Reading the Bible as Literature 2017

When I discovered that Rachel at Hibernator's Library was doing a year-long read of the Bible as literature, I knew I had to attempt to follow along. On this page I'm listing the planned reading schedule and hoping to link to all Rachel's posts. (with a few links of my own thrown in)
