Friday Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader and the Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice.

So Friday Book Beginnings you choose the book you are currently reading or the one that is closest to you and share the first few sentences. For the Friday 56 you simply turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader and share a sentence or two that you enjoy. Then just add maybe a synopsis about the book in case others are interested. That’s it!


78408Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography by Lemony Snicket

Published on: May 6th, 2003

Goodreads | Amazon | Indigo

Synopsis (from Goodreads): A Warning from the Publisher:

Many readers have questions about Lemony Snicket, author of the distressing serial concerning the trials of the charming but unlucky Baudelaire orphans, published under the collective title A Series of Unfortunate Events. Before purchasing, borrowing, or stealing this book, you should be aware that it contains the answers to some of those questions, such as the following:

1. Who is Lemony?

2. Is there a secret organization I should know about?

3. Why does Lemony Snicket spend his time researching and writing distressing books concerning the Baudelaire orphans?

4. Why do all of Lemony Snicket’s books contain a sad dedication to a woman named Beatrice?

5. If there’s nothing out there, what was that noise?

Our advice to you is that you find a book that answers less upsetting questions than this one. Perhaps your librarian, bookseller, or parole officer can recommend a book that answers the question, “Aren’t ponies adorable?”

Book Beginning: Why was Mr. Snicket’s death published in the newspaper? (Who wrote this?)

Page 56: Character 1: I love eating prunes. They’re so squishy, chewy and delicious. I am always happy when I eat yummy prunes, unless they are trapped between my teeth.

Character 2: (nodding in agreement) Me too. When that happens I must send for my husband, who can usually – if he’s not busy – help get them unstuck.

Character 1: (taking out a notebook and pen) Where does your husband live?

Character 2: With me at Cherry Gum Lane, across from that prune museum we visited once.

Thoughts: This is the first I am opening this book. It looks like a collection of photos and diary entries and letters. Interesting!

What do you think? Have you been watching the Netflix series based on his books?
