Most of my issues are nitpicking which is why I gave it 4 stars still, though it almost gets a 3 star. Its worth buying, especially if they ever change the paper to a slightly better quality paper. I want to say again this is very nit-picky, I would easily recommend this Bible overall, just didn't satisfy what I expected for myself.

Pros:
1. Good size, Good weight; not big but not exactly compact, so its good for carrying around to studies, service, etc. but might be a little annoying for backpacks if you carry a laptop and stuff.
2. Placeholder Ribbon
3. The study notes are out of the way enough to be unobtrusive yet helpful if you don't have time to check a more comprehensive study.
4. Overall nice appearance and text readability.
5. It's a KJV Bible. This is a PRO because through shopping, I'm realizing, sadly, theres less options for KJV.
6. SUBHEADINGS!!! Most KJV I've seen don't have subheadings that describe what you're about to read, "The Lords Prayer," "Justification By Faith," "The Ten Visions," etc. Big plus for me.

Cons:
1. The paper quality feels "super-cheap." I have a cheap $10 ESV Bible I got recently and the pages are buttery soft, though I did some research on the ESV and would rather stick to KJV which is why I bought this. My point is my other Bible was a $10 Bible and had buttery soft pages, this was $20 and the pages wrinkle and crinkle more than any Bible I've owned. This sounds pretty harsh, but wish it was a little nicer quality, especially considering the next point...

2. This might be a defect but the binding is bound SO tight it creates "ripples" through all the pages, especially the old testament. This combined with the super-cheap paper makes the pages wavey almost like subtle water damage. I could forgive the paper quality more if it wasn't for how the binding effects it. I'm hoping through heavy use it might relax and the pages feel better, it seems like it's happening so I'll give it some time.

3. This isn't much of an issue but the color of the cover is deep red. From the picture I thought it was black with a tiny bit of color, but when in a well lit room it's a wine red color and direct light it's almost cherry red. Again not a big deal just expected black. I uploaded pics to show this, again it looks almost black most of the time but when in direct light it glistens bright red. This would be a PRO for some because it actually looks nice.

4. No italics for added words in New testament, not a big deal for easy reading but if you create a study bible why omit this feature?

All in all its an ok Bible, 3.5 stars would be more accurate. It would be a five star bible to me if it had better paper and Italics for added words in NT.

I’ve been a devoted daily reader of the Bible for many decades. I’ve always wanted to carry a Bible with me when I’m away from home, but I often find it difficult or impractical to do so. So, I decided to look for an ebook edition of the Bible. It didn’t take me very long for me to find one that suits my needs perfectly: “The KJV Study Bible” from Barbour Books.

This Kindle edition of the Holy Bible from Barbour Books has everything I need in order to keep God’s Word close to my heart. It is the King James Version – still the most preferred English translation of Christian Scripture in the world, and certainly the one I most prefer. Whenever I read from it, I find myself drawn closer to God. It is simply glorious to read.

My new Kindle edition of “The KJV Study Bible” is very convenient to use. It works flawlessly with all my Kindle apps and devices. The Bible’s text is beautifully formatted for ease of reading and verse memorization. I can adjust both the size and style of the text font to make it easier on my eyes. The comprehensive supplemental information, which makes this a study Bible in its most true sense, is excellent. The 6,500 study notes, which are adapted from Barbour Books’ QuickNotes Simplified Bible Commentary series, are all hyperlinked to their corresponding verses. All I have to do is click/touch a Study Note hyperlink located next to a verse, and I am automatically taken to the applicable explanatory note. I can return to where I left off by clicking/touching the “Back” button in my Kindle app. Difficult, obscure, or obsolete words are hyperlinked to an excellent internal Bible dictionary.

Navigating through “The KJV Study Bible” is simple and straightforward. I can go to a specific book and chapter (but not a specific verse) through an excellent drop-down menu. Other helps include: the words of Christ printed in red; subject headings that serve as a guide to what follows in the text; an excellent concordance; and a series of colorful maps.

I am very pleased with my new “KJV Study Bible” Kindle Edition from Barbour Books. Highly recommended.

I bought this Bible recently on the Kindle app so I can read anywhere and even at night without having to sit under a lamp.
This is a nice study Bible and the notes are helpful in understanding what is being read. There is a dictionary, search and go to feature on the Kindle version. What I found the most frustrating is on the Kindle it is hard going back and forth to the study notes and then returning to where I left off reading because the notes are at the end of each chapter (not indexed) and very hard to jump back and forth.
What I like most about this Bible on Kindle is the highlight, bookmark and notes feature so that I can highlight, keep notes and add bookmarks letting me come back somewhat quickly to Scriptures that I have noted (this feature is available on all Kindle books though).
I'm sure this would be a great study tool for someone in print, but on Kindle it is frustrating jumping back and forth from study notes to where you're reading. So, I have kept this Bible for general reading when I am out, or at night and use my print study Bible for further in depth studying of Scriptures.
