words of wisdom?

Looking for a quick read with some humor, some irony, and perhaps a dash of nonsense? Look no further. Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Hadler) offers us HORSERADISH: BITTER TRUTHS YOU CAN'T AVOID. This is not the book for young fans of the Series of Unfortunate Events crowd. However, the kids who grew up reading the books and are now well into their teens will appreciate the aphorisms and tales offered up by Mr. Snicket.

A few samples to whet the appetite:

Temper tantrums, however fun they may be to throw, rarely solve whatever problem is causing them,.

It is not polite to interrupt a person, of course, but sometimes if the person is very unpleasant you can hardly stop yourself.

No matter who you are, no matter where you live, and no matter how many people are chasing you, what you don't read is often as important as what you do read.
