  • Behind the Blog: This week's theme is It's All in the Numbers This week's topic:  Do you believe in lucky numbers, or certain number combinations/sequences? Do you have a favorite number? Any numbers that you feel are unlucky? In relation to books and media, what are some books or movies that focus on specific numbers?
