You can read the Bible all you want, but without a relationship with God you will be easily misinterpret and be led astray with bitterness and contempt for the God you never knew.
You can have a relationship with God, but without reading the Bible it will be confusing and scary. You will hear many voices, feel many things, but will lack the knowledge of which path is right and will end up chasing other things based on your own understanding.
People tend towards one or the other, but both are essential. Do not mock those who excel at what you are uncomfortable with. Do not hide within the areas which you are comfortable. If you rely on one but not the other, your life will veer into areas you never expected. But relying on both will lead you to places you never thought you would reach.
