Sean:

You might get better answers by posting this in another thread - but then there may be some who will start complaining because your question is not related to LOGOS.  Regardless, I can give you a partial answer:

For highlighting in a paper Bible, I have found a good set of crayons works wonders without bleeding through.  I like the "Twistable" line from Crayola as a good compromise between true highlighters and the boxed crayons we used as kids.  The Twistables are sealed in plastic and are not as subject to breakage as the old boxed crayons:

They also make colored pencils in a twistable format that might be useful, though I have not tried these.

Blessings,
Floyd

I haven't opened a paper Bible in years.

For study, I read on an iPad tablet.  I find that it is easier to take notes and control their location much easier on a tablet.  I even have developed a stock process of highlighting (while creating a new note file, if necessary), copying the highlight, editing the highlight to become a note, adjusting the note title, pasting the entire highlight INTO the note, then adding any of my own comments.  Thus, my note file becomes quite readable in its own way.

I research new topics on a PC where its easier to perform complex searches and build folders in favorites.  Also, I can process my notes and copy / paste into presentation material as I prepare class notes.

I tend to use the free ESV Bible app on my tablet in the pew.  It has been greatly improved in the last year and I find it a lot faster than Logos for verse lookup.  There I take sermon notes on the bulletin because I don't expect to archive the content.

Geo Philips:

I got back into paper Bibles after 5 years due to the Bible design 'fad'!

I carry a Pitt-Minion ESV to church and have a reader's edition ESV at home for family devotions.

I love Logos but there is something about these paper Bibles that is unparalleled by the digital age.

This is exactly what prompted my original post.  I have been nearly all digital with iPad or iPhone at church and laptop or desktop for home study.  I'm thinking about getting a nice, high quality leather Bible with some Christmas money.  I've done some research over the past week and there are some really beautiful high quality Bibles out there.

Sean Collins:

Perhaps a little off topic, but I am looking at fountain pens for journaling and note taking. Any recommendations for a beginner? Thanks in advance!

Fountain pens demand a bit of discipline, but if you want something well made at a very reasonable price, look at a Pilot Metropolitan and get the Con-50 converter to fill from a bottle. Or look at some of the lower price Cross pens. I avoid cartridges because you pay a lot for the convenience and bottle fill wets the nib which is very practical. You also have the freedom to choose an ink that best works for you.

I used to be a paper Bible and journal guy, then after having Logos a couple years, I changed up and did all my reading and notes on Logos. Just recently though I've switched back (after about 2 years). I find that I comprehend and remember the text better on a paper Bible. I still use Logos for Bible study, but use my paper Bible for regular morning reading (although I definitely still often look up a passage or 2 with Logos while in my devotional reading time).  I still use Logos for notes I take on the Bible, but for morning devotion notes (which I consider different) I use a paper journal. It seems to stick with me way better for some reason. I don't know if It's because of the quick-scan nature of the internet or what, but my mind seems to read and forget most digital text. I'm excited about some of the new reader friendly Bible's being released lately like Crossway's Reader versions, and the new kickstarter Bibliotheca!

Pastors, Ministers, Evangelist, etc. have a certain look rather they carry a leather Bible or not, bu those not familiar with church will not readily recognize that look. So, a leather Bible still has visual impact, as a doctors stethoscope and labcoat does. Smile

There are "Bible-look" phone cases selling. Maybe logos could provide also their own?

As an engineer I don't trust technology, so I use also paper. Paper books and maps often serve as additional screens, and they do not change read location unexpected.

How about a cylindrical scroll-look screen for the Hebrew enthusiasts? May look cool when you use it in a crowded place Cool

I always carry a paper Bible to the pulpit 

I use Logos at church except when I am on the pulpit - mostly for Scripture reading then it is paper Bible.  

When doing a church presentation I have power point running but with my paper Bible in hand.

In class or Bible study it is Logos.  

Was in one Bible study where I was studying the presenters methods where someone asked a question that the presenter could not answer off the top of his head. The presenter turned to me and asked me to look it up.  Logos came to the rescue. Lesson learned: Always have a second in the room.

I haven't used a paper Bible regularly for years.... in the glove box i keep a small pocket NJB leather, and on my prayer desk there is a NOAB 3rd A. but it is only occasionally used, but some times I do feel the need to turn to it where I am studying and read it on paper. But this action is more a way of reminding me when i return of the insight I had yesterday....

The one great advantage of using a paper Bible is knowing that most of the people we teach or preach to are using one as well.

One thing I've started to do lately is to print out the text one verse per line in Logos and just mark it up as I study. It's very interactive and I see a lot more.

That is quite a useful work of art!  Thanks.

Does anyone keep paper bibles around to give away?  I have a stack in the closet for that, but they are dusty.

I use to buy cases of pew bibles NIV and NASB- to just hand out- it helps to put books in peoples hands- especially sinners- why? the Lord works through his word and you never know when they find themselves responding to Him- having that within their reach just makes it all the easier for the brother or sister who is in their way to minister to them.

Paper/Leather Bibles are a universal medium for handing out. Handing out Tablets with eBibles loaded will most likely not be an economical way to go for some time. For those of us very serious and heavily involved in study, Logos can't be beat.

Logos does have a case, although it doesn't look like a bible. https://www.logos.com/product/38233/logos-iphone-5-cover

You can never trust technology so much as to not have a backup. I use Logos a lot, almost exclusively for much needed study, but if the lights go out, it is good to know that you can bring out the paper/leather Bible and a candle. :-)

Thinking of Hebrew, my optometrist has a Hebrew eye chart in his office. I've been meaning to ask him where he got it from. Have to get one of those. :-)

I use print Bibles principally when I'm praying in churches and chapels.

I have a Cambridge Clarion ESV, which is a goatskin cover, single-column format black-letter premium Bible. The binding is very limp and lays down flat anywhere you open it. It is beautiful and well-crafted in every respect. No Logos-formatted version can touch it.

Yes.  Prisons have physical book limits for residents while halfway houses let clients have more.  Study Bibles are popular.
