Bibles typically have thin paper. Use a Bible enough and the chances are good that a page will tear or wrinkle. Fortunately, tears and wrinkles can be repaired using paper repair tools. In this tutorial we’ll take a look at the tools and step through both types of repairs. First, let’s look at the tools. Then we’ll see how to repair Bible pages using the tools. First, I’d like to say a special thank you to my wife Lucinda for fixing my Bibles 🙂 Paper Repair Tools Tools I recommend are (contains affiliate links to help us keep this...Read More
I use ribbons to mark my place, but when I open to the ribbon and find four chapters on the two pages it marks I often don’t remember which chapter to read next. I sometimes end up reading the same chapter multiple times. An alternate of course is to mark the chapter or write it down, but that’s too cumbersome and I almost never have a pencil handy.

I love study Bibles. My favorites are those you create yourself. The best way to create your own study Bible is with a wide margin Bible.
