It takes just 70 hours and 40 minutes to read the Bible through "at pulpit rate," and aloud! It takes only 52 hours and 20 minutes to read the Old Testament, and just 18 hours and 20 minutes to read the New Testament. The longest book, Psalms, will take just 4 hours and 28 minutes.
No less, is it wrong to read the Bible cover to cover?
It's not wrong to read the Bible cover to cover, in fact it's a good way to read it. You can read the Bible anyway you want or choose.
Also, how do you read the Bible front to back? After reading the Gospels, then go back and read the longer Books of the Prophets, and then after that, finish the rest of the New Testament. Once you've done that, then go back and do the books that you missed in the Old Testament.
Brief, how much should I read the Bible a day?
That should be no more than 12 minutes per day. However, you may wish to spend some extra minutes pondering God. So I'll recommend 15 minutes reading every day. And always remember: when reading the Bible, don't take everything literally, as it's very likely that whoever wrote it was being metaphorical.
Should I read the Bible from beginning to end?
You should take the time to read it through. Initially however I would read through the gospels. It is THE central book that Christianity is built around. I would recommend that every single Christian read it cover to cover.

It is true that the Bible is arranged in very approximate chronological order. ... These concepts help to give some guidelines to the recommended order for reading the books of the Bible. But, more importantly, they affect how the entire Bible is read.
There is an indefinite number of individuals who have read the entire Bible, myself included. It is comprised of 66 smaller books. 39 books that make up the Hebrew Scriptures or 'Old Testament', and 27 books that make up the Christian Greek Scriptures or 'New Testament'. I have read it many times.
Why You Should Read the Bible Regularly First, the Bible shows us God's character and provides us God's revelation of himself to his people. ... Third, regularly reading God's word reorients our thinking so that we can grow in maturity, which is part of the Christian calling (Ephesians 4:14–16; Romans 12:1–2).
The gospels are not biographies in the modern sense of the word. Rather, they are stories told in such a way as to evoke a certain image of Jesus for a particular audience. ... The four gospels that we find in the New Testament, are of course, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
