Author Trading Cards - Collect Them All!
Yes, the good souls at Powells Bookstore have come up with an item that may well trump the whole literary-action-figure market on book-related randomness. Author trading cards. And since this is a children's literary blog, are any of them children's authors? Yes! For a limited time only, you too could own the trading card of Daniel Handler, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Why would you actually want to do this?
Because Mr. Handler is worth collecting. He'll never make it onto my Hot Men of Children's Literature list (for silly stupid selfish reasons), but I love 'im just the same. Now I'm off to get his card.
