Various: The Holy Bible - King James Version (KJV) of 1611/1769
I wanted a KJV translation of the Bible in EPUB format having the translators' notes.
Those can enhance our understanding because it gives us alternative translations and sometimes a literal translation of the original.
Because I couldn't find any KJV in EPUB format having the translators' notes, I decided to make one myself.
So here it is.
What you can find inside:
The author of TheWord states that the text is under public domain in every country other that UK.
The exact words are: "This is the King James Version of the Holy Bible (also known as the Authorized Version). This work is public domain, except in the United Kingdom, where it is governed by Crown copyright."
The preface was taken from artbible website (http://www.artbible.info/bible/preface/). I assume it's under public domain, just as the KJV itself.
Potential ideas for later (if I have time):
- cross-references (with links)
- Strong's numbers with links to dictionary
P.S.: On my Sony PRS-650 it takes about 6 seconds to load this, the first time. The table of contents is also slow to load the first time. It seems the device has some kind of caching because this only happens the first time if I don't open other books.
Do you have any idea how to make things faster? I already have individual xhtml files per chapter, so I don't think splitting further will help. If you have any tips about how to improve performance, please share.
04.12.2010 Added custom table of contents (XHTML page) that makes it much faster to jump to a certain Bible chapter. The information is much more compact than in the standard TOC and this means you can jump to a certain chapter without so many screen refreshes.
Also, the verse numbers now link back to this custom TOC, making it much easier to go to another location (on my Sony I have to go through 3 screen refreshes to get to the standard TOC).
05.12.2010 The chapter and verse numbers less that 10 are now prefixed by 0 (e.g. "03" instead of "3") to make the links easier to click.

Thank you and may God richly bless you for making this available. I was getting frustrated trying to use the Bible on an eReader without a TOC, i.e., try to guess what page number the passage is on, then read a few verses because there is no header or footer to tell you where you landed.
