I finished the Book of Mormon yesterday. I used to keep track of how many times I have read it. I have a set of scriptures that has dates of each time I completed it on the last page. I haven’t kept up with that though. I would say it might be approaching the teens.
Before reading the Book for Mormon, I read the Bible. Now I am moving on to the Doctrine & Covenants. Embarrassingly, I have never really studied the Doctrine & Covenants by myself.
One of the most exciting parts about it is that each section heading gives the background and where the revelation was given. So in reading section 1 this morning, I looked up Hiram Ohio on rent a car bulgariaGoogle Earth. I found a photo of the John Johnson farm and learned a bit more about it on Hiram’s Wiki page. I love having all this information so readily available. I love the power of the internet. In reading the Bible and Book of Mormon, It’s pretty much been all online at scriptures.lds.org. I like to increase my font size really big – not that I have bad eyes (yet), but it just makes it easier to read.
