Bible Reading Plans

One of the things that we want to make available to everyone are some Bible Reading Plans.  Scanning across the Net, there are several - dare I say 'a plethora' - of plans available.  Here are some of those sites:
You can download printable pdf copies of Canonical (Biblical book order), Chronological, Historical, Old Testament and New Testament Together, and Blended)
This is a fun one that will send your daily reading scripture references to your email.  13 plans to choose from with several different translations available.  You can even double up on some (ie - OT over two years, NT every year, etc)
This is a website by guy who was inspired by Francis Schaeffer.  Not only does it include Bible Plans, but also includes information on how to study the Bible.
This site includes a plan that is based upon GENRE.  For example:  Sunday=Epistles, Monday=The Law, Tuesday=History, Wednesday=Psalms, Thursday=Poetry, Friday=Prophecy, Saturday=Gospels.  Good for those who may be a little ADD.  HA!  This is one of the first plans that I tried and enjoyed.
This is Zondervan publishing companies bible reading plans site.  This one takes into account where you may be on your journey with Jesus.  For example:  Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.  Also, includes a variety of different topical reading plans.
Here are some more downloadable plans by the One Year Bible folks.

Whew!  Have fun sifting through to find the best plan for you.  Imagine what great truths lie ahead for you as you read and study God's Word!!
