I was browsing through an eReader store and there was a Bible pack for $20 (one of the reviews said it was good but that they wouldn't spend the money if they had to do it again). I can't find it again I want it because it takes tens and tens of books that offer background info, explanations, additional resources for The Bible - all linked. All of the books are PD but the linkage for me is worth the $20. Help me find it again? Thanks!

Has anyone found the KJV Bible that I posted useful? I ask because it seemed to do the trick for me, but I'd work on it some more if others had suggestions. Also, I'd be willing to do the same for other versions - if I was supplied the text and as long as I wouldn't be infringing any copyrights. Let me know. This forum has been a big help to me and any way I can give back, I will.

VikingDave, nice work. Kinda like it!
The only problem is, since i'm pretty new to bible, I need to remember that Proverbs is withing the Psalm & Songs of Solomons file...
So my personal opinion is that splitting file per each book is better idea.

I recently bought NIV in LIT format but I don't how to format it for the reader.. If only someone could help...

My thought in doing it this way was that it needed to be split for easier navigation, but splitting it into 66 books would be too unruly. I tried to segregate it so that the highest number of menu choices would be 10 so that it would fit nicely onto one TOC list.

I would be willing to look at the NIV in lit format to see what could be done with it, but I just have some apprehension in doing anything with it because of the NIV copyright. I am not sure of the ethical or legal implications in just re-formatting something to make it easier to use.

An eReader store is no use to you if you have a Sony Reader. The Sony Reader will not read eReader files.

Hi, VikingDave,
Just want let you know that I absolutely love your KJV BIBLE. I used to spend $1.99 on Connect Store to buy a KJV. But it was full of mis-spelling and missing spaces. "the" becomes "he". "the morning" becomes "themorning" Your version is much better than that commercial version!
When it comes to splitting books. I actually PREFER to have a one consolidated version with all 66 books in it. Now I have all 9 parts displayed in the book list. And because my 500 displays meta info instead of file names of lrf, they were all displayed "KJV Bible XXXXX XXXXX" and it doesn't start from Genesis but in alphabetic order. But I manually edited meta info and put 01, 02 in it. Now everything is fine and in order. That's why I still prefer one consolidated version.
Anyway, thank you very much for the KJV. I love it!

VikingDave,

I love your KJV as well. I too bought the Connect Store KJV and disliked the formatting.

I would like to have a World English Bible formatted like your KJV. A WEB has been posted here but I don't like the formatting - large fonts, large margins, and no footers showing the current Book. The WEB is Public Domain and available at ebible.org. It's a bit more Evangelical-leaning that the NIV, as I understand it, but I've come to prefer the WEB to the KJV.

Thanks for your efforts. I read your KJV every week. For those looking for some good supporting material I purchased Amy-Jill Levine's The Misunderstood Jew at the Connect Store and am enjoying it immensely. It's about understanding Jesus' message through the context of what it meant for him to be a Jew at his time. My uncle-in-law, a Catholic Priest (I'm sort of a Christian free agent/agnostic), put me onto Levine as a lecturer and she's an even better writer.

Thanks to you both. I've been away a little while but I'll take a look at what I can do on both accounts. I should be able to consolidate into one book - several have mentioned that as an option. I'll also take a look at the WEBible.

Can the Kindle read LRF files? My understanding is NO, but mine isn't here yet. If not, could some wondrous and kind soul convert this to a format the Kindle will like? Mobipocket preferably?

I see several versions of the KJV for Kindle, listed on Amazon. I guess one could preview them, to see if any are decently indexed and TOC'd, before actually paying money for them. But I have more faith in the quality produced by youz guyz here, than in Amazon!

I downloaded the KJV from Gutenberg by Chapters. Sixty-six books, but it was worth it. It is reasonably easy to quickly jump to various passages using the Sony tools (holding down the page key jumps forward ten pages; also the book is divided into tenths by selecting numbers 1 through 0. Then I used Libr500 (I'm a mac user) to "tag" the books "Bible" so that they show up in collections as the Bible. Also, I named the books to automatically stay in order: 01-Genesis, 02-Exodus, etc.

NAS Bible for Sony Reader on Ebay

Hello. Since I couldn't find the NAS for the Sony Reader, I decided to make my own by creating pdf files of every book. I formatted it so that there is one chapter per page for ease of navigation in the Reader.

I am a missionary and am selling these pdfs on Ebay to fund my mission.

Item #190274814426

Thanks.

The NAS is still copyrighted. Do you have permission? I have posted a ASV New Testament here at MobileRead and planning to do an Old Testament as well.

Thanks. I forgot to update this. I contacted the Lockman Foundation and found out that I can't do this, so I took the auction down.

What a great thing that would be on the Reader's e-ink screen!
