Yesterday, I was watching The Talk and their guest was Numerologist Glynis McCants. Here is a clip of her talking about the special meaning of today’s date: 11-11-11. Plus, the hosts get live birthday readings.
I found a few books from Good Reads with the number 11 in their title too!
Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho

As I look back over this post, only today can I talk about Howard Taft, numerology, The Talk and books altogether.
Is today special to you? Do you have a special day or event planned for 11.11.11?
Happy 11.11.11 Mocha Girls!!
