KJV Transetto

Let me just say that the following reviews are worth checking out as is this very unique printing of the KJV text:

While I read about these last year upon release, I wasn't much interested in non-traditional textual layouts.  Actually, I'm still not interested in non-traditional textual layouts!  I am and have always been searching for the perfect pocket Bible.  Skeptical as I may have initially been regarding these, let me just say that such skepticism was pretty much unfounded.  In my opinion, this is not only a great pocket Bible but also a great Bible overall.  I have been using it for awhile now for my devotional readings and prayers.  The Psalms are in paragraph format, but this doesn't seem to bother me.  I mean, let's face it, HTM's Psalter isn't far from paragraph format.  What I love is that I can take it with me  nearly everywhere...in my pocket.  Just about the only downside is that there is no ribbon marker, but this is a minor oversight as far as I am concerned.

Just wanted to share with you all something that I deem to be a really great, unique product.

I got a virus alert when I clicked on the second link...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

I got the same message, it popped up saying it had deleted a few viruses so I clicked out  ;)

EDIT: I'm still a bit worried for my computer, I shoudn't have clicked that second one :)

In terms of the actual topic though, yes, that looks cool. I might consider it, especially for back-to-school. I like to have a Bible with me, and it looks nice :)

Using a Mac I know longer know when there are viruses.

Hopefully this link will prove useful and virus free:

Thanks. I'll just check it out on Amazon and on the first link :) I ended up having to run a lot of scans through my computer, some Trojan thing got in after I clicked the link... No worries, though ;)
