Five tips for reading

1. Read what you can.
Don’t get discouraged if you fall behind. Keep at it, even if you don’t make it all the way through each day’s reading. If you have trouble keeping up, listening to the audio version can help.
 
2. Read every day.
Plan on reading five days a week, Monday – Friday. The pace is a little intense, but reading large portions of Scripture is also incredibly rewarding. (And remember, you only have to keep this pace up for eight weeks.)
 
3. Be fully present.
Avoid distraction while reading. (Turns out we’re not that good at multitasking.) Instead, devote your full attention to the text.
 
4. Read the book intros.
The Books of the Bible includes brief introductions or “invitations” to each book, unpacking the context and literary structure of what you’re about to read. Trust
us, they’re well worth your time.
 
5. Don’t worry about the parts you don’t understand.
The goal is to read big, not to catch every detail. You can always go back and study a specific passage in greater detail later. For now, take in the big picture; let that be your focus for the next eight weeks
