I disagree on the bible being boring and repetitive. The Old Testament is made up of purely history so there are a lot of family lineage lists. The New Testament focuses on the testaments of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, which all tell the same story albeit in a slightly different way and different things can be taken from each.
I would (at first) focus on the Psalms and the Proverbs to find answers and wisdom. Also make sure you have a NIV (New International Version) of the bible which is easier to read and actually contains a guide to the bible unlike the old fashioned relics you often find in hotel room drawers.
If all else fails, attend an Alpha class where you can ask as many questions as you want!
