Actually, I can think of one good reason to send a resource to the Kindle app - especially the one for PC or Mac. Suppose you don't have an eInk Kindle, but you have a Nook Glowlight or Kobo Aura. Well, you send the Logos resource to the Kindle for PC (or Mac) app. Then, you bring your new resource into Calibre. Then, you make it ePub or whatever you need to read on your own eInk device. 

Unless Amazon has changed it, you can't bring Personal Docs into the PC/Mac Apps or even the Cloud Reader.

Yes, even though I sent a test Logos resource to my KPW2, I can also read it on my Kindle iPad app and Android app. Yes, I was able to copy the book into Calibre on my laptop and then read it on any eInk reader I want!

I just looked and I was correct, you cannot send the personal doc to the computer.  You can copy it from your Kindle but then it  will not sync.

How long is it taking on average to send a book from Logos?  Obviously it depends on the size but how is it on average?

All the work is done on Logos' servers. I generally find the book is received on the Kindle about 10-15 minutes after the request.

there is an amazon tool for downloading all of your personal books all at once, they can then be copied and pasted into your kindle for pc folder, where your kindle for pc app will recognize them instantly.

Though I am not sure why one would want to read them on the pc app, if one is sitting in front of their pc, why not read from logos?

I've been swamped this week so haven't had much time to play with this yet, but once resource I converted took quite a bit of time. I started it last night and checked an hour later it was still processing:

Curious about the the times displayed. The times are ahead of Eastern time where I am. Notice a lot of threads touch this too.

I did try to send this one time earlier but forgot to allow the no_reply address.

If these are converted on the server, are they permanently or long-term cached so other users won't have to wait for the conversion process on subsequent requests?

Is simultaneous download of app update and resources new in this release?

The Kindle feature seems very well done. Very excited about this feature.

Definitely done on the server. I quickly started two conversions and immediately quit Logos. The books showed up shortly on my Kindle.

Starting a dozen conversions back to back doesn't seem to be a problem.

I have not yet noticed any more cases like I mentioned above where the conversion took anywhere near that long.

One book so far has strange conversion. Randomly uses a very large font for some paragraphs.

I kicked off a hundred. I figured that was probably the most one might be able to start before the first finished (and likely not even that many). So far so good.

I transferred the same out of curiosity. I don't think it's random but it is alway directly the first paragraph after a chapter heading (maybe formatted like a sub-chapter heading?). This is a bug, hope Logos can fix that.

Other than that, it works fine

I am getting the random large font as well. Sometimes it is for chapter titles, other times for the first paragraph of a chapter.

I am also NOT getting covers. The cover just shows as blank on my Kindle and my Kindle apps on other devices.

This is a limitation at Amazon's end.

love the Logos apps on my iPad, and when I want to highlight and take notes in resources, it is the best way to go. There are times, however, when I just want to read... The original kindle is idea[l]. Even at the beach. 

This is my point of view, as well. However, I'm worried that even "when I just want to read," I'll end up wanting to highlight or take a note. Ugh!

I was one of the very few who asked Logos not to dedicate resources to this feature in the thread that gauged interest. Obviously, I lost that battle (story of my life ;). Since the feature has been implemented, I'll probably get the latest, greatest paper white e-ink Kindle and try it out. I haven't used my 2nd gen Kindle since I got an iPad. That's all I use for Logos or Kindle reading (from a tablet).

Actually that is not the case.  I have sent personal documents from Calibre with the cover attached and it shows up perfectly well on the kindle.

Through Amazon's "Send to Kindle" service, or direct from Calibre to your kindle? The latter will certainly work (if the file is in the right format). The former doesn't work (as far as I'm aware).

Putting the book together in Calibre and having Calibre email it to my kindle email for the Personal Doc service at Amazon.  I also know that I am part of a blog for books program and they send books to your amazon kindle email and their covers come through fine as well.  It still has the "Personal Book" stripe at the bottom but the image still comes through.

That's interesting. What format does Calibre send to Kindle? My understanding is that covers are only shown for old .mobi/AZW files, and not for newer AZW3 files. AZW3 is required for footnotes and embedded fonts.
