Classic Lemony Snicket

I have been listening to Lemony Snicket's new audiobook, File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents.  

I don't usually listen to audiobooks, but this book is read by an all-star cast of 13 suspicious and talented people: Ira Glass, Sarah Vowel, Terry Gross, Rachel Maddow, Chris Kluwe, and Libba Bray to name a few.

For security reasons, the conclusions to the mysterious incidents are separated from each story (report). This way, it is impossible for the conclusion and the report to be in the same place at once.

Classic secret organization stuff.

Lemony Snicket, aka Daniel Handler, has some of the best word play and off beat humor. His wit is so charming and clever. We are big fans.

When Harry and Victoria got to meet Daniel Handler, Harry handed his book "All The Wrong Questions" over to be signed. 

"It's so nice that you brought your wife with you tonight," Mr. Handler said to Harry. 

"She's my sister, Victoria," Harry interjected.

"You married your sister?!" Mr. Handler exclaimed.

Classic Lemony Snicket :)
