Many days my reading took an hour. I will not kid you, I don't have an hour of uninterrupted time to read on a daily basis. While I did cut back my reading of other books during this time, I still had some I wanted to read. By February, however, I pretty much lost all time to read without explanation. Rather than just toss my ambitions aside as unattainable, I have toned my goals down a bit. Our church participates in a 1-year Bible reading plan. I found a plan that is pretty much exactly the same on Youversion.com (the app I read with on my iPod). I "cheated" the app to make it start me where the church is as of today: first, I subscribed the plan, which would start me out at Genesis 1:1 today; next, I determined where I was supposed to be and marked every passage as "read" up to today; finally, I clicked "catch me up" which would reset the plan to start me at the last not-completed day. The result is it appears I started reading on January 1st. Technically I did read those passages...about a month earlier. Currently we are in Numbers and Mark...so I will have the opportunity to catch any passages I missed.
