5,000 reviews? Holy crap!

HOPELESS has just hit 5,000 reviews on Amazon!  After only three months of release, that’s freaking amazing.  Thank you so much to everyone who decided to leave a review after reading that book.

It also got me to thinking about how I heard once that 1% of readers actually take the time to review books.  5,000 readers is 1% of 500,000 people!  So I checked and sure enough, Hopeless has just surpassed half a million ebooks in worldwide sales.  Half a million people have read that book!


A freaking.



That’s a lot of people.  More people than I know or will ever know or will ever meet.  You would have to meet half a person a day for a million days to meet half a million people. That’s like 125,000 whole puppies cut into fourths. That’s like the population of Las Vegas.  Or Sacramento.  It’s like if you counted all the limbs of 125,000 people, assuming they still have all their limbs, you would have half a million limbs.  It’s like 499,000 more people than fans of Nickelback. It’s like a quarter of two million people, which is how many people it takes to make half a million people if a whole lot of them die.

My point is… half a million people!

That makes me feel really nervous.

I think I need to give away my very last, unreleased galley copy of HOPELESS as a big thank you to all you HALF A FREAKING MILLION PEOPLE that read this book.  Lucky for you, I don’t have half a million followers, so your chances aren’t bad. Just comment below with whatever the heck you want to comment with and you just might be the lucky winner of the last galley copy.  <3

  1. I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on
    a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And after this post 5,000 reviews? Holy crap! | Colleen Hoover. I was excited enough to leave a thought🙂 I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead people?😛 And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you list every one of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  2. Congrats! Such a wonderful book! Once I started the first page I couldn’t put it down.I would be honered if u picked me! Defently going to look for other books u have written and read them🙂

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  4. There’s certainly a lot to know about this issue. I like all the points
    you’ve made. – FYI : if you need complete information about Milia RemovalMilia Treatment, please visit Milia Removal Blog

  5. Somebody necessarily help to make severely posts I would state.
