Hello, fellow Betsy-Tacy friends!!
I'm so pleased to have found this community. I've loved the Betsy-Tacy series longer than any other book (yes, Harry Potter included). Betsy spoke to me, and I found a very good friend in her. I live in Minnesota, (and have lived here all my life), I fully expected high school to be like Deep Valley High, and I took Betsy and the Great World with me on my own study abroad experience in London.
I'm also posting to note the new publishing of the last six books (the high school years, "Great World" and "Betsy's Wedding"). They are beautiful editions that make my original copies look a little worse for wear. Well, to be fair, I guess they are.
This community doesn't seem very active, which is a shame.
So question for you: when/how did you get into the series?
My maternal grandmother gave me "Downtown" when I was about 9, and I recieved them at various birthdays and Christmases thereafter, until I had them all. (Except for Carney's House Party, which I cannot find (cheaply) anywhere!).
