There was an article in the New York Times about a lady who'd put her copies of Cherry Ames on a shelf and forgot about them, until she had another child (in 1997.) That new reader is now old enough to find these out of print books and ask what they are about. Oh, Glory!!!! These were wonderful stories for those of us glued to the adventures so many years ago. These same books would probably be considered outdated for most publishers but, to this mom's new reader, they were as riveting as they were to the fans of last century. This mom was scouring used book sites to find copies that match her own books so she can "fill in the blanks" for her daughter who wants to know "the rest of the story."
Golly, this brings back a lot of good memories for me.
These were good days for me.
