anybody remember the Sideways Stories from Wayside School series? And there was this one book about a phantom school bus or something - loved it, can't remember the name if it - Summer of My German Soldier made me cry. There were SOOOO many books. Man, those were the serious days! Kids today come home and mess around on the internet - lots of us came home and straight up read. In hindsight I was nothing but a big geek begging for those books all the time. Time a new BSC book hit the shelf I bought it. I think there was a board game too and I got all of those movies (not the major ones, but the smaller ones that came out before the major one.)

Man did I love those . . . did you have Sideways Math from Wayside School?  I attribute any success I had in Logic Games directly to that book. ;)

I got 10 books a week, every Saturday, and then I'd finish them by Tuesday, and read them all again before the next Saturday rolled around - I once got grounded from reading for three days because I was sneaking and staying up way past my bedtime to read more.  Longest three days of my life, I swear.  And those Scholastic book catalogues at school?  Forget it, I always had this huge stack.  Huge nerd.  Huge. 8)

oh wow Sweet Valley high?   :o Say it ain't so!   :D

edit: come on, you could have at least done babysitter's club  >:(  ;)

Oh, I did Babysitter's Club.  And Saddle Club.  And Encyclopedia Brown.  And Boxcar Kids.  And pretty much anything else I could get my hands on.  I was a bit of a reader.

Hmm.  I did Sidney Milhone mysteries.

No wonder why I'm so screwed up. :-\

Charles deLint for me . . . we're all screwed up. :)

Man, y'all are bringing back major memories! BSC, Ramona, Sweet Valley High, and R.L. Stine books were my late elementary-middle school staples  :) :) :)

Ramona--Yes!!!  Everything else...suspect.

Nu uh, fear street was the ish.  Tons of white people getting killed? That's straight gangsta.  :D :D :D

 :D :D :D :D :D :D

Did anyone read the Berenstein Bears Chapter Books...Yes!. .and yes! Catcher in the Rye..it's been hijacked by every wanna show that i'm cool a-hole so i usually dont bother mentioning it but Holden Caufield changed my life (well that might be a little dramatic) but there are only a handful of books that had a really profound effect on me and that was one...im about to really take it back how about "where the wild things are"

Loved it.  Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?

thats it, your card is gone!   :P  I read the others on your list though.  Encyclopedia was the best.  Did you also do Nancy Drew?  Man this brings back so many memories.

Wait a sec, that was the only one where a black girl was actually a main character!  Stop hatin'!

Yes to Nancy Drew, but not a ton.  I also like to get sort of 80's vintage trashy teen lit like . . . girltalk or Charisma (that was a detective series as well).  Did anyone read the Berenstein Bears Chapter Books . . . Brother and Sister in middle school with boyfriends and girlfriends and what not?

I swear there was worthwhile literature interspersed throughout all of this . . .  ;D

my ghetto pass is about to be ripped burned and spread across the potomac...any body heard of a book called "a seperate peace?" it's one of my favorites

I never had a ghetto pass, but that was one of my favorite books as a tweener.  That, To Kill a Mockingbird, and A Bridge to Terabithia

I loooooved that book, it made me weep openly every time.  I also was really into The Giver and anything buy Paula Danziger.

But my ghetto pass revocation probably came with my obsession with Sweet Valley Twins (and High, and Kids) . . . I think they had, maybe, one black friend?

Anne of the Island was great, as I recall Rilla didn't do it for me though, but I could be thinking of Rainbow Valley . . . guess I'll have to read them all again to make sure! ;)
