I love the reading plans for non-Biblical books. They keep me on track with my reading goals. I wish that there were options included to read 1 Chapter (article/day). This would be particularly helpful for devotional-type books that aren't marked by date but still are designed to be read at a one-chapter-per-day clip.  The following screen shot is a good example of what I think should be included

In Piper's Godward Life, designed to be read in 120 days, I made a reading plan encompassing all of the pages between chapter 1 and chapter 120 and I set it to be read in 120 days. Because each capter isn't exactly the same length, the reading plan generator set me up to read less than a chapter some days, more than a chapter on others, and never just one chapter. 

There have been many times when I just wanted the ability to mark out a plan based on chapter divisions. (one chapter every 2 days, one chapter per day, etc).

I'd like to have that option too. I'm not sure how Logos would do that, I know they have chapters identified in books, and you can click to get to the start of a chapter, so you'd think maybe it's possible. I'll be curious to hear a response from someone on this one...

I fully agree. It would be nice for resources like Calvin's Institutes, as well. The reading plan I generated turned out even worse: it gives me a couple of title pages to read at the beginning - a very slow start - and the reading before the final one is chapter 19 and 20 of book IV, which keeps me busy for 72 pages! Marking the first sections as read and adjusting the plan from there did not help.  

A plan based on chapter divisions with possibly setting a maximum number of pages (Calvin has some long chapters) would be a great solution.
