Tomorrow Looks to be a Most Dire Day
Much to my surprise, not one, but three boxes of Lemony Snicket’s THE BAD BEGINNING showed up at my doorstep. How unfortunate for me! Tomorrow is definitely going to be a most #DireDay thanks to Harper Collins Children’s Books and Lemony Snicket.
Most dire indeed.
And I thought the fact that it was Friday the 13th was the only thing unfortunate about tomorrow. How wrong I was.
It will be so dire, in fact, that not only will I be dropping many of these copies of THE BAD BEGINNING at various locations in my area, I will be giving many away here on the blog for a ONE DAY ONLY giveaway.
I was warned that I would be one of the unfortunate bloggers should I accept this book into my home. But clearly I did not heed that warning and now I have 95 copies of THE BAD BEGINNING to pass along to 95 incredibly unfortunate readers. Yes, it seems that one unfortunate box was missing one of these most dire books and so the misfortune has already begun, even before tomorrow’s #DireDay.
If you have not yet had the misfortune of meeting Lemony Snicket or learning about this first book in his A SERIES OF MOST UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, you can read all about Lemony Snicket on his FACEBOOK page, on his WEBSITE or by checking out this most “bothersome book” on GOODREADS.
Feel free to stop back tomorrow for my #DireDay giveaway. But be warned, if the book’s description is accurate – and I believe it to be most accurate – then the book you will be entering to win will be “extremely unpleasant.”
And be sure to keep watch for the #DireDay tweets on TWITTER tomorrow, because some of these pitiful books may be falling in your area.
