December is NaBoMoReMo - National Book of Mormon Reading Month
26 November 2007 23:10

December is NaBoMoReMo - National Book of Mormon Reading Month. The challenge is to read the entire Book of Mormon during the month of December, and to blog or otherwise share your experiences in doing so with the rest of the blogosphere, and the world in general.

I plan to take the challenge. Ben Crowder's excellent Reader's Edition of the Book of Mormon will come in very handy for this sort of thing. It's a version of the Book of Mormon without the usual chapters and verses, and as such reads more like a novel.

The concept behind NaBoMoReMo is borrowed from NaNoWriMo, which is "all about the magical power of deadlines. Give someone a goal and a goal-minded community and miracles are bound to happen. Pies will be eaten at amazing rates. Alfalfa will be harvested like never before. And novels will be written in a month." And in this case, hopefully, faith will be strengthened, testimony will grow, and Christmas will be more about the the Savior, and less about the shopping and the stores.
