the best friends you’ll never have

Question: did the BSC ever celebrate Labor Day?

Ashley asked for a post about Graphic Novels. I think they’re cute, and a fun way to read the earlier books, which honestly I am not a big fan of. So the comics make it more interesting. Raina also does a good job of updating the books just enough–like changing the price when Laine and Stacey go to the movies to reflect inflation. I also appreciated how in The Truth About Stacey, Raina added flashback scenes of events from Stacey’s Portrait. I think there’s only going to be two more (Claudia and Mean Janine and The Ghost at Dawn’s House), but correct me if I’m wrong. I know of people who have bought one copy to keep pristine and one to color in, which I think is fun idea. They’re also great as presents for younger readers, so you can evilly get them addicted to BSC. You enabler, you! Anyway, I probably won’t do a full post on them, but I like them a lot.

I just moved for the third time in as many weeks, and I’m pretty exhausted. But I hope all you Americans had a good holiday!

I don’t think there’s any official word on a fifth one yet, but we can hope!!

And I totally want to colour one in, but I wouldn’t know what to colour it with. I like markers best, but I’d be worrid about it bleeding through the pages.

I think probably colored pencils would work best. or you could photocopy every page individually and color the photocopy in and then it won’t matter. I suppose that is copyright infringement, however.

The pages are pretty heavy though – maybe if you color lightly, with fine point markers? There’s a chance they won’t bleed through. I would use color pencils though.
