In Others’ Words: Books
‘A book worth reading is a book worth buying.’ John Ruskin, English art critic (1819-1900)
The Wedding Dress, by award-winning author Rachel Hauck, comes out in April. I pre-ordered it months ago. I’ve been waiting to read this novel since Rachel first shared the story behind that beautiful book cover as we walked along the streets of Indianapolis during the 2010 ACFW conference.
I’ve recently pre-ordered several debut novels:
- Dani Pettrey’s Submerged
- Keli Gwyn’s A Bride Opens Shop in El Dorado, California
- Katie Ganshert’s Wildflowers from Winter
- Olivia Newport’s Pursuit of Lucy Banning
Why the pre-orders? Well, yes, I am supporting my fellow debut authors. I know how much I value the support of family and friends for my up and coming debut novel, Wish You Were Here.
But I also agree with the quote: A good book is worth spending money on. Books = investment. First, an investment of dollars and cents. Then an investment of time. And what do you get for your investment? A glimpse into someone else’s imagination. A visit to places you’ve never been before — or maybe a chance to revisit a city or country you miss. Entertainment. Education.
In Your Words: What’s the last book you purchased? What did you get for your money and time?
