Excellent edition but slightly flawed Search,

This review is from: NIV Bible (Kindle Edition)
For the most part I'm really pleased with this version. I'm delighted that the UK are finally allowed to have the NIV on Kindle. The Finder is good with the contents well laid out to minimize page turns and there are handy links at the end of each chapter. There are a few excellent extras. The Help and Guidance section gives you Bible verses to help with problems you may experience e.g. When friends let you down.
My only criticism (and the reason for dropping a star) is that, like many Kindle versions of the Bible, the layout hasn't taken into account the Kindle's Find ability being limited to Whole Words; the verse numbers have been put immediately in front of the first word in the verse and this means you won't be able to find e.g. Matthew 11:29 by typing in 'Take my yoke' because the word 'Take' is read by the Kindle as 29Take.
About the only Kindle Bibles that have managed to avoid this while still allowing good navigation is the KJV Easy Navigate Book by Hendrickson Bibles and the wonderful Bibles by Osnova (unfortunately, Osnova doesn't do the NIV yet)
