While compiling the “Best of September” post this month, I happened across this, on Tumblr :
Seasonal Babysitters Club covers are the best way to celebrate any holiday or change of season. Print this out on a sweatshirt and wear it while sipping your pumpkin-flavored whatever.
Wow, I wish I had known about this before! Please tell me I’m not the only person in the search marketing industry who read every Babysitters Club book. (Then sold the whole collection at a garage sale for less than $20, sob.)
