We made….the….LIST!

One of my obsessive compulsive neurotic tendencies is my book-checking ritual on Amazon. I go to www.amazon.com, type in my name in the search bar and wait for my books to appear. Then I click on each one, checking the sales ranking and hoping there’s a new review posted by a dear, thoughtful reader. Usually, there are no new reviews and the sales rankings display numbers so large it’s difficult to fathom how many books I’d have to beat to improve my numbers. 

Today when I checked, though, I was pleasantly surprised to see a Listmania! list created by J. Whitford of Falls Church, VA, featuring Bookworms Anonymous! I’m not kidding–check it out here: J. Whitford’s Listmania List. I tried to contact J. Whitford but couldn’t find an email listed on the Amazon profile. I found a comment regarding listmaking–one of my favorite pasttimes. I think J. Whitford and I might have a lot in common.

So, thank you, J. Whitford, and if you happen to read this, please know that I appreciate your public acknowledgment and praise of my book.  I’m so glad to know people in book clubs are reading my work and enjoying it!

Thank you, thank you and thank you.
