Book Depository Competitions



  • blog image

    The long awaited new series by Lemony Snicket is frankly none of your business. In a faded town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organisation nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read. The first book, 'Who Could That Be at This Hour?' which is the first question in the series All The Wrong Questions will be available only to the general public on the 23rd October 2013.

    About the author: Lemony Snicket had an unusual education and a perplexing youth, and now endures a despondent adulthood. His previous published works include the thirteen volumes in a series of Unfortunate Events, which sold over 60 million copies and failed to improve his gloomy mood.

    #1 prize: a Lemony Snicket attaché case, a poster and a signed copy of Who Could That Be At This Hour?

    #2 prize: a complete set of the A Series Of Unfortunate Events books

    #3 prize: a copy of Who Could That Be At This Hour?

    Just answer the question below to be in with a chance. The competition closes on Wednesday, October 31, midnight GMT.

    Update -- winners: 1. Nishani Mabotuwana 2. Tracy Nixon 3. Joke Veitch-Vaneechoutte
