Life just got too hectic for the approach I was taking. When I started I was living alone in a different city, so I had all the time in the world. Then I moved back home and I had a full time job and family and friends and it just got a bit too hectic. I plan on continuing reading it when I get more time.
My advice is to read The Message (which can be found on biblegateway.com) which is an easier translation to follow. Also read the annotations in the Skeptic's Annotated Bible (skepticsannotatedbible.com). Some of the stuff on the SAB is kind of grasping at straws, but it keeps tabs on a lot of the continuity issues in the bible.
