I bought this bible cover over 2 years ago. It has 2 pen holders inside of it. I have a hard cover bible in it. I also attend bible study, every Sunday, and I read use my bible for Sunday Service, and again on a daily basis for devotional time. Having that said, beside putting my bible in it, i also put my a workbook and my pen and highlighter inside. On the outside pocket, I put my bible study book and paperwork. Now, it just started to rip on a corner of it. The handles, are still pretty sturdy. The fabric & color are still very nice. Now, I'm looking for a "study bible" cover, that will hold more.
