Daniel Handler Does Essays

I forgot to mention in my party post that among the YA (or YAish) books my friends discussed Friday evening was the A Series of Unfortunate Events series. Two people didn't like the books, one person loved them, and I didn't get them. I loved the idea behind the series, I just didn't quite get the joke.

I was reminded of all that today when I read MONEY TALES
Author Daniel Handler aka Lemony Snicket talks about the last taboo
, an article about Handler's essay, Wining, in an anthology called Money Changes Everything.

Since I enjoy reading about Daniel Handler, I very much regret that I didn't get into his kids' books more than I did. And now I've found out he writes essays, which makes him even more attractive as far as I'm concerned. If you can't get hold of Money Changes Everything, you can check out another of Handler's essays,Adjusted Income, a variation on the same subject as it turns out.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
