Correct page numbering is highly desirable—improper page numbering prevents certification, and page numbers are included in service bulletins and often announced during services. At least there is a proper table of contents to quickly visit the correction section, though it may still require some flipping through pages. Also despite the description, correct pagination is indeed possible—there's nothing fancy or arcane about e-books. You can put them together however you like, if only you take the time. Sadly, the publishing corporation did not take the time necessary to publish a correctly paginated e-book. Otherwise, I find the e-book useful. You can search (sometimes better than referring to an index or table of contents), bookmark pages, and make annotations, without ruining an original copy of the book.

I use this in service all the time. Only issue though is there is an error in the Lord's prayer in the holy Eucharist rite two, Eucharistic prayer A. The lines Give us today our daily bread, and Give us this day our daily bread are switched and on the wrong sides.

An excellent electronic version of the Prayer Book. Very easy to set up bookmarks to flip to each text as it comes up during the service. Also, despite what the write-up says, the user has the choice of either flowing the text or retaining the original pagination.
