Morning Meanderings… 2999 – What Is Crazy Cool About This Number?


Greetings children of earth!  And of course any Shadow Hunters, Vampires, Werewolves, Wizards, Witches, Warriors, Fairies, Elves, Pixies…. I really am an equal opportunity blogger 🙂


And apparently… need more coffee if I am going to be this goofy in the morning. 🙂


Ok…  the number.  That number is the number of posts I have written since Book Journey began.  It’s interesting… I did not notice when post 1,000 and 2,000 went by.  Yet, awhile ago I notices I was about 100 posts away from 3,000.  Since then I have been trying to keep an eye on it so I could do something for 3,000 (after all… it will take a while to get to 4,000!)  I was going to do a super cool countdown (or count up) and not tell you what I was counting…but of course, life was busy… I forgot to count.. and suddenly yesterday I realized, like a baby that is due… 3,000 was arriving this weekend if I was ready or not.  🙂

I already had a discussion question I have been tossing around to post today so please stop in later and meet 3,000, join in the discussion, and a special giveaway because it is 3,000 posts.

3000 posts.

Holy smokes right?

Moving on…

In bookish arrivals… here is what came into my home this week:




Yours For Eternity by Damien Echols and Lorri Davis I forgot why I wanted to listen to this one and then I just read the synopsis again and went… oh yeah….)



Ride Around Shining by Chris Leslie Hynan



The Story Of Land And Sea by Katy Simpson Smith


I am hoping to work on a couple outdoor projects today but right now our sky is “iffy”  if not outdoors, then I will be working on a spare room today prepping auction items for Wine and Words.  🙂

  1. Congratulations on writing so many posts. Keep writing and I’ll keep reading. My Sunday will be a travel and Fierce Reads event and still more travel. I’m excited to meet 4 authors who wrote books I liked. Have a great day!

  2. Since I have eleven blogs, my individual blog numbers, both with followers and posts written, do not seem that impressive…LOL. I added them up one day and it was much better!


    1. Laurel… 11…. you make me swoon. I have tried a couple of times (and failed a couple of times) to maintain a second blog…. I just can’t do it… all my online book love goes here. 😛

  3. I am trying to stay home and let my daughter and her husband have a day alone with my new grandbaby! It is hard, I am having withdrawal. Listening to audio while doing some laundry before I go outside to sit on the deck and read.

  4. WOW! Hitting 3000! Quite the accomplishment, Sheila! AND, I forgot to mention I noticed you’re reading Dream Boy 😀 Just recently read a review on it on the “Spirituality in Children’s Literature” blog. I LOVE the cover!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
