Gee thanks, but, er... I was all excited and all set to go return the one I bought yesterday from Kindle. But nope.

Please hurry to resolve this issue where Zondervan books can't be sold to Canadian customers. Amazon seems to have no problem with it, and they're going to eat Faithlife's lunch.

The value of a Logos or Verbum book is tagging.  What is the added value of a Faithlife Ebook other then it is readable and searchable by the software?   [[Or is reading and searching it?]]

And Yes, when we search for a title on any Faithlife site we should see any hits on any Faithlife site with some indicator letting us know the level of tagging or other added value over buying the book on Kindle.

Readable isn't an advantage over Kindle. You can read on Kindle too.

The advantages are:

1) It's searchable across your entire library. (Kindle has searching, but only within one book; and the searches aren't as powerful, with boolean logic and wildcards and such.)

2) Highlighting and note-taking are more powerful. (Kindle has highlighting too, but you're limited to four colors of highlighter and plain text notes.)

3) Tagging in your library. (Kindle has a very minimal collections feature, but that's it; no ability for user tagging of books)

4) Bible references are automatically linked to your Logos library. This book has tons of them (mostly in the footnotes).

The level of tagging on Faithlife eBooks is always just the minimal automated tagging of Bible references, and creation of a Table of Contents that you can open in the side panel. (But Kindle also does the TOC side-panel thing.)

Thanks for suggesting this book.  [[am about half way through]] 

Thanks for the summary of the benefits of any resource that Logos or Verbum can read. 

And thanks for those that reminded us about Faithlife eBooks [[https://ebooks.faithlife.com/  ]]

In DAL's thread on free books, that got me wondering. Amazon's no dummy, and tons of data. But the common comment was 'waste'.  One poster 'dime-store'.

I'd have to assume 'customer'? The Logos (or forum customer) is a different customer segment?

The mystery, though, to me, isn't Kindle vs Logos, but eBooks (Faithlife) vs Logos.  I NEVER think eBooks (FL). Instead, I think Logos, or search Amazon.  Every now and then, a forumite will mention eBooks, and I'll shrug ... meh .... even though it's a definite step above Kindle (as Rosie lists).

Looking at my religious Paperwhite (also fiction, and hobbies), I'm deep into Enoch and judaism, Early Text of the NT, a few not-in-Logos (didn't check eBooks), Harnack, and so-on. Bunches. I think the equation is ease of reading.  My Paperwhites are half of my mini's weight-wise. Easier on the eyes.

Bottom-line, (for me), FL's militant eBooks separation translates to not-for-me. Unfortunately, when I arrive on Amazon, I scan the customers-also-bought, and there's just no stopping.

Ditto! It's very addictive. I often buy 10+ Kindle books in one night that way.

Just for information - Sadly, this book is not available from Faithlife to Australian customers either. Keep well Paul

Did I say I've had regrets after buying these books? Wink So far it isn't a problem for me.

Two books were recommended in the last two days and both are now on my Kindle.  No regrets.
