My daughter and I just finished reading the final book in the series (which has 13). I highly recommend these books, as they tell a great story, keep you at the edge of your seat...and have an incredible ability to broaden your child's vocabulary. The books are $13.99 each at Indigo..(although I have found a couple at the used book store on Queen St.) but worth every penny!!

The books are about three orphans (Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire) who's parents have perished in a fire. They are heirs to a fortune which they are receive when they become of age. During the course of a couple of years, the children are handed off to numerous guardians, of whom seem to be worse than the previous. The whole time they are being tracked down by the evil Count Olaf, who is seeking their fortune...no matter what he has to do to get it!!

I watched the Movie. Was good.

I'd look funny buying the books, given my child free status :)

Haha..

The books can be enjoyed at any age...even without children!! However, I'm sure you could offer free babysitting services....there may be some SINGLE women with children who may enjoy the books?? 8)

Ohhhh yeah. I learned one can use kids to meet women (by watching 2 & 1/2 Men) :) :)

Seriously. I read the "Little House on the Prairie" series and reread all the Anne books as an adult. Kids books can be fun :)

I read it around 1980. You'd have been fairly young :)
