Yep - that works nicely.
It seems strange though - you don't expect to log in for this.
What about putting registration at Install Bibles instead, and 
reserve login for notes and other personal stuff?
You often have to give an email address to download stuff nowadays, 
so it seems more normal.

The blinds in the middle work really nicely.
