Loved #1! Ditto with Nancy Drew and BSC!

Alicia Gregoire said...

I totally forgot about Nancy Drew and Little House! Fail, fail, fail!

And thanks for the shout out!

D.B. Smyth said...

I love Nancy Drew! Woot!

Thanks for the blog links as well. I'm always on the prowl for more awesome. :)

Happy Friday!

I loved Little House on the Prairie

Christina Rodriguez said...

I love that you posted the vintage covers for those books, too. My sister had the same version of Little House on the Prairie, which we both loved, and The Babysitter's Club.

Rebecca B said...

Ditto for all these books! Nancy Drew FTW!

Jaime Morrow said...

Wow, we had a lot of the same reading tastes :) I can't believe I forgot about Nancy Drew! I recently bought a whole bunch of them, so I'm not sure how I forgot. Great list!

Thanks for taking part in the blogfest!

"Are you my mother," is one of my favorites. But man, it must have really hurt falling out of that tree the first time.

@Christina- I love the vintage cover too. I have that one but I also have the one with the yellow around it and I have a Guthrie cover from when we did the musical. Sadly the Guthrie cover doesn't have the Garth Williams illustrations so I don't love it as much.

How could I leave off Nancy Drew- she inspired my book for goodness sake!

I LOVED those books.

Alison Miller said...

I can't believe I forgot Grover. *hides head in shame*
I feel like I need to redo my blog for today.

Great choices! Happy Friday!

We read "Are You My Mother?" to my oldest kids when they were little--it was a favorite of theirs. And I really thought they would get into Nancy Drew (they are girls and they read--right?), but no. Oh well.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Two of those blogs are new to me! Thanks for participating in the blogfest.

Lydia Kang said...

Little House on the Prairie is probably one of my all time favorite books!

Nicki Elson said...

Haha - Monster at the End of this Book and Nancy Drew wold be on my list too! I think Little House on the Prairie too...but mostly I liked the TV show. I had the hugest crush on Michael Landon as Pa.

Julie said...

Oh, I totally loved these books, especially #1! Great idea, this brought back fun memories. :)

I totally missed this blogfest but it's fun to read the entries and find more new blogs to follow. :)

Sarah said...

Thanks so much for the link!

I was an enormous babysitters club fan. I even tried to start my own baby-sitting club, but none of my classmates were up for it. :(

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds like some great picks will check them out and Pat and the cat always like Dr. Suess picks too!

Ciara said...

I'm over from Lydia's blog and tried to follow but the ad keeps getting in the way of me hitting the follow button. I will try back another time. It is nice to meet you.
