I already have 64 CDs where the dialogue have differing voices with light background music that does not interfere with the message.

Have you thought about downloading a audio Bible. I love listening to it going about my day.

This is the first resolution I've made to read the bible through in one year. I'm into the Psalms (about half way through) so I can also concentrate on knitting some prayer shawls for church. Some of the books in the Old Testament are difficult to read.

God is good and without being steeped in the word regularly (preferably daily), we're missing a great element of God's day with us. I love that we have such a loving, compassionate, and merciful God. Jesus truly is the role model for how we should fashion our lives tempered with all the Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Need to figure out where I put my MP3 player. I was listening to it in the car as there were too many distractions in the house with the bugs need attention. Just have to look there and if not there then it is probably in my purse. Just can't remember, nor can I remember where I am at. Glad it keeps track for me.

I am still going slow - about 1 chapter a day. And I enjoy it because I am also reading through all the notes in my Bible (Life Application Chronological Bible)

You can download it free at this site. It has several versions although I am partial to the KJV.

I am currently in Job. I read 1-2 chapters a day. I so like the slower pace. This time it may take a couple of years to get through the whole Bible. But that is okay, as I am also doing a Women's Bible Study - though that will be done next week until Fall. I haven't decided what other study I will do in the meantime.

I just finished listening to the Bible through. I really like to listen as I am exercising and doing housework. I will start over again tomorrow. See if I can get through it four times this year.

I've been reading through the Bible chronologically this year. Totally enjoying it. I am using a "You Bible" ESV version app on my Nook. Just got through the life of David interspersed with the Psalms---loved it. Now starting with Solomon.

I am reading thru the Bible in chronological order. Years and years ago I got a reading plan out of a Christianity Today magazine which I used successfully once before, so I decided to follow it again. Today I read Gen 29 & 30.

It's not a matter of slow or fast. It is a matter of keeping God's word in our hearts.

I find that after the intense studying in Faith Bible Institute, I love just listening and putting it all together with what we have been studying. It helps me remember what we have learned. Just trying stay up with the courses has been challenging. Only one year left.

I finished Gen 11 today. I am enjoying the slower pace I have set. I am reading all the notes in my Bible and meditating on the passage.

I'm following the Biblegateway plan. It is sent to my email each morning. I read it there and then again later in my Bible so I can get the background from the notes there! Reading both the old and new testaments at the same time, divided into 365 readings. I have done this before but have not completed the whole year. This year I will! Never started on Jan 1 before.

Have listened to all of Genesis and through Exodus 5. I forgot to turn it on when I came back in. Lots of sorting things today.

Exactly! That is what I want too, to focus on God and let the rest fall into place...

I started my devotional, and there are several Bible verses with each reading which I make a point of looking up. I also tend to read a verse or two extra to see what the context is. I don't like not knowing the "whole story"! Especially if the verse is in the middle of a sentence.

Listened to Genesis 1-15 while I did my strength training and 20 minutes on the bike!!

Love all the activity here. My goal for the team is to try and encourage all of us spiritually and the rest will fall in place.

I have "The Daily Walk Bible" - KJV
It is laid out in 365 days of reading. I just have to go to that particular day and read. It has all kinds of wonderful helps and insights for me.
If I forget my regular Bible for church, I can take this one. Its a regular Bible! I love it.

I got the Life Application Chronological Bible before Christmas. I was going to follow a reading plan, but as I began reading this morning, I got so absorbed in the notes and reflected and meditated on just the first 3 verses, that I decided I am going to go on a slower pace and let the Lord lead and spend more time listening to Him. I have a tendency when on a reading plan to be very anal about it and if I don't get it all done on the day I am supposed to I berate myself. I want it to be a time of learning and worshiping the Lord. If it takes my one year or 5 years to read through this Bible that is okay. But I will be reading daily!

I don't have a specific plan to read through the bible, but I like the idea. I really just want to get back into the word daily so when I saw this thread it was like a sign! God said, here's your accountability! emoticon I have been telling myself for ages that I need to read daily but then I get off track... So with this thread I'll work on posting at least weekly to say a bit about what I've been reading and learning.

I did buy myself a devotional book based on hymns, so will start there. I'll do the readings with it and see how I like it...

Happy New Year all!

Let's not forget to feed our spirit as we are learning to correctly feed our bodies.

Do you have a plan for reading through the Bible?

What did you get our of the Word today?
