The gospel of Mark is quick and fast-paced and is a good place to start. Then you might want to go on to the gospel of John, which focuses on the things Jesus claimed about Himself. Mark tells about what Jesus did, while John tells about what Jesus said and who Jesus was. In John are some of the simplest and clearest passages, but also some of the deepest and most profound passages. Reading the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) will familiarize you with Christ's life and ministry. Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/start-reading-Bible.html#ixzz2bQYOZ8HW
Try the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament. I couldn't really get into the bible with Genesis but Luke really got me reading. I eventually read the Gospels of Mathew,Mark, and John as well. All of these tell the life of Jesus Christ. While these 4 basically tell the same story, each one holds new things to learn.
starting with the Christian Greek Scriptures is a good start but to understand why these things took place you must read the whole Bible.(Joh.17:3) from Genesis to Revelation we find out Jehovah God's purpose for mankind and how we are involved in that purpose and why our Lord, Jesus Christ sacrificed his life in our behalf.(Joh.14:6,1Ti.2:5,6 ) There is much more to it than forgiveness of sins ,though this is of immense importance. it means reconciliation with our God and the prospect of everlasting life.(2Co 5:20,) jw.org

The long time tradition is to start studying the Bible in Leviticus. Leviticus is the Law, the foundation that everything is based on. After you learn Leviticus, you can go back to Genesis and read in semi-chronological order. But starting in Leviticus is a very good idea. As I was saying, that's the old school order of books that young Jewish kids used to study the Bible. This ordering has fallen out of favor somewhat, but it's a great way to study the Bible.
Why not start with the gospel accounts? They're very interesting. Proverbs is an excellent book as well. It's really helped me through ALOT. Just make sure you read the entire thing in order to thoroughly enjoy it! (2 Timothy 3:16)
