I would like to start out by saying that this is likely the best Trutone ESV I have ever received. The quality seems to be slightly better than other trutones I have had--pages seem slightly thicker, the Bible lays flat out of the box, and it simply is impressive for this price! This Bible is highly readable and could be used as an everyday Bible, while mimicking an ESV reader's Bible based on it's layout. It is the best compromise of a regular ESV Bible + Reader's Bible + Wide Margins for writing. Granted this has verses/chapters unlike the ESV six volume reader set, but it is still highly readable as the passage headings are in the margin vs. inline with the text. The font seems very readable at size 9 and the size of the Bible is on the "larger" side, but still portable in my opinion.
Neat, single columns, wide margins to write in, no extraneous detail cluttering the page: the perfect reading Bible. The size is very comfortable for carrying to church and Bible study. I couldn't have designed one more perfect for my needs.
