Now that you can share documents, isn't it time to consider putting private Reading Lists into the Documents menu, and giving edit tools within Logos (i.e. right click to add to Reading Lists). They're a really useful resource for personal use, but underused because many people lack confidence in creating/editing them, both because of lack of tools, and because they may to keep them for their personal use.

For example, a Professor may want to create a reading list for a class, and share it with students. But he couldn't do that at the moment, because another user may later edit it.

(I'm not saying that we should remove the existing reading lists tool - we should keep that for community lists. Ideally, personal lists could be converted into Community lists, or you could base a personal list on a community list.)

I know this should be added to UserVoice, but thought it would be good to get some feedback first.

Yes!

Currently I use Favorites to create personal reading lists, but it lacks the ability to mark off things once read, and it is limited to things which I have in my Logos library. I might like to add something which I haven't bought yet but might if the price is right someday, and things that are on the web (well, I guess I can put both of those in Favorites by dragging the URL to Favorites, so nix those last two remarks).

Another way of doing it currently would be to create a Personal Book, with all the attendant links, but that's really too much work.

Providing a tool within Logos to easily create and edit personal reading lists would be really helpful!

So I give it two thumbs up! YesYes I'd give more if I had more than two thumbs.

Yes from me. It would be really useful to be able to right click a resource and add to a personal reading list. This way we could build reading list around research topics as we discover resources that may be useful

I rarely use the Community reading lists, but I can see several good uses for the idea you suggest, and I'd use personal reading lists a lot more often.

I would be willing to free up a vote in UserVoice and vote for this.

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

Several times in the past couple years, I've wished for a personal reading list in Logos. It would serve to be a place where I can keep track of what I want to read in Logos and what I am reading, including keeping my place (maybe the ability to associate a Favorite with an item on the list would make this work well). Just google searched for this and found this comment thread. So I'm adding my yes vote.

Great idea.  The fact that others can change your list so readily, and that it isn't available when you are offline has always discouraged me from making use of the facility.  I think Mark's suggestion makes the lists far more useful.  I often do my reading when I am offline, travelling or in a place with no Wifi, and it would be useful to have the lists available within Logos at these times.
