The Easiest Way to Read Through the Bible In a Year


A new year, full of new beginnings! And, of course, New Year Resolutions.

What are your New Year resolutions? Lose weight? Exercise?

One resolution that I’ve had for years is to read the Bible through in a year. But I can never keep up with the reading plans. I fall behind and can never seem to catch up. And then I get discouraged. And give up…

The sad thing is that I love to read! However, reading is next to impossible with my rambunctious preschool boys. When I’m finally able to relax…zzzzz!

However, last year, I discovered Audible.com!

I began “reading” audiobooks as I drove (alone) to/from work, running errands, on day trips for business, etc. In fact, my list of books I’ve read has grown tremendously.  Check out the list of books I’ve read on GoodReads that includes best-selling parenting books, The Whole-Brain Child and Bringing Up Bebe. {Check out all these other parenting titles available on audio.}

And then I found Zondervan’s NIV Dramatized Audio Bible! It is WONDERFUL!!! I’m learning so much about the history of God’s people – in its entirety.

The best thing about Audible is that you can get a free a 30-day trial that includes one free monthly credit you can use to download the entire Bible (all 75 hours of it).  You can cancel any time during the trial month before your credit card is charged $7.49 for the next month. After 3 months, memberships will begin renewing each month at the regular Gold rate of $14.95 (less than a hardcover book).

I absolutely love “reading” audiobooks! How about you?

Do you “read” audiobooks? Have you ever wanted to read the Bible through in a year?
