TunesareusVirginia4 Stars Out Of 5Fine for me, but not for everyoneAugust 18, 2013TunesareusVirginiaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you're unsure about the 6 point print size, here is my relation: this Bible puts 900 pages of text into less space than it takes for a standard mass market novel (think supermarket/dime store variety) of 250-300 pages. Granted, Bibles use thinner paper, but this still represents a big difference--one that is accounted for in print size. (My other relation is that 6 point is roughly half the size you would find in a standard business letter.) If you need glasses to read, this Bible is not for you.
I got this Bible because I wanted to be able to follow along in the same translation as the pastor during sermons. The pluses to this Bible are that it's lightweight, easily portable, has a nice cover, and the dual column format makes it easier to read the small print size. The minuses are that the paper seems thin (even for a Bible), it's not red letter, the overall size is too small for even a small Bible cover (a cover designed for a mass paperback might work), and I find the lack of a ribbon marker particularly inconvenient as other bookmarks are too heavy and just fall out.
I would advise others that this is a no frills Bible not suited for study because there's no room to write notes and the paper is too thin for highlighting or underlining. Although I'm near-sighted and can read the small size okay, I wouldn't want to have to read it for long stretches at a time. I also wouldn't recommend this Bible as a gift unless someone specifically asks for it or you are well versed in the recipient's vision needs and preferences.
Overall, I'm satisfied with this Bible for my purposes and would recommend it to anyone with similar needs and vision capabilities.
