Delightfully Palindromic

The Rank number of my book at goes up and down like a pogo stick on steroids, a phenomenon I'm told is perfectly normal. The best I've seen it is in the 100,000's, a range I've also been told is pretty good. The only reason I point this out is that at this moment, it reads the same backwards as it does forward:

Jeez, you sound like Dad. When he left here after supper last night, he told me that his car's odometer was almost at 66,666. (The devil's mileage, I told him.) So I had to worry that he was so busy watching the odometer that he wouldn't pay sufficient attention to Beltway traffic. Luckily, my worries were unfounded (as is usual when it comes to Dad) and he made it home safely, probably to call you & tell you his big 66,666 news which may have triggered this blog entry.

Okay, now I just had to check, and so I now have good news and bad news. The bad news is that this:


is the ranking for my book.

The good news is that's NOT my mileage.
