I like the NIV and the NLT would be my second.

I am currently reading the Bible cover to cover and I chose to use the NIrV for children. I know it sounds juvenile, but I really like how it simplifies things. I will later follow up with other versions, but it would be a tragedy if I were to miss out on something. Reading the Bible and living your life the best way you can through your own interpretations is my way of creating the best personal relationship with GOD.

But as we know, not even the King James version was translated word for word from the Hebrew. King James had it translated and left out things he disagreed with... if only I read Hebrew.

BTW, I'm currently half way through Isaiah. Anyone else read it from beginning to end? And if so, what did you think before and after?

There is a "The Message Remix" out now that is supposed to be pretty good also.

I am an old skool KJV reader. When I first started getting back into church and reading I was reading the Living Bible because it was just like reading a novel.

When I do my studying I use the KJV MacArthur Study Bible and a Literal Hebrew Greek Translation.
