This is a feature that would be infinitely helpful for tracking personal progress toward reading completion goals, etc. If you're like me there are tons of books you have access to in Logos but it's difficult staying focused on one book or author. I will start reading one thing, get distracted and veer off in some other direction on some other topic in some other book, before I know it, I'll be sitting there a few days later back at the book I started with days beforehand thinking "this is that book I started reading days ago and until just now had forgotten all about...". This might sound like I have a problem with maintaining a focused approach to my studies but it can be difficult when you have over 1000 books and an amazing program that can search the whole lot of them for a topic or passage within seconds. I feel that having a solid, systematic grasp on various topics is necessary and useful for many reasons, but I also want to set and track reading goals for myself as well so I don't get totally lost in the sea of sundry selections. It would also be really great just to be able to track my thoughts and experiences by date and have it all backed up on a Logos server. This is a feature I for one would be willing to pay extra for if it was done well.
A calendar feature would be nice to include with any journal feature.

If this is ever added, could a privacy function be included? Wouldn't always want others to know about personal struggles and dilemmas I might be working through in my reading...
...Wonder if this might include "blog" functions, such as an api to wordpress...?

yes, for me this is part of a spiritual discipline component of the software. I'd LOVE to track things such as fasting, reading (bible/other), prayer, on a schedule.
I could leverage the cloud to update from phone or desk top and potentially give others insight into my consistency for accountability.
