The genuine leather bible I purchased from ESV was a major disappointment. It is only bonded leather and won't last. I would gladly pay the price for a truly "genuine" leather bible that can stand the test of time.
ESV is best translation I have found. The Thinline Bible offers true large type in a compact format. Small enough to carry or keep in briefcase and light enough to hold comfortably. Paper is thin, which allow highlighting color to peek through, but it is not bleed through -- it is just that paper is thin enough to be slightly translucent.
I tend to be very picky (unnecessarily so at times) when it comes to Bible selection; the font size, type face, feel of the bible, weight of the book, page thickness and more all come into play when I consider purchasing/using a Bible.
If you're looking for a thin-line Bible, with an easy-to-read format and font, that will serve as your plain, daily reading text, this Bible is for you.
And, I can only speak from my own experience, but I found the craftsmanship to be excellent.
I think you'll be highly delighted. It is a privilege to own such an edition.
