    navigation is SSSSSLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW

    I love this version of the bible, but trying to open this sucker makes me feel like I'm in a Science Fiction movie and we're in hyper-space, only inside the space ship, everything is moving in super-slow-mo. In fact, it's so irritating, that by the time it actually opens to the last page I was reading, I'm in a foul mood and no longer feel excited about studying God's word. Do...not...buy...this...bible...unless...you...enjoy...using...dialup...watching...paint...dry...and...waiting...for...water...to...boil...

    Improved Navigation

    I almost didn't purchase this eBook because of the previous reviews, but then realized that the navigation was improved in March 2011. For the Nook, the navigation works fine for me. The content bar at the bottom of the screen quickly pulls up a list of the books of the Bible (with alternate views) from which you can choose the book. Then it takes you to chapter listing allowing you to choose the specific chapter. Then a couple of swipes to the particular verse desired. The system takes a few seconds to actually get to the chosen book, but no more than 10 or so seconds.

    Hard to navigate

    Need to improve the navigation through the bible. Needs to be broken down by OT and NT as well as books and chapters. Literally takes 10 minutes to get to Revelation.

    Excellent book

    After the update the book is excellent. The only thing it does not have are foot notes or cross references if that is what your looking for ....then get the amplified bible by Zondervan... it does have it... me i have both of them.. at times i want to get deeper in the word i use Zondervan...at other times iuse the other one by Lockman foundation. Some think its a waste.. i dont i use them both. YOUR CHOICE....ENJOY.............The Waterwalker

    Just Wait a Second......

    Thoroughly disappointed in the fact that footnotes, with e-books, are essentially a thing of the past. What makes the Amplified Bible so significant/relevant, is the copious/ubiquitous footnotes. I'm crying for sure, and my new crusade is to not buy e-books where the footnotes are absent.

    Great for deaper study

    The amplified bible is great for those who do not know biblical languages but still long for a translation which fully captures the intended meening. This bible is a great resource and nook navigation is the best I've used (better than esv, holman christian standard). The update must have helped. Very highly recomended although not for the casual reader.
