But reading at your own pace works too. I would rather have you read it with attention and absorb it than to rush through your reading.
You might also choose to LISTEN to an audio production of the Gospel of John. Bible Gateway offers several audio versions that you can listen to online for free.

What to look for:
Why you should read John :
Nowhere is the gospel more clearly presented than in the Gospel of John. If you are looking for a way to share the gospel story with a friend. John has some classic passages that God's servants have used for generations, such as chapter three, five, and ten. Become familiar with these passages and you will never be a witless witness. (81-82)
