About the binding & cover
The cover is made from TuTone burgundy artificial leather & pink fabric. The artificial leather has a very nice feel, which feels more like bonded leather than artificial leather.
This edition has a very interesting format, instead of the usual order of the books this Bible is divided into 365 sections. One section for each day of the year, this format is meant to help you read the entire Bible in one year. Following this layout you could read the entire Bible in one year, with as little as fifteen minutes a day devoted to reading. Each fifteen minute reading includes a portion from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. Some passages of Scriptural are highlighted to help you focus on a key thoughts in each day’s reading. You’ll also find encouraging inspirational thoughts through out this Bible. The pages are done in a very feminine design, with certain passages highlighted in pink. This edition as silver gilded page edges & a built in pink ribbon marker. I do not recommend using highlighters in this Bible because of the thinness of the paper. The paper also has a slightly transparent quality about it.

My Personal Opinion
This Bible makes daily reading easy, all you have to do is just turn to today’s date & start reading. The readings take about fifteen minutes. But If your really short on time you could always read part of the section in the morning & the other part in the evening. When I read the title one year Bible I didn’t think that they meant this type of format, but this was defiantly a good surprise. The One Year Bible comes in many different editions & translations . This edition of The One Year Bible for Women NLT comes in paperback, hardback & imitation leather. If your looking for a daily devotional, Bible this would defiantly be a good choice. This Bible would make a wonderful Mother's day gift.
