Bible versions which are available so far for reading on Kindle are KJV, NIV, TNIV, The Word on the Street, and Young's Literal. But expect to see the ESV available for Kindle very soon, since the Crossway blog and technology team is keen on using the latest technology to promote the ESV.True to form, the techno-savvy team at Crossway has been working fast and this Monday they announce on the ESV Bible blog:
Let's see which other translations would we like to see "Kindled"? I would like to see NLT, NET, CEV, TEV, NASB, HCSB, NKJV, NRSV, NAB, NJB, NJPS, GW, NCV, REB in the Kindle format.
The ESV is now available on Kindle, the new ebook reader from Amazon, for $9.99.
Wayne at Better Bibles Blog noted that the ESV wasn’t available when Kindle launched. The main reason is that we wanted to test the ESV on an actual Kindle to provide the best possible experience of the ESV on Kindle.
And it would also be nice if the price of Kindle could drop 50% or so. OK, I'm asking for the moon, but, all things are possible. I'd say that getting the ESV on Kindle was done in rather record time. Maybe other versions on Kindle and a price drop could be Hanukkah and Christmas gifts.
Oh, there's another gift already available. Comments on the Kindle post on the ESV Bible Blog are currently open for constructive ideas on ways that the experience of reading the ESV (or any other version) could be improved on Kindle.
