Bible Reading Plans for 2016

Here's some Bible Reading Plans for 2016 from Ligonier Ministries. Surely one of these will work for you! Let's do it in 2016.
Many Christians take the beginning of a new year to evaluate their Bible reading habits, and then change or begin a Bible reading plan.
For your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of Bible reading plans for you to choose from. Maybe in 2016 you will read more of the Bible each day. Perhaps you’ll slow down your reading and instead spend more time considering what you read. Whatever it is you’re looking for in a reading plan, you should find it below:
