Is Reading the Bible a lost art?

I'm thinking of having two readings in services this year, one being the passage we will look at in the bible talk and the other being part of a big overview of the bible which is simply read and not commented on.  This is in part because of a conviction that we read relatively little of the bible in our services but it is the inspired and infallible bit in the service.  Yet interestingly some people have reacted with a weary shrug of the shoulders to such an idea, I wonder if that's because we aren't very good at reading the bible out loud.

I've come across an article in the briefing which helps us think about reading the bible aloud and how to prepare to do so so that it is engaging and alive, there is also on on-line interview and example of the Bible being read:
