One of the most fun parts of being a librarian is choosing which books to order. Ordering was especially fun today, because I ordered the re-issues of Kristy's Great Idea, Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, and The Truth About Stacey, the first three books in the Baby-Sitters Club series by Ann M. Martin. Apparently, the books have been "updated," so the girls don't have cassette players or perms; they have headphones and expensive hairstyles. Nothing like stripping a book of all its vintage glory. Hopefully the publisher didn't change any of the outfits! Those are the best part.
But that's not all! I also ordered the brand new prequel to the series, The Summer Before. I can't wait to read it. The cover is a teensy bit lame, but we all know you can't judge a book by its cover. I'm sure the book itself totally rules.
