Don't just read and study the Bible. Study ABOUT the Bible. You'll find that exercise to be far more interesting and rewarding. Here are some suggestions:
Read books written by Bart Ehrman, Randel Helms, and other qualified university level Bible scholars who break down the details of the New Testament to define what is "historic" and what is "traditional." Most of the New Testament (if not all) is based on oral traditions and books written at least 100 years after the last of the apostles and all actual witnesses to any events were gone.
Another great book (you should find this the library) is [Isaac] "Asimov's Guide to the Bible." Isaac Asimov was a prolific writer of science fiction, fantasy, popular short stories and historic texts. Even as a child he was interested in the history of his people (he was Jewish) and researched everything he could about them. He interviewed Jewish historians, rabbis, Talmudic experts, and other specialists in middle-eastern history. In this book he takes a dispassionate point of view (if someone born Jewish could ever be "dispassionate") and looks at the hard facts of pre-Christian era Israel and Judah. Right from the very beginning you realize that much of what you have been led to believe about the Bible is either not true, or has been so distorted by tradition and "false history." There are some amazing revelation about where the real Garden of Eden would have been (Iraq? not likely) and the source of the very name "Israel." Did David and Solomon actually exist? What about Moses and Aaron?
Whether you buy any or all of what these historians write about, that is up to you. But when you are done, I guarantee that you will have a better appreciation for what the Bible really is.
Then read "The Magic of Reality" by Richard Dawkins. A very enjoyable and easy read, it gives you an entirely new perspective on life, science and history.
You will realize that the Watchtower doesn't have a clue. They are printing magazines and books that have no more value than "Alice in Wonderland" or "Grimm's Fairy Tales."
I'm glad you are making the transition from someone who is "searching for the truth about the Bible" to someone who is "finding the truth."
