Speaking hypothetically - a word which here means "not hypothetically at all" - how much of a crime against collectors everywhere would it be to remove a copy of the original 2003 run from its never-opened plastic wrapping?
(I mean, I'm pretty sure I'm going to do it regardless. I want to hold the book in my hands, read the notes and admire the picture, and I wouldn't sell it anyway. I'm just wondering if that means I'm destroying humanity's hopes of ever having a complete collection of Snicket editions in Mint condition)
Well, the book has been rereleased before now, it was even available as an ebook for a time, and the Author's Notes were included in a special TBB edition in the U.K., all within the last few years. But my own opinion is simply that a book is made to be read, not to be kept in shrinkwrapping for all eternity.
Germes: I think inviting new people to join us is a good idea.

Germes: I think Bee did something similar at some point in the past.

Germes: And even earlier, there was a plan to stick 667 flyers in copies of ASOUE in bookshops. At least one person did join us because of that.

Sherry Ann: Didn't someone get kicked out of / asked to leave a bookstore for putting 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books?

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.
