I have another idea you will either love or hate.  Screen tap on the 
right edge once brings up a scrollbar then you can use the down arrow to 
have the reader go to the next chapter when viewing the last verse.  Or 
if on the first verse an up arrow to go to previous chapter.  After 
which the scrollbar fades away so it isn't in the way of the text.

I would hope the reader would actually scroll to the last verse.  I am 
hoping to place the current book, chapter, and verse on the advanced 
menu.  Then when you scroll using the scroll bar you can quickly move to 
the verse you want.  Also thinking ahead for bookmarks, If I select 
create a bookmark it can just grab the verse at the top of the screen so 
the user doesn't have to enter in the verse manually.

Throwing out ideas.  :)
