    I'm a disabled librarian and now I'm a writer. I don't travel much. I have a friend who carries her iPad to church because it is a lot lighter than a large type Bible. If this is all I'm going to use it for, is it worth it? As I said, I'm a writer and I have four books on my laptop. I also have a lot of pictures, letters and other documents. My husband got this for me for Christmas but I'm thinking it's pretty expensive just to use as my Bible. (I have a bad back.) It looks like an interesting toy but I think it's too expensive considering that would be my main reason for having it. Is it something I would use with my writing or should I take it back and get someone to carry my Bible for me? I'm afraid it's going to be useless for me.

    There are MANY different apps for Bible study and the Kindle app is worth it so you can buy ebooks! Just think...you can carry an entire library of study tools and books on your iPad wherever you want! Couole that with the internet and youre all set! I'm a youth pastor and my iPad has become just about irreplaceable for me! :)

    However, you also have to weigh the benefits. You can use a Kindle as a Bible and as a library as well...

    I purchased a bible program from Lardian.com. I like that it allows me to have different versions open or study notes and a bible open at the same time. To answer your question, I think that the iPad is really worth it you check email, surf the net, enjoy social media and like to write. I do use a keyboard if I have much to type. But you can get used to the on-screen keyboard.

    You may want to consider the Mini iPad. I have both the iPad 3 and the Mini and despite not having the retina display I am using the Mini almost exclusively. It is much lighter and more convenient. I have several different versions of the Bible and use the Mini in my daily bible study.

    I have the iPad 3 and a Nexus 7. The Nexus is great, but it isn't as flawless as iOS.

    I use my Nexus like you use your mini for reading and convenience.

    I love my nexus, this device made me a regular tablet user but I will give it up once the next gen iPad mini comes out, specially if it has retina.

    I tested the Nexus 7 for a while. It actually wasn't too bad a tablet.

    I briefly considered the Nexus 7 but was satisfied with the Mini.

    yes I actually love it! My only reservation is that it doesn't fit well on my Apple ecosystem. I do however use it every day, can't put it down.
