The Baby-sitters Club is Coming Back

Back in the days when I carefully saved my allowance to buy the new Baby-sitters Club books, talked about them with my friends during recess and bored my parents with my obsession, I never imagined there was a whole world of girls out there doing the same thing. The stories we read live inside us and they bind us together years after we have turned the last page. Last November, I hosted a Baby-sitters Club week for us to share those memories.

I was very happy to talk to Motoko Rich of the New York Times last week about my love for the Baby-sitters Club and my thoughts on the upcoming prequel and reissues. The article is very interesting and informative about the relaunch and also mentions my good friend Julie of Booking Mama.

That's so cool you were interviewed! I never read these, but I might have to pick one up to see what I was missing.

Even though the series was aimed for girls/woment, I as a BSC male fan enjoy it very much! The article is truly amazing and I love reading your post.

Thank you so much for hosting The Baby-Sitter's Club week back in November. Booking Daughter has been hooked (in a good way) ever since. Just today we found a stash of BSC books that we didn't already have!

I was obsessed with The Babysitters Club back in the day. The story from the NYT -- with your great quotes -- made my day! I just blogged about it, too: http://tinyurl.com/yl854nc

Happy to find another fan.
