Celebrity Picks: Debbie Macomber's Favorite Reads of 2018

Chris Schluep on January 24, 2019


You will not meet a more caring or involved author than Debbie Macomber. She is a writer who is deeply immersed in helping others and giving back to the world, and yet she also manages to write a lot. In fact, she says that protecting her writing time is the most difficult part about writing these days. There are so many demands on her time that she needs to work extra hard to protect her writing time.

She does find time to read, though, and Macomber named for us three books that she read and loved this year. One of them was our #1 book of the year, so we like where she's coming from. Scroll down to see what else Debbie Macomber enjoyed reading in 2018.
