Great on the Nook v1.5!

My wife and I took advantage of the $99 Nook wi-fi Black Friday deal and when we connected our Nooks to the internet, they promptly updated to v1.5. I had previously purchased the ESV Study Bible for use on another ereader that can handle B&N epubs. However, this Study Bible froze up that ereader whenever I attempted to read it. My new Nook with v1.5 software had absolutely no problem loading the ESV Study Bible. This is an excellent version of the Holy Bible and the study aids are tremendous. It was very easy to navigate using the Nook and quickly responded to any section I selected. I would highly recommend this to anyone using a Nook at least with v1.5. I don't know what the issues could have been with earlier reviews that said the ESV Study Bible would not work with their Nook, but I did have this installed in the main storage area of the Nook and not a memory card. I also have the most current firmware. Hopefully, this will help others troubleshoot any problems reading this on their Nook. I would not recommend purchasing if you're using an ereader other than a Nook.

I cannot open this book!!!

I also purchased this book and am not able to open it on my Nook. I wrote to Barnes and Noble, but they were of no help in solving the problem. After MUCH frustration, I simply considered a $$$ loss.

    NOT AS GOOD AS IT APPEARS

    The readability of the bible is great. The contrast of colors is great also. It's page turning is a bit of a hassel because of all the notes, the notes can be a great tool except when your trying to flip pages and you hit a hyperlink and then try to get back to where you were. I found many times the screeen would just go blank. I do not recommend this bible if you want to use it at church.

    Not what I had hoped for

    The ESV Study Bible is a great tool - I have the weight-lifter workout version and sadly prefer the old-school paper version to the ePub NOOK version. I don't know if it's the NOOK or the ESV-SB that is causing the problems, but I'm done wrestling with it. The content is great, but getting at it is so cumbersome that I am asking for a refund.

    I found this book difficult to open. it flickers and I have a difficulty finding one chapter to another. I have not been able to use this book.

    The hard copy gives you explanations at the bottom for the verses. This section of the Bible is what most helpful aand missing

    Great Bible, but the format stinks!!!

    I really like the ESV study bible. I have one in print and wanted it for my iPad as well. To study the bible, I tend to go back and forth through the book(s) to reference other scriptures, notes, maps, and so on. Physically I can do that with a book, but they haven't found a good way to manage that in my Nook app. It works just like any other book which is frustrating -- you always have to go back to the table of contents just to go to another book of the Bible! The free ESV bible, found in the Apple App Store, is much easier to use. Unfortunately, that is just the Bible minus the notes and maps. My thought when buying this was that it would be just like the free Bible, but better. Nope. It reads just like any other book on an e reader. Nothing special to the formatting or interface with this one.
