Catholic Bibles have more books in the Old Testament then Non-Catholic (protestant) Bibles. (Although I’m sure you knew that! :))

Personally I have the NAB (New American Bible) Study Bible.
The NAB is the translation that is used in the Church’s lectionary. (USA)

I also have a Devotional Bible that uses the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version) text.

Then we do have a KJB in the house. (It was from my hubby before he became Catholic.)

I’ve read bits and pieces of the Douray-Rheims via internet.
See here: drbo.org/

I don’t know if these helps or not…
