Reading the Bible

I have tried many times, but failed, to read the Bible in its entirety. I was recently married, and while I have brought my husband to God, he isn't as enthusiastic about Christ as I am. Well, that sounds bad. Let me put it like this, he hates organized religion. He finds it impossible to find one denomination of Christianity that fully complies with his beliefs on the matter. I feel the same way, too. However, I don't stick to just one. I grew up Methodist and am now visiting a Presbyterian church down the road from where I've just moved. Anyway, I am rambling. My point is that I have recently brought up the topic, with my husband, that we set aside a time to read the Bible each day. After a little hesitation he said that sounded fine. I'm hoping we grow spiritually towards God and closer to each other during this daily devotional. We haven't started yet. As I said before, I've tried to read the Bible in its entirety in the past by starting in Genesis and going straight through. That didn't really work for me, and I've been told by many people that it's best if you don't just go straight through. If I don't just go straight through, how do I choose which part to read? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry this post is a bit rambly. I find it hard to compose my thoughts on this subject.

There is a weekly booklet called "Our Daily Bread" that usually has some helpful suggestions regarding reading the Bible. I'm sure that your church may offer them, or you can go to their website to check it out. I'd google the website for you, but right now, my internet has been wacky. Anyway, I hope that helps!
