Worth of a Book

This evening I was reading my inspirational quotes app and came across the following.

“The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.”

By James Bryce quotes (British politician, diplomat, and historian, 1838-1922)

WOW! Pretty powerful!

What are you reading and what are you carrying away from it?

  1. Great quote and question? Have you read the Crown of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin? I’m reading the first of the series now. Love it. Although I think the only thing I’m taking away from it is that I’m acting even more like a Queen then ever before!


    1. I have not read the Crown of Thrones series. I love to read fiction, but don’t normally care for fantasy novels. Never read Harry Potter…can you believe that? As far as fiction goes I like mysteries, legal topics. I am currently writing a Christian romance novel…well, have been for some time…and in fact, why it is not finished may be a good topic for a blog! Currently I am reading Confronting the Controversies…for a study with my Community Group at church. Have a great day…enjoy the role of the Queen!


    1. You are far from an idiot!! I was looking up Crown of Thorns for the first ten minutes after I read your reply! I was so excited about my novel and then I joined a fiction writers’ group – most of their writing was dark – mine being a Christian Romanace novel….well you can imagine how well that went over…I allowed their comments to discourage me. But I am pulling it out of the ashes and trying again. I have a medical mystery that is also partly done. I have completed a devotional book, it is on Amazon. And have completed a short story – mystery – have not done anything with that. Love to write. Have the beginnings of a devotional for wives, one for hurting hearts…I need to pick one project and finish it this year!
