I have finally managed to get my Lenten Reading Plans web site back in shape, and I have also updated the plans for this year and going forward (I used to include the date with each day in the PDF document; now I just have the day number and that’s it, so they’ll work for any year). The web site includes a link to one plan compiled by someone else, and three compiled by me.
These four plans offer you a daily reading from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday – so 47 days total. We might not have to do penance on the Sundays of Lent, but it is good to keep up our other disciplines, such as good spiritual reading, on those days! Click the following image (or use this link) to go to that web site:
Right now I only have these plans available in PDF format. I would love it if Someone Who Knows How could help me convert them to ePub and Mobi formats also, so that folks who want to use them on a Kindle, Nook, etc. can more easily do so. The idea would be to have them organized in chapters by date (so we would have to update it every year), so it could be more easily tracked using an eReader device. I know that these devices have “remember where I left off” and bookmarking features, but since not everyone uses those various features, and since device syncs sometimes get mixed up, it’s best to have it in a chapter format arranged by date, in my mind.
So if you are experienced and skilled in working with these formats and can help (free of charge and with no publicity here), please drop me a line and let me know. I will provide you with the Word files so you can convert them.
UPDATE: The e-book project is on hold for now. Need more time to do it right.
And another thing: If you know of any new plans that are out there, please let me know so that I can add them to my list on this page. As you will see, there is already one plan on there that was compiled by someone else. Perhaps more have been created since then.
Finally, please help me get the word out about these plans. They’re a convenient way to do some additional spiritual reading from edifying authors during Lent, and have been very popular since I first posted them in 2010. Use the sharing buttons below to post about them on your Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest, or send via email. Thanks!
UPDATE MARCH 15, 2014: I moved all the reading plans to pages on this blog, and updated the above links accordingly.
