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.

Oh man you took it back to Encyclopedia Brown. I read every book in that series, even the cookbook. I was ready to start my own detective agency and charge 25 cents to solve mysteries. Those books, in combination with shows like the Magic Schoolbus, Reading Rainbow, Wishbone, and Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego, were responsible for like 30% of my education as a child.

tell me why i have an encylopedia brown video tape...and i STILL watch it (occasionally ;))...oh and I wanted to start my own baby sitter's club and be the president liek Kristy.

lol. same here. I knew black folk were supposed to like Jessie, but Kristy was always my favorite. I liked her powerful biatchy self :D

Kristy always annoyed the ish out of me . . . don't hold it against me though, MCB, when you're making copies of that tape :D.

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)

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! ;)
