Read NT in greek in a year

Working on a "Top books" post for 2012, and reading goals for 2013, but until then, for all those who have learned a little greek but let it slip, consider reading through the New Testament in Greek this year. Here are a couple of helpful posts on how to approach it, along with tracking calendars:

Set a timer for 20 minutes and read all you can for the day's segment on the schedule. Once the timer is up, read quickly through the remaining verses, reading the greek without translating (except for words you already know). This approach, over time, expands ones ability to read greek, even though it feels like you're not getting so much out of it at first.

If you're thinking of taking on this challenge, I'd love to hear about it in the comments. Might help bring a little accountability and camaraderie for both of us.
