Recommend me a good free Bible for Sony?

New to ebooks and just picked up a PRS-600. I would like to find a good free NIV Bible download and haven't had much luck. I either don't know where to look (most likely ) or they are well hidden. Can someone point me in the right direction.

BTW - great forum you all have here and looking forward to pitching in where I can add value

The NIV is copyrighted, limiting its distribution to either illegal sources or those under license from Zondervan.

As crc said, the NIV Bible isn't free legally. You can try digging around for a free bible on Inkmesh, but here's the most relevant set of results for niv bible for the Sony: http://inkmesh.com/search/?dv=3&qs=holy+bible. Hope you find something!

Please do not ask for pirated books at MR; it is a violation of the site guidelines to do so.

Thanks,

As stated the NIV is NOT available as a free download.

I have bought this version : http://www.zondervan.com/Cultures/en...Site=Zondervan

It is the FULL NIV for $6.99 with sections to complete the reading in 90 days. HIGHLY recommended.

Other formats are available from the same source.

I didn't realize that it was copyrighted and certainly didn't mean to violate the site guidelines. I just assumed it was my lack of skills / knowledge in finding it. Guess is was both!

Is the KJ version also copyrighted?

Only in the UK, where it's protected by "Crown copyright". It's in the public domain everywhere else.

Wow that's wild! I went to Wikipedia and looked it up. A 398 year copyright!
