[A Series of Unfortunate Events] May 2017 Posting Challenge: We have reached our month's goal of 13,000 POSTS! [SUBMISSIONS FOR CELEBRATION OPEN!]



... to each book
13 chapters
... to this series
13 books
... a movie released in 2004
13 years ago
... premiered on Netflix
13th of January 2017
... renewed for a second season
13th of March 2017


Dear Volunteers,
In May 2017, here at A Series of Unfortunate Events forum, it will be our goal to reach two milestones, first crossing 10'000 posts, but then because it is a number with great meaning, our ultimate goal will be 13'000 posts!


How we can reach our goals...
1. Participate in special events such as a series read for the books and watch for the television show as well as the movie (see below);
2. Vote in our Lemony Snicket Quote Survivor (Coming May 1st);
3. Explore the many discussion topics already available to you;
4. Suggest new discussion topics;
5. Any other ideas?

Suggested events:

Book Series Read-Along

Have you never read the tales of the Baudelaire orphans? (Save yourself!)
Has it been a long time, is your memory failing? (Keep it that way!)
Have you become so familiar that all joy in life has been lost? (You poor dear...)

Well, we suppose some things are inevitable... As such, you may wish to join us in reading and/or discussing each of the 13 novels in the series as penned by the elusive Lemony Snicket...
We provide for you a suggested schedule for discussion. If you are unable to keep up with it for one reason or another, by all means, go at your own pace!

2. The Reptile Room - May 4th
3. The Wide Window - May 6th

TV Series Watch
Oh dear, what's this now? They've gone and brought the unfortunate tales of those orphans to television? Well now, we suppose you might be interested in that sort of thing, far be it for us to tell you what to do! (Look away... Look away...)
But if you're feeling particularly adventurous, we offer you a chance to watch and discuss this episodic incarnation among like minded people, every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month of May...

Along with the day's book and episode discussions, we invite you at your own discretion to take in the 2004 movie adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events. Let's make this our greatest challenge day!



If you wish to participate and possibly win a custom title for having reached the ultimate goal of 13k posts, please sign up below!
As unfortunate as our dear Baudelaire orphans may be, the rule here is the more the merrier!

Does everyone have access to the books? Or remembers them well?
