I did it a couple of times. After I finished high school, I used to commute to and from post-secondary school by train - an hour each way - and used the time to read the Bible (instead of studying my course material which would have been a better way to spend the time.... ) and was able to finish the reading in less than a year.
In my second year of studies, I took an English course called The Bible As Literature (figuring it would be a breeze, which it was, since I passed with 99.9%) and was required to read the Bible (including the Apocrypha) from cover to cover again, but this time using the Revised Standard Version.
I always meant to re-read the Bible again afterward, using other translations, but never seemed to be able to bring that to fruition. However, I looked into Judaism after leaving the JWs, and read the Torah and Talmud on my own between 1998 and 2001.
We'll see what comes next.
