    Do you read these all at the same time? As in one sentence from Remember... then one sentence from Sgt. Rex and so on...?

    Currently I'm going through the NIV bible, currently in Ezekiel. I'm also reviewing Living Language's Intermediate French, and testing out the trial versions of the Biblical Language Centre's online Greek and Hebrew courses.

    Not quite in that granular a manner. The theological works generally constitute my commute reading material.
