Just in at the Connect Store: The NIV Bible!

For those who have commented over the last ~10 months about the absence of the Bible from the ConnStore's listings, wonder no more -- they have added an NIV translation of the Bible to their offerings. I don't know how long it's been there, but there it is: http://ebooks.connect.com/product/40...000050202.html

Got it, Thanks! I just wrote them yesterday asking for this. I'm sure that's not why it is there but I am thankful.

Hey, you never know, edbro -- we've asked them for it before (some directly, some just ranting here), maybe you were the one who tipped the balance.

Okay, initial impressions:

a. Navigation is pretty good. All books and individual chapters are hyperlinked. The notes are also hyperlinked but, after jumping to a note, I don't see a way to resume back to the text you were reading.

b. Slow! I guess that's to be expected with a nearly 10MB book.

Use the history back function. File size doesn't affect LRF files. If it's slow, then it's badly made.

I was almost afraid to click on that link at the Connect store - the one that said "Author's Page"!...

I found the label on that link quite amusing too, Bob.

Now I know what I'm getting with the next chunk of my credit...
Though I wonder if NRSV would be coming (I prefer NRSV over NIV, but that's just me.)
But I'll give it a shot anyway.

Connect adds NIV Holy Bible

This was not listed yesterday, when I purchased a book.

Has anyone had a chance to look at this, and to see what links (if any) exist?

In that link I mentioned that I purchased the Connect version and I gave a mini-review:

The way to navigate back is to hit history back and you'll go back.
