(shakes head, chuckling)

In all seriousness, I think the best "easy to read" translation is The Message, put together by Eugene Peterson over a nine-year period from 1993 to 2002. The only drawback I've found is that some editions don't have every verse numbered, just paragraphs.

Darn, I can't see what you posted.
I'm reading a book right now called, God is Disappointed In You. At first I thought it was kind of too cutesy, but the more I read it the harder I laugh. It's making fun of it, but not in a mean way, just showing all the contradictions. I actually love the Bible even though I am atheist, but I have to admit, it is kind of strange (probably why I love it).
