This past week I did something I've never done before: I finished reading through the whole Bible. "Reading" is probably not the best term, since much of it was done in the vehicle via ESV MP3s.
There are a lot of things I could say at this point, but I'll limit it to one. Going through the whole thing after all these years was like going back and reading a novel that you'd previously only read excerpts of or even just Cliff's Notes. You had the main thrust, yet you had missed out on so much. The richness, the depth, the sweep - the sheer grandeur of God's plan, from beginning to end. And even with that, we still only see in a glass darkly.
My advice: do whatever it takes to do it.
Even if it means buying CDs or MP3s to listen (especially helpful for me for Leviticus, Numbers, Isaiah, and Revelation).
Even if it means getting up a bit earlier every day.
And even if it means you don't make it in a year (it's been two since I bought my audio).
