Read The Bible in a Year?

One well deserved comment or criticism of Catholics by Protestants is that we tend not to 'know our Bible.' Not only does this leave us at a disadvantage when it comes to discussing our faith with others, it means that we are missing a great treasure of teaching, and tradition. The Bible is the history of God's people - who wouldn't like to know 'where we came from?' Yet the whole Bible is a daunting prospect.

A reader's question sent me looking for a great site and a great idea. "Would you know a place on the internet that offers a "read in a year" calendar for the Bible?"

I found several resources, of varying useability. This:
Catholic Doors, READ THE ENTIRE HOLY BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
and this:
The Coming Home Network: Downloadable PDF.
and this:
52 Week Bible Reading Plan A clunky but cheerful site.

Here is an example of a typical reading schedule:
