Superior Navigation: interactive Table of Contents and Easy Navigation to a Particular Verse

This digital edition of the Bible provides four options for navigation on the Nook. The first three are fairly common to Nook books, but the final one is specific to this Bible; be sure to read it. Note also that navigation details might be different in the various Nook applications for other platforms.

First, when you click on Go to -> Chapter, you have the option of selecting Table of Contents. This Table of Contents provides hyperlinks to each book of the Bible. Clicking on a link to a book provides a list of chapters from which to choose. Once you click on the desired chapter, you are taken to that chapter and can flip the page to get to the desired verse if need be.

Second, when you click Go to -> Chapter, you can scroll through the list to your desired book of the Bible. Clicking on a link to a book provides a list of chapters from which to choose. Once you click on the desired chapter, you are taken to that chapter and can flip the page to get to the desired verse if need be.

Third, you can use Go to -> Page to navigate to a particular location. The book of the Bible will be shown as you move the page selection.

Fourth, you can navigate directly to a particular verse by searching for that verse using an abbreviated form of the book name and using spaces to separate the book name, chapter, and verse. For example, to navigate to Genesis 12:3, type "ge 12 3" in the Find box. This will take you to the page on which Genesis 12:3 appears. The search is not case sensitive. The abbreviated names for the books of the Bible can be found in the book's preface. Note, however, that as of the writing of this document, the Nook only searches forward from your present location in the Bible. Thus, for example, if you are reading in Exodus and wish to navigate to Genesis 12, you need to navigate first to a location before your desired location (e.g. by clicking Go to and selecting something before your desired location).
