According to me, this is ambitious considering the number of pages and the amount of time Mathew has to read. He’s too busy trying to sell the last of our hogs for Easter. However, he is not a speed reader and in no way compares to others, such as Albert Mohler.

Also, all the above links are affiliate links in case any of you like buying things off amazon. Sorry Jackie Lea, Truest didn’t make Mathew’s list this year. I guess it didn’t fall into his categories.
