2016, Books, Booktober, Reading

Booktober Challenge Post 14 & 15

I procrastinated so much yesterday that I ran out of time to post. I was just so tired by the time I got home, I couldn’t be bothered to move, not that I had been particularly active but I’ve had a virus. For the past week I have had a chest infection which has also included ulcers in my mouth and a sore throat. My chest though feels a little clearer today but I still have the other two. Well, that enough of feeling sorry for myself.

The two books I am going to highlight today are completely different…

Personally I don’t like telling everyone they should read something because everyone’s opinions differ. There is one book though I do think everyone should read and that is the Bible. Everyone has an opinion on it and those that often make the most noise have never read it and take portions of scriptures that they want to use out of context. I am a firm believer of researching a subject before having an opinion on it.

I have always had Faith and daily bible reading for me is part of my life and to be honest there are times when I don’t know what I would have done without it. Understandably many people are put off by the size of the bible and about being able to understand it. If you take a little piece of it, at a time, like a jigsaw, eventually it all comes together. Do you know if you read about 3 to 5 chapters a day you would have completed it within a year? If you don’t want to invest in a bible, you can read it for free online. JW.org has The New World Translation online and also on an app which you can download. No hidden clauses or commitments. It is also put in away that is easy to understand. It has also been translated into loads of languages. Parts of it are also in audio form so you can listen to it if reading it feels to much of challenge. It is the best online bible I have found.

FACT: Did you know JW.org is the most translated website in the world. It has been translated into 537.

Now for something completely different….

No Miranda, it is not just you.  I cannot put into words how much I identified with this book, it was scary!! I honestly thought I was the only person, who as a teenager was overly concerned with spontaneous combustion. It is very rare that a book can actually make me laugh out loud but this one made me laugh until tears streamed down my face. If you enjoy Miranda’s comedy then you will enjoy this book.
