Book Meme for somefink to do

It always seems like LJ memes are different from other memes, and that I'll be stepping on toes when I *noink* them, but this one looked fun, so I'll just snatch this discretely.

Day 30 - What book are you reading right now?

Because it is the third today, I'm going to do the first three. 

Day 1: I could have done with a thousand more in A Series of Unfortunate Events. I mean, Mr. Snicket ended them so beautifully, but at the same time, I think I would trade my end of series hour long cry fest for another book or two. 

If I ever have kids, those will be some of the first books I read to them, because I want my children to have dry humor, a sense of irony, and to not suffer the slings and arrows that come with wide-eyed optimism. 

And while it's not a series, I would just like to take this opportunity to tell vampires that, unless they're Eric Northman, they all need to stop assassining the minds of America's youth. (Eric Northman, it must be noted, may do anything he likes to America's youth, so long as I'm included)

Day 2: This series: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skulduggery_Pleasant_(series)

Skulduggery Pleasant is the shit. Again with the wry, raw humor of young adult fiction. Every character in these books is essentially a vessel for completely ridiculous, wise-cracking humor. 

Also, skeleton detective. It's just too brilliant to be true.

Day 3: eh. I'll do this later. Remind me to do this later. Right now I have to see if I've actually read an entire book in the past twelve months.

Fucking right? I've started a lot of books, but I haven't necessarily ended any of them.
