Later, while reading the next book, not related in any way to the previous one, I came across the damn word again! And then the next book had the word in it. No theme or anything tied the books together, just that I happened to be reading them. 3books in a row, near random choice, and to have the same fairly rare word, the first time I remember ever seeing it? Doe god like sheleighlies by any chance?

Never seen that spelling before - most people seem to spell it "Shillelagh". (Apparently after the town where it originated.)
