Is this feature lasting I thought I had read somewhere it was going to phased out. I may be confused by something else though.

I think you mean either 1) send to kindle OR 2) the lack of personal books on mobile.

Seriously?  You mean the personalized books are uploaded into the cloud, but not downloaded back onto my iPad?  That seems a little incredible and very annoying since this is exactly what I was hoping to use this function to do -- so that I could read on my tablet.

Yes

I don't need my PB's indexed on my mobile device, I just want to read them. Just my feelings.

Ditto. A simple sync across devices for reading would be perfect.

Try saving the DOCX file to a PDF and reading the PDF on the tablet.

But indexing is the whole point. I want to be able to select a few items from my library that connect and stay on topic as I go and frankly, I won't ever own all of the Logos books and Logos won't ever support all of the books I want. Personal Books looked like a good way for me to add, and fully connect, my own author preferences.

Apart from re-reviving an old thread, Faithlife have stated they will not sync PB's to mobile devices.

Hi Alexander:

No, nothing has changed with regard to reading Personal Books on mobile devices. It seems unlikely to ever happen.

The Upload function facilitates the synchronizing of Personal Books between desktop computers by uploading to servers and syncing other desktops.

How do you delete an uploaded personal book. I noticed on the couple that I uploaded that when I right-click nothing happens, so I can't delete the personal book and start over again.

My practice is to make a new one over the top of an old one which works fine.

I have used a dummy document and book cover and compiled the books with names like AA1..... so they are easy to find. Then when I make a new PB, I just use one of those AA....books and recompile it with new data. Works great for me.

That's because you can't permanently delete a PB after you upload it. You can Hide it as an alternative.
