How to Read the Plan on the Web:

Once you have navigated to the day’s readings (instructions found above), read the first passage until you see “Keep Reading ______”. Click on the reference to continue to the next passage. Continue to click the “Keep Reading” references. At the end of the last reading for the day, instead of saying “Keep Reading”, it will say “Mark as Done”. Selecting this will check-off the day’s reading so that tomorrow you will see the correct reading.
