I'm excited to read....

Minka! which means somethings along the lines of "This reminded me of my beloved cat who used to sneak into my arms and was called like that..."
- I was not very fond of Aunt Josefine, I have to admit. Who will be in charge for the three Baudelaires next???

I received the first 6 books in this series in the mail today from Mary-T. I look forward to reading this series. Thanks NMReader for sharing and thanks DrSlump612 for giving this book so the spiral could continue! I will journal each book as I finish it. Wow, it looks like all of these were stalled previously by others!

I'm so glad there are such generous bookcrossers out there who are willing to share these books with the rest of us!

I finished this one last night. Mr. Poe is beginning to bother me a bit. Nobody would really be that ignorant about what is going on with the orphans and Count Olaf.

Even though these books are very different from the movie, I can't help picturing the characters as they looked in the movie as I read--especially since I just watched it again with my daughter yesterday while she was out of school on Spring Break. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series, which I do not think were included in the movie. It seems to have been primarily based on the first 3 books.

Since I have the first 6 books in my possession, I will mail them all together when I am finished reading books 4-6.

I received Lemony Snicket book 1-6 yesterday@Key West, Florida, USA. Thanks to ladybug74 for sending me, thanks to other BCers who replaced lost books of this series, and thanks to NMReader for hosting this bookspiral! I have never read them because I didn't grow up in the US. I am exciting to read them and smiling with anticipation.

I enjoyed reading this book although Mr. Poe and Aunt Josephine frustrated me sometimes. Speaking of "frustration", Lemony Snicket wrote, "Frustration is an interesting emotional state, because it tends to bring out the worst in whoever is frustrated. [...] Frustrated citizens tend to execute kings and queens and make a democracy". It is an interesting observation indeed. I didn't kill anybody or damage anything, so I was not so frustrated, I guess.

Yea! I have looked forward to reading the rest of this series after getting the first book and enjoying it so much! Thanks so much, Beckster, for sending books two through five. I was trilled when I got the package today. I am so happy to be part of this bookring. I will try to finish these in a timely manner.

Well, I am thrilled to have joined this book ring! I think I have enjoyed this series just about as much as any book I have read.
If you've seen the movie, this book is right in line with the story of Aunt Josephine, but just as usual, the book is better than the movie. Count Olaf makes me mad and depressed at the same time, but I love those Baudelaire kids, especially Sunny! I jus wished she'd bite his leg off and be done with him already! ;-)
Great book!!!

Finished this book in two days once I got started. It's not a happy tale, but I surely enjoyed it. That Count Olaf, what a horrible person! I really feel so bad for the poor children. Although I didn't feel bad for Josephine. I'll be sending this book along to Deepswamp soon!

The Wide Window is a children's novel and the third novel in the book series A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. In The Wide Window, the Baudelaire orphans are sent to live with their third guardian, a distant relative, Mrs. Anwhistle, otherwise known as Aunt Josephine, who lives on a house overlooking a lake.

The children are fantastic!

In a series of very fortunate bookcrossing events, this book arrived just the day when I visited last time my old flat to return the keys for good. To be read in a balcony of the new flat... Thank you Deepswamp, wonderful package again and many bookmarks indeed!

Inspired from the movie, I awaited The Wide Window most. The house on a hill was so great. Maybe as my expectations were so high, the book was somehow heavy to read in the beginning, and Aunt Josephine wasn't as charming and funny as Meryl Streep. However, towards the end of the book it got really excited, and made it a good read again. I like that these books are so small (though tend to get thicker?), and great fast read between other books - something complitely different...

#3 better than #2! This is like a little snack- pick it up and finish it!

Starting to feel a bit predictable, but still I did manage to finish it. I liked the imagery in the movie better too-

Thanks for sending it round!
