    deserve to be minded

    Hello
    This book deserves to be minded.
    What does minded mean here?
    People should think about the book
    People should be interested in the book
    Can I say John deserves to be minded or this usage is not correct
    Thank you so much

    Not a teacher.

    It means the lessons or advice or instructions given in the book should be followed. ("kept in mind")
