Question

I am writing my testimony into book form.

Answer

Thanks for the question.  Books take many forms most books are measured in pages lowest probably 64 and typical is 256.  It also depends on what you want to do with the book like selling it and what margin you are looking for.  Check out www.parapublishing .com for some great free info from Dan Poynter typical number of words on a page in 11 pt are 250 of course poetry is different.  The word count would apply to a 5.5X8.5 or 6X9 book.  If I can be of further assistance let me know and good luck.
