  1. I figured I’d post this comment on your most recent posting, even though it doesn’t relate to your music countdown…

    I’m a student at the Columbia Journalism School and am working on a story about women in their 20s and 30s who still hold a torch for the Baby-sitters Club books. The story is for the Columbia News Service, which is part of The New York Times’ syndicate newswire. Stories for the wire go out to about 400 newspaper editors around the country.

    I came across some of your older postings online (October, and then back in May), which made reference to the books. You even joked about castings for a reunion movie, which I’d like to hear more about. What is it about these particular books that have such a lasting impact on readers?

    I’d love to chat on the phone to get your thoughts on what response you get from people when you bring up the BSC books, what memories you have, your favorite characters, etc. Please contact me via e-mail at msk2135@columbia.edu

    Thanks,
    Melissa

    Thanks!
