"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

if you see count olaf, scream and run away

It's Friday the 13th and the Librarian and I are meeting at our local bookstore in a few minutes to pick up our copies of The End (with 20% off coupons - rock!). For those of you who choose to mock our love of children's literature, The New York Times has validated us today. Well, at least in the sense of acknowledging that 10-12-year-olds love these books. Because they're well-written. The Series of Unfortunate Events is fantastic literature, and lots of fun on top of that.

And we were so ahead of the curve by seeing Lemony Snicket on tour last October at the Texas Book Festival. So there.
