I am reading a book in Logos and would like to keep my place when I change over from my Mac to my phone. Is there easy way to keep it updated with where I am at in the book, computer/phone?

Keep the book you are reading open on your Mac and it should open to the same place on your phone.

Logic - the book is open: they must be working with it.

          - the book is closed: they want to start afresh.

I am not following Mike's answer. 

For clarification: When a resource is open on mobile, it will stay put. It will not sync to the location from your desktop. When you open a resource from the library, it will open to the last used location across devices. 

The closest thing to a "sure fire" way to sync locations between desktop and mobile is to make sure that you always close the resource when you are done, allow Logos to sync, and to open the resource from the library.

This is a euphemism for 'Mike is wrong'.

He's probably right.

For more clarification: Faithlife assumes that if you leave a resource open on any device, that you plan to come back to it at a later time and expect it to be in the same place.

I have not harped on this for a while, but this is where my idea of "projects" would come in handy.

For clarification. While keeping the book open on laptop in Logos, I closed all books on phone. Then went back to book on phone and it opened up where I was on my laptop.

For the record I tried the bookmark option, but its not user friendly like perhaps a simple right click could be.

Yes That is what I expect with the current implementation. You should be able to close the books on the laptop and still get the same results, as long as the sync is able to be performed. Do note that having the resource in multiple layouts OR having multiple installations which might have the book open can cause unexpected results.
