Editor’s note on 01/03/2012: The beta is closed and anyone can sign up for the reading plan emails. Head over to the newsletter sign up page and look at the “Reading Plans” section!

You can now receive your Bible reading plan via email!
When we unveiled our new Bible reading plans last month, the only ways to read them were online, via RSS, or with iCal. Today we’re rolling out a public beta test of a new feature: sign up to have your daily Bible reading sent to your inbox, in the version and translation of your choice.
Select the reading plan and Bible version you want, enter your email address in the field, and click “Subscribe.” You’ll receive a confirmation email shortly; just click on the link provided in that email and you’re done! (Should you wish to unsubscribe at a later date, instructions for doing so are contained at the end of each daily email.)
Please note that the email Bible reading plan feature is still in beta—it’s working, but there might be a few hitches as we fix bugs and improve the service. For that reason, we’re limiting it the first 1000 people to subscribe. As soon as we’re ready to launch, we’ll lift that restriction and open it to everyone. Your feedback is vital, so don’t hesitate to send us your thoughts, bug reports, and general feedback. We’ve answered some major questions about the service in our Bible Gateway FAQ, so check there first if you’ve got a question about the email reading plans.
So go try out an email reading plan—it’s never been easier to read through the Bible!
