More on Logos 5: Reading Plans

Earlier versions of Logos also allowed users to construct their own ‘reading plans’ but it’s a feature certainly worth highlighting once again.  Simply put, the ‘reading plan’ utility is one of my absolute favorite.  I’ve already constructed one to use to read the Hebrew Bible through in 2013 and one for the Greek New Testament as well.  But, given my absolute adoration of organization, I’ve also made one for TLOT and one for Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar (because it’s been my custom to read a Greek or Hebrew Grammar every few years just to keep things ‘in mind’ since grad school).

Anyway, constructing a plan is easy as pie, and so is correcting one, as will shortly be demonstrated.

First, one need simply go to the ‘reading plan’ section of the software (and all of the screenshots below should be clicked on to be enlarged) :

Second, pick the book from your library you want to read through:

Next, select your reading schedule:

Then just click ‘Generate’ and voila, there it is!

You’ll now see your plan in the left panel of your software:

But, oops.. I made a mistake, setting the plan for Gesenius to run for a year and I want, instead, to read it through in 12 weeks.  But that’s easy enough to correct, just open your reading plan and click edit and change whatever you like-

And now, having corrected my blunder, if I close the window and return to the main page, here’s what I’ve got-

Users can create as many different reading plans as they wish with as many different schedules as one can imagine.  Plans can be exported and printed as can any other segment of text one wishes and by means of the same method.  The possibilities are almost limitless and – again – this aspect of the software is just simply spectacular.
