Mallory Sighting

I’ve been meaning to point this out for quite some time, actually, but I was reminded by a recent post on stoneybrookite. One of my favorite things to do in fandom is point out people on tv that look like how I picture the characters. During a recent Degrassi Junior High spree, I noticed that this particular character bore an uncanny resemblance to our favorite red-head. (Even though I think Mal has darker hair with a red tint, as per Hello, Mallory but we’ll get to that later).

Now, tell me? Does that not look like the perfect Mallory? She’s even rocking the awesome, oh so popular in the late 80s early 90s in cold climates, turtleneck with a shirt over it combo. If you have never seen an episode of Degrassi Junior High, you are totally missing out.

Episode 1: Kristy’s Great Idea

I was thinking that starting at the very beginning would be a very good place to start. When you sing,you begin with sorry, someone was watching the Sound of Music last week and that song has been in my head ever since. I was going to start off discussing the Graphic Novel, but that will have to wait. My 12 year old cat decided that Kristy’s Great Idea is a pillow.

The Stoneybrook Public Library

This is going to be the home of The Stoneybrook Public Library blog. Stoneybrook is obviously fictional, so if you are looking for the public library of Stoney Creek, you should probably look elsewhere.

What is this blog intended for?
I plan on using this blog to discuss, at length, the Baby-Sitters Club books.

How is that different from the other BSC related blogs?
I intend to discuss the books, their pop culture references, and their place in my heart. One by one. I do not intend to make this a purely “snark” orientated blog, nor do I plan on not pointing out the unintentionally hilarious moments in Stoneybrook.

I really did and still do love these books, despite their “lack of serious literary merit”, and the characters were probably my best friends at some point in my life (4th grade was pretty rough on me), so I don’t plan on calling any of them names.

Also, everyone reads every book differently.

Who are you?
I
am just a normal 20 something with too much time on her hands and a lifelong love of reading.
