Operation Actually Read the Bible--Update #1

What's a challenge without accountability!? Becky has asked her participants in the Read through the Bible challenge to post monthly updates on our progress. So this is update #1 or what will most likely be many, many updates.

First, I devised my plan as previously mentioned. At the rate I am going it will take at least 3 years to accomplish my goal and that doesn't count Psalms. I am counting the books I studied last year as well as thus far in 2009.

So, I have read: James, Ephesians, and Acts.
I am currently on Chapter 16 of Genesis and plan to finish it this month. Our Pastor is teaching through Nehemiah between now and Easter and as I mentioned before, I am reading along with him each week. We are on chapter two of Nehemiah.

My hope is that by Easter, I will have finished Genesis, Nehemiah, and most of Exodus.

I'm in Genesis too. I like the slow-and-steady approach :)

Yes, I'm in Genesis too. It must spark some interesting thoughts to be reading in more than one book at once, like you're doing.
