For Your Reading Pleasure

We change the format from time to time, but the goal is to at least one time each year to read every word of the Bible together as a family.  In 2011 we started our reading an old testament passage at breakfast, Psalms and Proverbs at lunchtime and a New Testament passage at dinner.  That took us through the Old Testament once, Psalms twice, Proverbs 12 times, and the New Testament twice.

As of Christmas, several Kindles have joined our Bible reading time, which has several advantages and disadvantages.  One being instant access to Strong's Concordance, Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary and the Matthew Henry Commentary.  There are some negatives, too.  Not the least being the absence of a good old fashioned leather and paper Bible.

When you finish a book on your Kindle a window pops up asking you to rate it.  We finished Revelation again on New Year's Eve.  Everyone rated the Bible with five stars.

After you rate a book, the Kindle gives you another window with recommendations for future reading based on your preferences.  We all got a chuckle out of this heading:  "More books by God."
Blessings for a New Year of growing closer to our wondrous creator as we commune with Him daily in the Word.

  1. How funny - we're using my Kindle for our daily Bible reading too! We are using the One Year Bible. We check the Bible reading for the day and then use our "normal" Bibles. :)
