Dear Reader,
 
I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to read this book because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put this book down instantaneously, because of all the books describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, THE MISERABLE MILL might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumbermill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log.
 
The pages of this book, I'm sorry to inform you, contain such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons.
 
I have promised to write down the entire story of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection.
 
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Book number 12 was Lemony Snicket’s fourth book, The Miserable Mill.

More of the same. I feel like I’m starting to get a little bogged down in them, so I think that after I finish the next one, I’m going to start alternating them with some other audio books. I think I’m coming down with Baudelaire overload.
