 I found that the story of Elijah was quite exciting to read, and not too
 difficult to construe. Try 1 Kings 17 thru 19 for starters. Then try Joshua
 chapters 1 thru 11.

 Prose is "easier" than poetry. But you'll find time spent unravelling
 some of the Psalms very rewarding.

 1 Samuel is rather difficult to tackle on your own. So is Job, but for
 different reasons. Leave them for later.
