Odd that this Factbook is recommending books in Chinese. Thoughts?

Factbook will place resources in your language at the top of the list of suggested resources. If no English resources are showing up, then it means you already own the recommended resources in your language.

That might be the case but personally I don't care to see any foreign language books except Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic maybe Latin but this goes beyond the book store. I own all base packages with the Ultimate so now when I hit the recommend to me link it offers Chinese base packages like I picked up the Chinese language recently. I am seeing an unwelcome push for Chinese resources.

I imagine it’s more of a “recommend whatever the user doesn’t have since he said he wants a recommendation“ algorithm.

Yes, that's true.

We don't want to limit the usefulness for bilingual users, and unfortunately, at this time, we don't have a way for users to specify which languages they are interested in. This might make a good suggestion for the feedback site: https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app
