workaround for such things is to convert the Vyrso book into a Logos Personal Book (PB) and including the tagging by yourself. I've once done that for another such calendar devotional, it's pretty straightforward. Not that it's only a partial solution as PBs work only on your desktop and won't be visible on the iPhone/iPad.

Another workaround could be to make a reading plan for the book.

That's the real rub right there. Tongue Tied

you export it from Logos into MS WORD (using print/export from the resource menu that opens when clicking the top left picture tile), make any modifications you deem necessary, such as verifying the Heading styles, inserting milestones, maybe correcting some links, and then use Tools/Personal Books to add a new PB. You can then choose e.g. another type instead of monograph.

Does this help? If you need more detailed steps, please share which book you want to convert for what intended use.
