I was wondering if you might be able to quickly share your thoughts on why you might buy a book from Google ebooks rather than Logos. For example, is it really worth it to pay Logos $25 for a book when I can get it on Google ebook for $7.99. I’m thinking more about the value of buying book theologies or similar less technical works from Logos, not commentaries. For instance, could it be better to by Continuity and Discontinuity from Logos for $25 or from Google for $7.99? Lets say Logos is going to sell Dr. Hamilton’s new book, God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgement. Would you buy it from Google for $7.99 or pay more (assuming it will cost more) to buy it from Logos?

I’m sticking with Logos for theology books because Logos has so many more advantages. E.g., I mark up my books in Logos with highlighting and notes, and I benefit from the many Logos-added hyperlinks and search features.
I’d use Google eBooks for some non-Logos books.
One advantage of an iPad over other e-readers is that it can handle so many formats (iBooks, Google eBooks, Logos, Kindle).
