After 9 days, or 10% of the challenge, I am through Genesis, Exodus & Leviticus and into Numbers. So far I have been pleased with how I have been able to keep up. In fact, I am actually almost a day ahead. There was way too much in the first 9 days for me to fairly summarize what I was reading. Rather, I will share about my approach so far.
To me, variety has been key. I have read using the YouVersion app. I have read a physical bible. I have listened to a dramatized audio version. I have read/listened to at least 4 different translations. This has helped me keep enough variety to keep me from zoning out. Another strategy I have is to try to attack the reading in the first part of the day, especially using my commute to help by listening to the audio. Then I give myself persmission to read or listen to other books, podcasts, etc. later in the day.
I am only 9 days in, but I find myself looking for opportnities to get a chapter or two in. And, since I cant add more time to my day, I am spending much less time mindlessly on social media, which is probably a good trade off. Bottomline: so far so good.
