Zondervan is having a $3.99 sale. 

     http://media.harpercollinschristian.com/page/43/ 

I found some, not all, available via Vyrso with a little searching (though not, apparently, via Zondervan directly) at the sale price.

Blessings,
Floyd

Try this link for a bunch of Zondervan sale-priced items on Vyrso:

https://vyrso.com/products/search?Publisher=Zondervan&start=&sort=pricelo&pageSize=60&unlocked=no 

You can weed out categories you're not interested in by appending a parameter like this to the URL:

&q=+-GenreGroup:*Fiction  - that will weed out all Fiction (Fiction and Young Adult Fiction)

Thanks for this.  I've been wondering how to weed out the stuff I don't want.  However, I tried the following URL:

https://vyrso.com/products/search?Publisher=Zondervan&start=&sort=pricelo&pageSize=60&unlocked=no&q=+-GenreGroup:*Fiction

I can still see all of the children's books eg. "Baby Moses and the Princess" and "Curious Creatures down under".  When I click on those resources, there's no clue about which genre they are to weed them out.  Also, is it possible to add multiple parameters eg. &q=+-GenreGroup:*Theology (or whatever, to the end of the already appended URL)?

I don't know, but the thread I linked to above has a number of links by the Vyrso Manager to various subject matters.

Does Vyrso tie into Logos?

Michael S.:

Does Vyrso tie into Logos?

Vyrso is the "trade" book store from Logos. In general terms: "logos" editions are "academic," while "Vyrso" editions include the kinds of titles more likely to be found at your "local Christian bookstore," which includes everything from "Amish romance novels" to "Christian living." There are some titles which mix up those definitions, but it is a good place to start. 

vyrso titles are "bare bones" and come into Logos through different agreements with the publishers Than do "logos" editions. The bad news: they are automatically converted and are not hand tagged. The good news: they integrate into your library and are cheaper. Because of the different agreements and low cost of conversion, Vyrso titles often have "publisher offered" deals like this sale. 

On another note: if you aren't a newbie, you can request that logos reset your post count.

Two other differences:

  1. Not being academic, Vyrso books tend to be more reader friendly, rather than search friendly.
  2. Not being hand processed, Vyrso books are dependent on the quality of the publishers submitted manuscripts.  Hence, you get what you get.
