Reviews - What do customers think about KJV Compact Reference Bible?
compact, readable font, magnetic flap May 8, 2009
I visited several bookstores in my area to view the font size of various compact Bibles. 5.5-point is way too small for me. This Bible is 8-point, which is almost the same size as my regular sized Bible; the font is very readable.
This compact Bible fits in my back or front pants pocket. The actual measurements from cover edge to cover edge are 6" high x 4.25" wide x 1.25" thick; I suspect that this site's measurements are larger because they measured the box, not the Bible itself.
Another nice feature is the magnetic flap. This helps to keep the book from opening accidentally in luggage, and makes it easier to slip into your pocket without ruining the pages. I think I prefer the magnetic flap to the snap flap; sometimes the snap on the snap flap digs into the first few pages of the book; I was also concerned that the snap may eventually wear-out or come off. However, some kind of flap is better than no flap in order to protect the pages.
For a readable, compact Bible, I think this is an excellent choice at a very reasonable price, and I would purchase it again.
