The Bible (New International Version) takes the #1 spot on the Amazon Kindle’s Most Highlighted Books of All Time. And the #9 spot (New Living Translation). And the #10 spot (English Standard Version). And the #14 spot (New American Standard Version). And the #15 spot (another New Living Translation). And #23. And #25.
Amazing. Exciting. 7 of the top 25 “most highlighted books of all time” are Bibles. People are reading. People are highlighting.
People are engaging with Scripture. My highlights must be somewhere in the #10 ESV Study Bible, which I’m currently using to read through the Bible this year. I’ve been highlighting away. I didn’t know I was adding to the rankings!
I do find Amazon’s title a bit over the top, since the Kindle has only been around 3 years. It was first released November 19, 2007, according to Wikipedia. So to be the “most highlighted books of all time” really means “of the last 3 years on our eReader.”
But if all the paper Bibles were added into the mix, I’m sure more top spots would be filled with Bibles.
Are you reading a Bible on the Kindle? Which one do you prefer?
