This review is from: Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV) (Kindle Edition)
This NKJV for the Kindle was recently updated in October 2009 to fix some of the formatting issues present in the previous version as well as enabling chapter navigation. One word of caution regarding chapter navigation is that it works very well for me with the Old Testament but not so well with the New Testament (would take too long to explain). At any rate, I use this Kindle version as my daily reader and use 4 book marks to pick up where I last left off: 1. In the Old Testament 2. Book of Psalms. 3. Book of Proverbs. 4. New Testament.
When I need to study something in depth, I either go to (blueletterbible dot org) or pull out one of my leather bound Bibles.
Don't at all be afraid to get this bible if you are going to use it as your daily reader. Again, not so good for in depth bible study unless you get really, really good at using the kindle's search feature.
If you need a kindle Bible with better chapter navigation...get one of these: NKJV New Spirit Filled Life Bible or KJV: Holy Bible - The Illustrated King James Bible (King James Version, KJV): The Old & New Testaments, Deuterocanonical literature, Glossary and Suggested Reading.

Is Kindle working on a NKJV Bible that navigates easily throughout the bible and shows the book and verse numbers on each page?

I agree with you. I love the NKJV and would to be able to go to chapter and verse. Until then.... I'll keep using my trusty old "hard copy".

I agree with you Susan. I prefer the hard copy as well, but it is great that the Word is the same whether it is in hardcover, paperback, or Kindle. I really like this version. We have used it in our Bible study at my church.

So only the *formatting* has been updated? That's a disappointment, for a book whose contents were already starting to seem long in the tooth 100 years ago.
