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...
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.

    On Ipod Touch, cannot use index to jump to chapter and verse

    It may have been programmed to do so, but it does not seem to work.

    For the price it's great!

    I found this version very easy to use. If you use the scroll search bar at the bottom, you can search for books or chapters.

    Perfectly Adequate

    This is a perfectly adequate edition of the NASB. The two-tiered contents feature (first, the books of the Bible, then the list of chapters) makes navigation easy.

    For the student who likes a lot of explanatory notes and cross-references, this is not where you will find them. Various study Bibles may be more useful, but for the person who simply wants the best available English language translation and the convenience of the NOOK format, welcom home.

    Great Choice

    I have read many reviews trying to decide which version to get. I chose this version because it is easy to read and follow. I use it on my NOOK Tablet and it is easy to navigate. I use it in church and can keep up pretty well with the scripture references. I have vision problems and being able to change the text size is a real benefit. Very happy with my decision!
