Scriptures in chronological order

Last year, I read the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. That’s about 6-7 pages of scripture reading every day, which isn’t too bad. And I decided to read it in roughly chronological order by chapter. The list I used isn’t perfect at all. Different chronologies of the Bible exist and I think there is a more updated chronology of the Doctrine and Covenants as well, found at the beginning of the book. But this may be a good start if you are interested in reading the scriptures that way.
