  1. With Anne Aulenta-Spira aka Medusa, I made a typo with the word "Very" for A Series Of Unfortunate Events. The word "very" shouldn't be in there. My mistake for not noticing that at first.

    1. Thanks Alex!
      I'm starting my trip through the alphabet now, so the updates you sent me this week should start showing up little by little over the next several hours!
