Today is a Most Dire Day Indeed + an Unfortunate Giveaway

Today is a most #DireDay thanks to Harper Collins Children’s Books. Yesterday I received three boxes of Lemon Snicket’s THE BAD BEGINNING which was terribly unfortunate for me. But today things are much, much worse.

Because, today, I will be sending this most unpleasant of books out into the world. And I will be spreading my misfortune to YOU.

If Friday the 13th wasn’t enough of a reason to stay indoors and hide yourself away, perhaps knowing that Lemony Snicket and his most wretched book THE BAD BEGINNING will be hitting the streets and taking over a city near you will suffice. And if not? Well, you have been warned. A copy of this most unfortunate book might find its way to you.

But even if you thought you were safe by staying indoors, away from these pitiful books being dropped, you were mistaken. Because there is no escaping this bothersome book.

See? I told you it was a most #DireDay!

While the largest group of these terrible books will be spreading their misery throughout my city, I can’t help but want to share the misery with those across the country and around the world.

And so I will be giving away 30 copies of this most unfortunate book here on the blog – up to 10 of which I will be willing to share internationally. Yes, how unfortunate a day it will be for you!

So if you would like to win a copy of this terrible book, THE BAD BEGINNING, enter for your chance in the form below. And hopefully you, too, will get to experience this #DireDay for yourself.

A Most Bothersome Book

Dear Reader,

I’m sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune.

In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket
