Read Something Else: Collected & Dubious Wit & Wisdom of Lemony is the second book of quotes by Lemony Snicket. Many of the quotes are from previous published works, though some are original to the book. The book also includes artwork by fans.[1]


  • There are quotes from Snicket's two series, A Series of Unfortunate Events and All the Wrong Questions, as well as, some of his minor works, including from The Dark and The Bad Mood and the Stick.
  • This is Snicket's second book of quotes, the first being Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid.
    • Some quotes appear in both books, e.g. "Normally it is not polite to go into somebody's room without knocking, but you can make an exception if the person is dead, or pretending to be dead."
    • Unlike Horseradish, this book is not divided into chapters. While the book has an introduction, it is not a short story. While illustration in Horseradish consists of a single man walking, Read Something Else contains a variety of art by over thirty artists.
