What kind of meds? As my middle knuckles are getting worse, I'm sure I'll be introduced soon enough.

Methotrexate, at a very low dose. Cheap and with me it works.

Methotrexate

At lease in a couple months I'll be able to get back to mountainbiking and skateboarding.

Sounds like a great commitment. However, I was glad that I selected a chronological reading plan when I read the Bible through.

Apologies. I guess the useless fact actually is that I've never read it through cover to cover, beginning in Genesis. Never.

It's easy to lose interest and drop out if you try to just push on from beginning to end. I don't have any recommendations, but I'd try to find a plan that makes the Bible make more sense. Many studies involve reading a bit from the OT and NT each day.

I set the "read through it in a year" goal a few years back and actually made it happen. I took the number of pages between the beginning and end and divided by 365. On any given day, I knew exactly how far ahead or behind I was in terms of pages. In the past, I'd gone with the "topic" or "chronological" approaches, but they all seemed to vary the amount of time you had to read per day; those definitely didn't work for me.
