if you've been looking for the perfect gift to give me this holiday season, look no further. i would like you to buy me Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is, edited by Lisa Wagner, Trinie Dalton, and Eli Horowitz. additionally, i would appreciate an advance copy of book the thirteenth by Lemony Snicket, though it may or may not have actually been written yet. even more additionally, as a personal-favor-to-yours-truly-cum-holiday-gift-to-yourself, i advise you to make for the nearest bookseller and buy Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures from the Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, a Man Named Lars Farf, and One Other Story We Couldn't Quite Finish, So Maybe You Could Help Us Out. if you can somehow resist the urge to finish the story on the inside cover and send it to new york while you await the promised prize of hundreds of little bottles, canadian dirt, lots of chocolate and the entire series of unfortuate events, you must be ebeneezer scrooge himself.
