Various: Bible, King James Version, V3.0, 06.16.2009 [epub] (UPDATED!!)

As I mentioned in this thread, I thought it would be a rather neat to have an epub version of the Bible, complete with multi-level TOC.
After doing a bit of looking around I just couldn't find anything. So, I decided to bite the bullet and try doing it myself.

What I did is I took the CompleteA.htm file from the above mentioned thread, stripped all of the links and unnecessary (in my view) tags, leaving me with a rather basic HTML file. After getting the HTML file where I wanted it I converted it using calibre to generate a single epub file with two levels of TOC to navigate down to the chapter.

The result is a single file that is quick and easy to navigate to get to the desired chapter. There are no links in the file itself, so there is no previous/next links to chapters etc - all navigation is carried out at the menu system with the numbered buttons. (for the Sony PRS-505)

I am providing both the revised HTML file, as well as the generated epub - feel free to improve either to your hearts content

UPDATE: I have run this bible through "ePub_TOC_enhancer_v0.01" as created by =X=. It improves the speed of initial loading of the bible dramatically. Attached file has been updated to V1.1.

UPDATE 2 (06/14/2009): Completely new version 2.0 has been added. See post #10 below for details

UPDATE 3 (06/16/2009): I decided to work on this some more - I fixed a few errors that crept in, and made some cosmetic changes.

Nice work!

I just loaded onto my 505 and tried it out.
The multi-level TOC is a great idea and works well.

Thanks!

I'd sorta forgotten about this

I ended up moving to a multi-file lrf bible, because to be honest, while this epub version worked well, it was too slow to navigate for my needs.

I'm glad some people have found it useful though.

Sherman,

Thank you for this epub file... While it is just the Old Testament... it works great. The multi level TOC works fine. I'd rather the multilevel TOC all in one file, then multiple files anyday... its is faster to get around this way when you are trying to follow in a sermon. (I have the 700).

If this is only the OT, the description in the initial post needs to be amended - there is certainly no mention of that fact there!

New Version 2.0

Well, I decided to come back to this, as I was never happy with the speed of the original epub on my PRS-505.

I went over the HTML to fix a couple of typos that had been pointed out to me, and I fancied up the chapter names a bit (eg: "1 Kings" becomes "The First Book of the Kings" in the text itself - not the TOC).

I also added a page break at EVERY chapter in the bible - and then told calibre to split the html file at every page break. This means the epub is made up of over a thousand TINY files (most <10 KB).
I then manually edited the TOC file to optimize the epub for speed.

The result of all of this is an epub KJV Bible that is lightning fast to navigate on a Sony PRS-505. As a bonus, just like the original, this epub Bible has multi-level TOC down to the chapter level.

I have updated the first post with the new version.

Note: Like the original, this epub Bible was created with the Sony PRS-505 in mind. As such, there are no links anywhere in the file for navigation purposes, as navigation is handled entirely by the menu system.

You'd think I'd gotten tired of this by now

Yet another new version - now at V3.0.

There were some problems with a couple of the book headings that I fixed. I also tweaked page breaks so that Book headings are no longer on a page to themselves.
last but not least, I removed the italics from all of the chapter headings.

Hope someone finds this useful

Unless I find any major problems, or someone else finds some major problems, this will be the last revision of this particular version.

I've been thinking I wanted one of these. I should have known there would be one on MR.

Thanks for sharing it!

Er, what's that supposed to mean? Is there a problem with my epub, or are you talking about something else?
