Can't Resist a Challenge

Not a lot's going on in my life currently. Hiding out indoors a lot due to hot weather.

The next 40 days are going to be intense, but enjoyable and hopefully educational. I'm part of a challenge to read the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price in 40 days. This can be done, but will involve about 11 chapters of reading total per day (6 for the Book of Mormon, 3-ish for the Doctrine and Covenants, and 2 for the Pearl of Great Price). The Pearl of Great Price repeats five times during this.

If you'd like to join in, there are two places to go: the LDS.net forums or the Watchmen on the Tower social network on Ning.

After that comes the New Testament in 40 days. This will be a little lighter, averaging 6.5 chapters/day (I don't stop mid-chapter, so the amount per day varies a little).

Looking at the amount per day for the first challenge, I'm thinking the Old Testament in 80 days (about 11-ish chapters/day) might actually be doable. We shall see, after the other two are done.

I'm looking forward to this Scriptural feast.
