I know Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, and language tools should be prioritized. At least your favorite ones, but, should I worry about prioritizing illustrations books or sermon outlines or even personal reading books?

Are there benefits from doing so?

Hi Joey,

I think you mentioned the top resources to prioritize. I prioritized bible harmony resources because I want to choose which ones populate at the top of the section in the Passage Guide. If you use daily devotionals and have several, you can prioritize which ones show up first.

Hope this helps.

Based on what Mo Proctor taught me (or, at least the way I understood it), no.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Agree on Joey's needs. But since many Logosians, indices are the key ... strangely (and helpfully) quite a few academic books have dictionaries in the appendices ... Ugarit quickly comes to mind. So, if you're in a marginal area, it's good to be aware of hidden jewels for prioritizing.

Yes. See https://wiki.logos.com/A_Sample_Prioritize_List

Joey Midgett:

Yes. Personal Books should also be prioritized according to their Type e.g. Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, lexicons.

If you mean "reading" books like fiction, manuals, biographies, church history etc. then the answer is No.
