The type is very easy to read, however the pages are very thin & hard to turn. What we didn't expect is that some of the wording is different than previous editions. This makes it distracting when reading along with others in Church and/or Bible classes. Those wishing to buy a Bible cover for it, use the measurements when ordering one! Only some of the extra-large covers will fit. We bought three of these but wouldn't if we'd known the wording is different.
The large print in this reader edition actually is large and, therefore, very readable. I bought my copy on sale, which made a good price for a quality edition of one of the most accurate translations of the Bible.
