I need to get a couple of books for a class that Logos doesn't have.  Can I get the Kindle version and import it into Logos?  Or a .doc file?  How do I do this?  I found an old thread, but nothing referencing Logos 8.

There is no official support for importing from Kindle. However, there is the “personal book builder” tool which allows you to create resources by compiling a Microsoft .docx file. I assume that is what you read, and nothing has changed.

I tried the Kindle to PBB import once. It was messy and did not yield the results for which I had hoped. But a rudimentary import is possible (whether it is legal in your jurisdiction is another question altogether).

FYI, I have found many textbooks in the ebook.Faithlife bookstore that are not in the logos.com website. Faithlife ebooks are not tagged as meticulously as Logos resources, but my experience proves that Faithlife ebooks are preferable to any PBB I generate.
