I assume that since the Office of Readings is not part of the one volume, you are asking if the Office of Readings is available by itself elsewhere?

There are several different websites:

Take your pick.

What you could do is use the Psalter (starting on page 1785).

For the first reading, you may:
- rotate through the Biblical readings for the proper season (pages 1870-1941) or
- use a Bible and follow the two-year cycle for Biblical readings on page 2064.

The first option limits your readings but needs nothing more than the book itself. The second requires the use of a Bible. I would suppose any Catholic-approved Bible will do.

For the second reading, you may rotate through the non-biblical readings for the proper season, starting on page 1942.

If it's a Sunday outside of Lent, Feast, or Solemnity, you recite the Te Deum after the Second Reading, printed on a prayer card which should have been included with your Christian Prayer.

Or you can use a tablet like an iPad or an Android device and use the iBreviary application or the divineoffice.org site for the readings. I would not use Universalis.

In any case, only the four-volume edition provides the full office of readings complete with verses and responsories.

Really? That's the same one I have. I didn't realize it had any of the Office of the Readings in it. I guess I'm so accustomed to flipping where I need to flip that I haven't noticed it.

One volume "Christian prayer" has a limited amount for Office of Readings.

It is "Shorter Christian Prayer" that does not have anything but morning, evening and night prayer, on the four-week cycle..

The listing for the Biblical readings are in the back of Christian Prayer.
Since the non-Biblical readings are limited, I substituted inspirational books and spiritual classics. I read a chapter, or a few pages, each day. Examples include St. Theresa's Story of A Soul and St. Augustine's Confessions. I found it easier to remember what I read than reading in a single setting or two.
