When I woke up yesterday morning, I had two more books to read before 2017 was over. I picked a small book about William Wilberforce called A Journey Through the Life of William Wilberforce by Kevin Belmonte. It was only 120 pages and it had LOTS of pictures.
He is such an inspirational figure whose life had a immense impact on the lives of millions of people. Among other things, I learned that his sons wrote a book about him. I am adding that one to my 2018 books to read list – The Life of William Wilberforce by His Sons.
And, since I had less than an hour before our friends arrived to celebrate New Year’s Eve with us I had to choose book #40 carefully. I chose a book that I used to read to my sons when they were little: Jamberry by Bruce Degen.
Very fun! My two youngest boys (now 12 and 15) were good sports and allowed me to read it to them (just like old times!).
My first new book started in the New Year is the updated and expanded version of Evidence Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell. We’ll see how it compares to Jamberry! I’m excited about my reading in the New Year.
