I would return this book if possible. It is much to difficult to figure out the Bible readings. I do not understand why the scriptures were not printed as in the other prayer books. I have an older prayer book of theirs, which is now out of print, and it is excellent. However, I wanted one on my Nook; and this is the only one I found. Very disappointed! My rating, because of the Bible readings, would be no more than 2.
Nook has improved the scripture readings some but still need to fix so that they read horizontally. Can't understand why, the abridged readings for Advent have it fixed as does the same from Google Play Books.
The scripture lists are vertical and need to be fixed to be rrad easily. Right now they are like reading an unfilled acrostic.
