If you read one book this season, make it something else.
The holiday season is a time for rosy cheeks, sweet dreams, and warm family gatherings. It is not a time for disastrous fires, deadly vipers, cold cucumber soup, and hungry leeches. Sadly, the first three books in Lemony Snicket's best-selling Series of Unfortunate Events, The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, and The Wide Window have been put together in one miserable box. For countless generations, Christmas has been a time of joy, joy, joy. Not anymore.
