I just received the Library of Congress catalog number for Grow Your Own Cigars. It goes on the copyright page.

"Library of Congress Control Number:2019917726"

There is something mind boggling about that number. It is constructed using the year of the request (2019 in this case) to which is appended a serial number of all the assigned numbers for that year to date! We're still in October, yet my request was number 917,726 so far for this year. So, well over a million new books will be published in the US in 2019.

It has been said that Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was probably the last person on earth who knew everything in science, math, literature, philosophy and the liberal arts. Since then, there has been just too much stuff published for any one person to even be aware of all of it, much less to have read and understood it.

Fanfare!!!....My book will be number 917,726 for 2019 in the US. (With better luck and timing, I might have gotten the coveted 20191000000.)
