I have a dilemma and will follow your advice:
Exodus is not a very "interesting" book plot-wise. The first third is the story of the Exodus from Egypt, a more detailed account of the Haggada that is read on the first Evening of Passover (not in synagogues but at home with the family). The other two thirds are mostly dedicated to an extremely detailed and technical account of the religious rituals and the artifacts for rituals - for example the Ark of the Covenant (size, ornaments etc.).
So, we could either put Exodus on hold for the time being and continue straight to Leviticus and Numbers and then go back to Exodus and Deuteronomy, the more technical books. Or we could stick to the original order of the Books, with the aim of eventually recording everything.
Whatever your decision is, I will take the first project but it will take some time: first, my exams end in mid-July and until then I will, at best, manage to do the readers's test. Second, the original text is written in Biblical Hebrew. That means that in order to read it fluently, I will have to do some preliminary heavy editing - punctuation, replace some old vowles with the modern vowels so I don't get mixed up in the reading.
Would that be ok?
