No, there isn't. It's just fun is all. Some people have a small, personal celebration when their car odometer hits milestones or a palindrome; we can have our little joys, too.

Ah! I had a party when my car was paid off. And when I retired. And when I turned 70. I guess there were some little joys in between and those are fun. In fact, I mentally celebrate little milestones every time I complete anything. And I love celebrating everyone's Libriversary. :D

Regarding YouTube Stats for February:

Its really interesting to me that some of the most popular books on the YouTube channel are nonfiction books that were not recently published.

'History of London', 'Away in the Wilderness', 'Europe in the Middle Ages', 'In the North Woods of Main'. I did not find any of these titles among the 200 books in the Internet Archive LibriVox collection that are currently most popular there.

Any ideas on why they got so popular on YouTube?

I think there are some people that just stream them to listen to every night to go to sleep and leave them going all night kind of like a sound machine. Same with that Report on Unidentified Flying Objects book.

The new language is Palatine German, but it's debated whether that's really a new language that warrants its own language code, or just a dialect. :hmm:
