Amount per day: About a chapter a day. It is more if the chapter is short. In my Bible, it is a page and a half. Just reading it takes about five minutes (but it is short so you can LINGER in verses that really "hit" you as you read!).
The goal is a smaller portion of Scripture everyday so you can mull it over and chew on it a while. We can talk about how to meditate on the Word too and how to dig more deeply in study in passages where you want to understand more than what you learn from just reading it.
Process: I will post on the Bible Book Club Blog on a daily basis. There I will give background info (if needed), reflections, possible applications, and a prayer. There is opportunity to give comments on the blog so everyone can read them and respond too. I hope it can be interactive.
ALSO, I would LOVE it if any of you would like to do the "post for the day" with your own background research, reflections, prayer, application! Blogspot has the capacity to allow more than one contributer on the blog. It would be great to have other "contributers for the day (week, month, etc)"! There will be times when I will be on vacation and not near a computer. So, I may even be asking for this. I am not expert on the Bible! So, don't be shy. This is a time of mutual accountability and encouragement!
Monthly Live Book Club: The discussions are face to face in my home for anyone who wants to come. :) It will be the first Monday of each month starting in February where we will talk about Genesis up to the life of Joseph. It will be a book discussion just like our book club. :) Just sharing what you learned from your reading. They are OPTIONAL though. No pressure to come, but I would love it if you did! Someone mentioned "online chat," but I don't know how to do those anymore!
Bible Reading Format: I am following the The Two Year Reading and Prayer Bible
except we won't be reading the New Testament daily readings until Year Three.Amazon has eleven used copies starting at $5.24. You don't have to buy the Bible and can just follow the schedule posted on the blog. I like the prayers at the end of each reading in this Bible though.

Jan Genesis 1-35 (Discuss first Mon in Feb)
Feb Genesis 36 - end (Discuss first Mon in March)

There will also be reading Psalms 1-72 and Proverbs 1-15 that will be "sprinkled" throughout the year to break up the history reading.
Year Two: Wisdom Literature and Prophets from Job to Malachi
Feb Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
