I had been looking for a hardcover ESV Bible with a nice sewn binding to leave open on a book stand for reference, and for making notes in. I had thought several times that the ESV Reader's Bible would be just right, if it had verse numbers.
I was in Lifeway today trying to decide what to do with a couple of coupons I had burning a hole in my pocket, and I stumbled onto this one by accident. It was really cheap with my coupon, and will serve my purpose very nicely.
If you found yourself really liking the ESV Reader's Bible but wished it had verse numbers, this would be just the Bible for you. Hardbacks with a sewn binding make for a great "beater" Bible.
