I have a copy on order, but it has not yet arrived. Randy was gracious enough to send me a scanned copy of some pages - the font is a little different for λ, but the text seems readable, and the size is great.

Actually, Bob Jones U. offers two different sizes of pocket Greek NT's. I made a video for Wayne where I show the fonts of both.

I'd recommend both. Pocket Greek NT's are one of the resources that lead to flluency, although I realize that you are not asking about that.

I ordered the larger size. I see that you recommend getting both - do you not think the larger size is small enough to easily carry around? I was concerned that the print in the smaller size might not be good for extended reading.

I use the smaller size much more often. If I go pick up a pizza I whip it out and read a few paragraphs (with my reading glasses) while I wait. The bigger one is great too, but it does not fit into any pocket.

Susan, which one do you have?

It looks like the smaller version is the way to go for me easy carrying.

I didn't know there were 2 sizes; I have a hard time imagining one smaller than the one I have -- it's 3.5" wide by 4.7" tall by .5" thick.

I pretty much carry it around all the time and read a little now and then as free moments appear.

I have the larger size now, the smaller is on order.

The larger size is about 1/2 the size of a UBS 3 or UBS 4, just about as thick, very easily readable font, no apparatus. As Mark said, too big to fit in a pocket, but not a bad size for a suitcase or a backpack.

Just got the smaller size. It's much harder for me to read, the print is quite small.

I appreciate the update, Jonathan. You just made my decision for me. I'll be ordering the larger edition. Thank you as well, Mark, for the Youtube video.

Kindly,
