There are many bible reading plans out there. You can read through it in a year, chronologically, by topics and many other ways. One of the best reading plans for general reading of the Bible is the three or five circle plan. The Bible (for the sake of simplicity) is broken down into 5 sections:
1. History - Genesis to Job
2. Wisdom/Worship - Psalms to Song of Songs
3. Prophets - Isaiah to Malachi
4. Gospels/Early Church - Matthew to Acts
5. Letters/Application - Romans to Revelation
Reading a 3 or 5 circle plan simply means to start with the first book in the "circle" and then read to the last book in that circle. When you finish the last book, start over in the circle.
Decide if you want to do the 3 or 5 circle plan.
The Three Circle Reading Plan - 3 chapters of the Bible a day
Start at the beginning of Psalms, Matthew, and Romans. Read one chapter each day until you complete each circle, then start over.
The Five Circle Reading Plan - 5 chapters of the Bible a day
Start at the beginning of Psalms, Matthew, Romans, Genesis, and Isaiah. Read one chapter each day until you complete each circle, then start over.

I would get a bookmark for each section or write down the chapters you read each day so you'll stay on track.
