Lent begins today and ends April 2.
A brief definition of Lent-preparation through prayer, Bible reading, "repentance", and "self-denial during the six weeks leading up to Easter.
To read more information about Lent:
Wikipedia
The Upper Room
Christianity Today
I've found several links for Bible reading during Lent.
Lifeway Women All Access has a list of six reading plans, plus two shorter plans: Six Reading Plans for Lent. 
A list of five devotional plans for Lent from Bible Gateway: Devotions for Lent and Easter. 
A free 98 page Kindle download from Ray Pritchard of Keep Believing Ministries: In His Steps. 
Lenten series from Ray Pritchard's blog: In His Steps.
The Common English Bible, 40 Day Promise.
A free resource for Lent, a study guide to download from Crossway. The guide/book is Behold the King of Glory by Russ Ramsey. 
Also from Crossway, a study guide from the book The Final Days of Jesus. This is a link to a 40 day Devotional reading plan. This features an awesome schedule of the last week/parallel Gospel presentation.
A Holy Experience, The Call for the Next 40 Days: To The Nations and People of the Cross.
A colorful Lenten series from Margaret Feinberg: Need Encouragement This Ash Wednesday. 
Lastly, Reliving the Passion: Meditation on the Suffering, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus as Recorded in Mark by Walter Wangerin Jr. The Kindle is $2.99. 

I've had a difficult time choosing a Lenten reading plan. There are so many wonderful choices. I settled on Reliving the Passion by Walter Wangerin Jr. But, I'm also going to read Ray Pritchard's, In His Steps. 

In addition, I found a notable list of apologetic reading for free from Truthbomb Apologetics. You will want to bookmark this handy page!
