5.0 out of 5 stars Some Easy Ways to Navigate April 1 2011
By Ms. Shy Funnybones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hesitated about getting this edition because some of the reviewers here mention difficult navigation but am now extremely glad I bought it. Yes, as others have noted, it has a very long, detailed, active Table of Contents which takes a lot of time to page all the way through. It is fine if you are looking for something near the beginning, like Morning Prayer, but cumbersome for anything toward the middle or end. However, there are other easy ways to navigate through the book.

First, if you use Kindle's search feature and search for the word "quick" (without the quotes), you will see numerous Quick Navigation indexes and can choose any you want: Page Numbers, Collects, Psalms, Canticles, Prefaces, Litanies, Sentences of Scripture, Confessions of Sins, Other Prayers, or Common Services. Each is an active index. If you go to the Psalms index, for example, you can select the number of any psalm and immediately arrive at it. I have bookmarked several of these indexes and can now get to them in a snap.

Another navigation option is searching for page numbers. The numbers in this Kindle edition are coordinated with those in the current standard edition. Thus, if you have access to a paper edition of the BCP but would rather read on the Kindle where you can adjust the font to a comfortable size, you can note the page number of any often-visited page in your paper edition and then search for it with Kindle's search feature. For example, Prayers and Thanksgivings starts on page 810. If you search for "p. 810"(without the quotes and with a space after the period), you arrive there in a jiffy. (I have found it is quicker to enter numbers by simultaneously pressing ALT and the appropriate letter on the top row of the Kindle keyboard than by opening the "Sym" page.) You can also choose the Quick Navigation index for Page Numbers on the Kindle and select any number to go to that page, though this particular index is a bit long because the BCP has more than 900 pages. An additional interesting feature is that page numbers, formatted in light gray, are sprinkled throughout the text, so you can see what page you are on. I have bookmarked the pages I often visit. Navigation to them is now simple.

All in all, this edition of The Book of Common Prayer quickly becomes easy and comfortable to navigate. While using the Kindle during a church service might be distracting, this edition is very nice indeed for prayer at home or while traveling. I am definitely glad I have it!

4.0 out of 5 stars very helpful easy to use with bookmarks March 9 2011
By Kim Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the same book we use in church (1979). One person made a comment that it had the 1789 versions BUT IT DOES NOT--it just has the ratification that is on page 8 of our 1979 prayer book. SO this is just the 1979 version.

It is easy to use once you get used to it. It even has page numbers. In the table of contents is a section with just page numbers you can click on to go to the page you desire. There is also an index for each of the Psalms. I find it easy to just bookmark my most frequently used sections to bring me quickly to the section. There are also links in the section that make it easy: for example in Rite II where you do prayers of the people they give links to each of the prayers--ie form one, form two, form 3 etc and you can go right there and then hit the back button to return. Very easy!

The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the table of contents is really really lengthly and a bit confusing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to navigate March 11 2011
By RRHIII - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was really happy to be able to get this, especially since I didn't take one to Afghanistan, and there aren't any Episcopal chaplains where I am. But navigation is a pain. You sort of have to guestimate where you'll land using the Kindle's Location tags. Yes, there are page numbers because the text is exactly like the book, but you can't flip to them, unless I'm missing something.

1.0 out of 5 stars difficult navigation and uses old lectionary not RCL Jan. 28 2012
By Ian Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this and returned it almost immediately. It is way to hard to navigate devotionally, on a touch anyway. It also uses the old Sunday lectionary not the RCL one that is in all new editions of the BCP 1979. The price was right but not worth the difficulties.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible. Jan. 20 2012
By Hedgewick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Kindle edition is neither organized nor formatted like the Official Book of Common Prayer. It is nearly impossible to quickly navigate the book. As a long-time user of the Book of Common Prayer, I am completely disappointed and wish I could return this.
