KJV Compact Thinline Bible, Cloth Over Board

 If you're wanting a smaller but readable Bible, this is probably the most basic and functional you can get before you run into the "paper so thin it tears when you turn the page" problem.  The Compact Thinline Bible from Thomas Nelson is a good choice in almost any situation.  It's a pretty "standard" sort of Bible without any real notes to the reader or extraneous "helps."

I like it. 

And maybe this sounds silly, but it has a friendly sort of a feel, and it doesn't smell weird.  If you're like me, that's important.  The only criticism I would have is that it doesn't lie flat as the advertisements claim.  I've posed the Bible here with my telephone bill so that you can see the size, but I really had to press pretty hard to keep it open while I snapped the shot.

So I'd give it four stars.  It's nice, it seems sturdy, it's pretty all-occasion and plain.  No surprises.  Something about this font is very readable, I think even more than the standard Helvetica type.
