I shouldn't need to post a reminder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daf_Yomi  
Wikipedia is not the best source of information but it does give us a starting point [then we find other places to look to verify what we see there]
“With 2,711 pages in the Talmud, one Daf Yomi cycle takes about 7 years, 5 months.”

Daf yomi (pronounced dahf YOH-mee) is an international program to read the entire Babylonian Talmud — the main text of rabbinic Judaism — in seven and a half years at the rate of one page a day. Tens of thousands of Jews study daf yomi worldwide, and they are all quite literally on the same page — following a schedule fixed in 1923 in Poland by Rabbi Meir Shapiro, the founder of daf yomi, who envisioned the whole world as a vast Talmudic classroom connected by a global network of conversational threads.
The next Daf Yomi cycle begins January 5, 2020

Thanks for pointing this out.  Makes reading the Bible in a year look tame.

Any particular reason why it doesn't integrate with this Talmud edition? https://www.logos.com/product/10356/the-babylonian-talmud-original-text-edited-corrected-formulated-and-translated-into-english

Jan Krohn:

It seems there are (at least) two different indexes for the Babylonian Talmud. This resource uses an index called Babylonian Talmud, citing Tracts and chapters, whereas Daf Yomi (it was the same with the older 13th cycle in Logos) uses an index called babtalmudfolio which seems to refer to the pages of the Talmud edition used for this reading.

It should be possible to build a linkage table between those two, or maybe something usable is out on the internet that gives the index in a way that can be used for Babylonian Talmud. So far I refrained from buying Neusner's Talmud edition, but maybe it even has both indexes.

A PB from a two-column table (YMD index and Babylonian Talmud reference) should be doable - and compiled as a type:lectionary would even appear as a tile on the homepage.

Yes, his Babylonian Talmud edition has the following indexes:

  • Babylonian Talmud
  • Babylonian Talmud Folio
  • Mishnah
  • Volume/Page

and his Jerusalem Talmud edition has:

  • Jerusalem Talmud
  • Jerusalem Talmud Folio
  • Mishnah
