How to Finish the Bible in Two and Half Short Years

I have another blog and I had to reference it to see when I originally started my read-through of the Bible (January 2005).  Well, I finally finished August 3rd (Genesis through Revelation).  I read the NIV version this time.  It had been a goal of mine for awhile, and it did give me a sense of accomplishment.  I am certainly not claiming to be an authority, but I do feel like I have a better grasp of the Word at this point.  I took several months-long breaks during this time, as I would get sidetracked by other reading material.

Near the end, Revelation really becomes enthralling, like something from Tolkien.  I literally couldn't put it down once I got to the final three or four chapters.  That was a different experience for me.
My friend Alan (, who works with me now and who was a pastor for many years (25), says that the professors he had in seminary that really knew the Bible inside and out recommended reading it completely every 2-3 years.  It may sound strange, but now that I have finished, I am anxious to start again, although I am considering reading it in chronological order this next time (Job is supposed to be the oldest book of the Bible, not Genesis).  I don't necessarily want to buy a "chronological" version of the Bible - I am hoping to find a good reference chart online.  Let me know if you have any ideas.
