The formatting and navigation on the Kindle version is so-far-so-good! There are some quirky indentations every once in a while. But overall, the navigation has been very convenient. There is an excellent table of contents that Kindlers can "Go To" from any page. There is a hyperlinked chapter listing at the beginning of each book. End notes are also hyperlinked and users can return to their reading by hitting 'Back' on the menu bar. It is only mildly cumbersome.
So far my only complaint is that the search feature does not allow quick navigation to book, chapter, and verse. For instance, searching "John 3:16" produces no results. I can still navigate to the chapter quickly but for long chapters, finding your verse in Bible study or church will be obnoxiously slow.
I have the $0.99 Revised American Standard Version which has a lot better search capability.
Unlike the New Oxford Annotated NRSV, this version lacks detailed contextual and scholarly discussion which I enjoy. But to have the NRSV with me all the time is worth the price tag.
Hopefully someone will figure out how to use the search function better than me and will post a "How-To"!
I returned the initial Kindle version because it was not truly optimized/formatted for the Kindle, only allowing navigation to books but not chapters within books.
While this version overcomes that shortfall ... It does so clumsily.
For example, from the Table of Contents you must first click-on the Book, which then takes you to a sub-page, and then click-on the chapter. It doesn't have to be this way as the NET Bible's Kindle Version demonstrates.
I also expected more from the Notes, as well. I expected to see at least 3 types of notes ... Alternate Translations for Passages, Translation Notes and Study Notes. But from what I have read so far there are only Alternate Translations and fewer than expected. The Notes pages are poorly formatted and the Note Numbers within the scripture pages that navigate you to the Notes Pages are rather large which is distracting.
I also expected Chapter Titles and Sub-Section Titles but there are only Chapter Numbers.
Comparing formatting, use-ability and price to other Bible versions on the Kindle, such as the NET, this newer NSRV Kindle version disappoints.
And that's unfortunate because the NRSV is an important version and other strong Kindle Bible versions are very much needed to elevate the experience of Bible reading.
