    I don't read them anymore, but I absolutely loved The Baby-Sitter's Club books. My parents tried to get me to read other books (with more history, etc in them), but I wouldn't touch them. They eventually caved and let me read these books since it at least kept me reading!

    I was and still am an avid reader. I loved Babysitter's Club, Boxcar Kids, R.L. Stine (Fear Street and Goosebumps books) and Laura Ingalls Wilder books. My middle neice loves to read and I'm considering seeing if I can get her some of my favorite books for her next birthday.

    I would sit on a Saturday afternoon with my nose in a book all day and finish it before dinner!

    LOL...Dating you? How about dating me...since I was already grown when Babysitter Club books were popular.

    For me, it was Nancy Drew,...Trixie Belden...but my two favorite series were Little House (didn't care for the TV show though), and Ann of Green Gables. I still read those, and plan on having the little guy read at least some of the Little House books. I'm sure he'll enjoy Farmer Boy!

    I loved those books. They are actually what got me into reading! I hated reading before I discovered those books! I wanted to start my own club!:p LOL Though I never actually did much babysitting when I was younger. Go figure! :)

    I have seen some of these out in the library during storytime. I picked one up and it is comic book style like Jughead and Archie- Wasn't thrilled - loved the regular old chapter books, stil have most of the collection up at my mom's house. Loved Boxcar and Sweet Valley High too. Maybe they are re-redoing it? I hope.

    Becky,

    Had to jump in so you wouldn't feel lonely. Have no idea who the Babysitter Club is but I sure know Trixie, Nancy, Laura, Mary, Ma & Pa. :D

    I LOVED mt Babysitters club books. I have no idea if I saved them or not. They may be in my parents attic. I also loved R.L Stein and those mystery books. Gosh that brings back memories!:):)
