You don't have to look any further than Barnes & Noble for this. Several versions are available from $.99 to $3.99 for the nook. The $3.99 version includes the navigation you require.

You can, of course, find copies of it for free (as it is in the public domain) in various formats, but it might be difficult to find them with such easy navigation.

It all depends on where you are. There really isn't an "official" Catholic Bible in English, though many translations sold as "Catholic" Bibles are fine for personal use and carry the Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat.

The Douay-Rheims is a contemporary of the King James Version (KJV) and was used by Catholics for centuries, though it suffers from the same deficiencies of the KJV today. Many older manuscripts have been discovered since the 1500s and more modern translations reflect this. It also has the disadvantage of being originally translated from the Latin Vulgate (though later revised) instead of coming directly from the original languages.

As for a translation that you'd hear in the liturgy, the New American Bible (NAB) is the closest you'll find in the United States. The Lectionary for readings at Mass is based on this translation. Until about ten years ago, you could hear the NAB, RSV, or JB in the US liturgies, but we've since standardized on the NAB-based Lectionary. In Canada, the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is used. The Revised Standard Version (RSV) is used in the UK and many other countries, and is the translation the Vatican uses for official documents in English. Barnes & Noble sells a copy of this under the title "The Ignatius Bible, Second Edition" and is on sale now. Another good one, if you can find it, is the Jerusalem Bible (JB). It's famous for translating the Tetragrammaton (YHWH) from Hebrew to "Yahweh" instead of "Lord," as most others do.

Ignatius Catholic Study Bible

I just recently bought from Ignatius Press for $14, the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible. This includes cookie notes by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch. It is in ePub or Kindle formats. It has "go back to text" links for getting back to the verse after you have looked at a note.

Phenomenal! I like the Kindle app better, so I bought it again in Kindle format to use on a jailbroken NookColor, but it works good on the B&N app on a non broken NC.

It is just the New Testament. The OT is still being written.

God bless,

Hal.

I have the Clementina Vulgate in epub format. You can convert it to any format you like using Calibre.

It's the only version declared authentic and free of doctrinal error by the Magisterium. That's pretty much as official as it gets. Of course, you might need to brush up on your Latin.
