Throwback Thursday 5.3.12

Throwback Thursday is a weekly feature here on Never Too Fond of Books. Each week I’ll highlight a book I remember fondly from my childhood- sometimes with a mini review!

Feel free to participate and post a link to your Throwback Thursday post in the comments!

Original Release Date: 1986
Title: Kristy’s Great Idea (BSC #1)
Author: Ann M. Martin

Summary: Kristy thinks the Baby-sitters Club is a great idea. She and her friends Claudia, Stacey and Mary Anne all love taking care of kids. A club will give them the chance to have lots of fun-and make tons of money.

But nobody counted on crank calls, uncontrollable two-year-olds, wild pets, and parents who don’t always tell the truth. And then there’s Stacey, who’s acting more and more mysterious. Having a baby-sitters club isn’t easy, but Kristy and her friends aren’t giving up until they get it right!

I adored these books as a kid! I’m pretty sure I never read all of them (there are over 100!), but I sure made a dent in the pile. I reread the first 3 of the series this past December – talk about a blast from the past.

Scholastic started re-releasing the series in 2010, so I hope a new generation can fall in love with these like I did!

Aw yeah, a perennial favorite… I borrowed mine from an older girl down the street

I can’t remember where I got my copies. I’m guessing the local library. I don’t remember actually owning them- I just remember reading them A LOT.

I loved the BSC! In fact, I was in some kind of club thing where I was sent all the new BSC books. I have no idea where they all went, though.

The majority of the books I review are obtained as advanced copies via Net Galley or Edelweiss, through ARC tours, or they are finished books I have purchased myself.

If you are an author or publisher and would like me to review your book, please read my review policy and contact me.

Each review will contain affiliate links to various booksellers for that book. If you choose to purchase the book through those link, I will be compensated.
