I love used bookstores, and we have a great one in Nashville, TN! It's called McKay Used Books, and I have found a lot of gems there, especially when it comes to Bibles. Now, I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not really a "premium Bible person." I'm not really interested in spending over 50 or 60 bucks on a Bible most of the time. But awhile back, I did stumble on a NKJV at McKay's, for less than ten bucks, that I realized was a genuine leather Bible, which I later discovered had a typical retail price of about $80. It had just a little water damage on the last third of the Bible, so I could see why they were selling it at such a low price. So, for a long time, that was my only premium Bible.
Just recently, though, I've discovered a couple other ones that I felt I just had to add to my collection. The first was an HCSB, which tends to be one of my favorite translations. It was one of their "Minister's Bibles," and even though it had a little writing in it (on only a handful of pages), the feel of the leather was so beautiful, I thought the price of $17 was a steal. A few days later, I found a perfect ESV top grain leather Bible, still in the box. There were no markings on this one, and the ribbons were still tucked into the Bible. It was $27, which is a little high for a used Bible (in my opinion), but again, the leather felt great, and the print was nice and large, which pleased my aging eyes.
Finally, I'd read about the TBS Westminster Reference Bible, a King James Bible from the Trinitarian Bible Society, and I decided I would look for one on Amazon. I found one for a pretty reasonable price (about $60, with shipping), and so that one is on the way. That will probably just about do it for premium Bibles for me (for the time being). [Full disclosure: the pictures in this post are not taken by me. I found them on the Web.]
