Easier and Harder At the Same Time

I have this on my Nook. I bought it because I didn't like the original King James version that I bought first and this one was cheap and in regular English. It does take a while to load and searching for a chapter with the find feature takes a while but at least it gets there. In the other Bible I was using you could search by book but not by chapter. So it is easier to use the find feature in that way. Also every Book and Chapter is listed in the contents but scrolling for a particular chapter can take a while. All in all I like this one better. You just can't have it all the way you want it and this is a nice happy medium for me.

takes a long time to open on a Nook

This would be a fine resource for using the Bible on my Nook at home, but for church use, the navigation system takes too long. The Chapters are ALL of the books AND chapters of the Bible. So if I want to look up something in the New Testament (i.e. Mark 3), I have to scroll and scroll and scroll till I come to Mark 3. Then because the book is so large, it takes a long time to load. By that time, the preacher or teacher has already read it and moved on to something else. I can bookmark pages, but they are not labeled by the Book, but by the page number.

    Not recommended for Nook Color

    This book is very slow to open and slow to navigate. Seems to tax the operating system or memory on the nook color.

    Didn't work at all on my nook app

    I purchased the Bible and downloaded it to my nook app. But I could not read it. I sought technical support, but they were unable to resolve the problem. I think I will stick to Kindle products from now on.

    Maybe...

    Maybe the reason your it is slow is because you have to many books and it can't remember all of them plus the Bible. I mean can you do that? Cut it some slack.

    Hi

    I find this a very easy way to get to the verses you need. Easier then a handheld bible. I how i can find the new testement first and the old testement last. Anyway, if you need a nook bible, i'd recomend this one.

    God's Word!

    This is not just any book this is God's Word. Sharper than any two edged sword! I highly recommend that you read it. We are blessed in America to read the Bible and worship God freely!

    Terrific literal translation

    While it is not the updated version of the NAS, it is still a great deal for a buck, as the revisions are pretty minor, and of interest to only the theologian.

    Very readable and a joy to have on the Nook Color reader.

    Great translation, not so great navigation

    I use the nook glo, and although i really do like this particual translation, the navigation is slow and takes more time then it should, and it's my only book (and i have some really big books, much bigger then this) that lags.
