I bought Logos last Sunday and am finding it more difficult to use than I expected.  However, I'm not getting frustrated. I just finally decided to stop and ask for directions :).

My first question is, can I add an eBook to my library  For example:

http://www.booku.com/Love-and-Respect-for-a-Lifetime/Emerson-Eggerichs/ebook_599352.htm

I am in Couples ministry and would love to enhance my library with material like this.

Thanks

Joe

Welcome to the forums! Smile

Joseph Strano:

Yes… but: You can add eBooks from Vyrso (the Logos trade book store) directly via purchase. If you want to add books from other sources, you must add it via the personal book builder. These must be in Microsoft Word (.docx) format. You can add eBooks from other sources ONLY if you convert them first. You will need to determine the legality of that in your jurisdiction. 

The Eggerichs book is available directly through Vyrso: http://vyrso.com/product/11794/love-and-respect-for-a-lifetime-women-absolutely-need-love-men-absolutely-need-respect-its-as-simple-and-as-complicated-as-that

Hi Joe - and welcome to the forums.

you can't add general ebooks into Logos, they need to be specifically formatted.

However, the resource you mention is available in Logos' Vyrso store at http://vyrso.com/product/11794/love-and-respect-for-a-lifetime-women-absolutely-need-love-men-absolutely-need-respect-its-as-simple-and-as-complicated-as-that

Vyrso books are fully compatible with Logos, just sourced in a different way and not as extensively tagged, so this should give you what you are looking for.

EDIT: Apolgoies for the duplicated information. Alabama must have been typing faster!

Thank you both for the quick replies.  So, if I purchase eBooks from this site, I'll be able to integrate those books into my Logos library and they will show up on any relevant searches?

As Graham said, yes! Not only that, but as long as you use your same credentials, they will automatically download to L4/L5 and be instantly available on mobile.

On a similar note, I am a user of the Vyrso and Bible app on my Android phone. Is there a way to get some of the pub domain works such as William Evans "How to Memorize" from the beta Books pages? The address for this book as an example is https://books.logos.com/books/7387. I would love to have this in my library to use on my phone.

Vyrso books are e-books and have not been marked up as completely as standard LOGOS books.  Some kinds of searches will find material in Vyrso books, others will not.  

On the other hand, we have been told that Vyrso books that are eventually converted in LOGOS books will be added to our LOGOS library for free.

Blessings,
Floyd

persoanl books don't current sync and are not availibile on the mobile apps. Logos is working on this, but no timetables have been given.
