A Most Unfortunate Giveaway!


Dire Day is finally upon us and books are dropping all over!
 (I do hope you have an umbrella)

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1)
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

I would give one to my nephew I loved reading these in school and I think he would too!

Michelle said...

I would give the other copy to one of my friends. Most likely one that doesn't like to read. Maybe Lemony Snicket will convince them that reading is fun. If they don't want it then I'll pass it on to my library.

One book is torturous enough, two times the misfortune are certainly not what I would want in my household. I would very fastly deliver a copy to my Aunt Mildred whom I've never met that decided to pay my house a visit just this morning and keeps eyeing my mother's jewelry with a peculiar glint in her eye.

Besides entering this giveaway which will ultimately will result in extreme misfortune for myself, the only other unpleasantness that has occurred today include a very ferocious dog, vinegar flavored doughnuts, and boisterous man named Hank.

I would give the extra copy to my neighbors son I think. He is 12 and loves to read. I love giving books to him.

Holly said...

I would give the other copy to my younger brother. Thanks for the chance to win!

My sons school library will be getting a Dire Day indeed.

Tricia Copeland said...

Well, although I do not wish to pass the dire misfortune on to others fortunate enough not to have entered this giveaway, I would probably share the other book with a younger friend of mine, named Amber.
