I started collecting these as well as my BSC books in the last three years, but I had never really been into LS as a kid, and only ever read a handful. Now I am reading them in order, and find myself enjoying them way more than I should, even, if possible, wanting to read them over BSC books. How do you guys feel about LS as opposed to when you were a kid?
I started off reading LS before I even started reading the normal BSC books. I always loved them I think simply because I enjoyed all the stories Karen went through, whether it was with her family or her friends. I especially loved the holiday LS books. To this day I still love LS a lot, I think becacuse I can read them and feel a little bit of kid in me again.

I started reading BSC almost as soon as I started LS. I got the first LS as a gift when the series first started, 1988 or whenever. I liked it and didn't like waiting a month for a new book, so since there were already a bunch of BSC books out I started reading them. Originally I probably only read the first 20 LS books, but as an adult I've read all but one. (Where are you hiding, Karen's Runaway Turkey? I need to read you.) I like them because they bring back memories of being a second grader and they are (often unintentionally) funny.

I've always liked them. I don't know if I like them more so than when I was a kid, but I certainly find them hilarious. I started reading LS before BSC anyway (I wish I could remember the first one I ever read!)

I feel the same way at times Kylie; mostly because I read LS before I even knew that the BSC even existed (I got into LS in the spring of 98' and got into BSC that summer). I enjoyed reading about Karen's adventures and fun times with her family and friends and reading them now as an adult, I love them just as much as I did then for the same reasons. They take me back to my childhood and memories of being a kid . Plus they're really funny ;D.

I started reading the LS books first. Karen's Ducklings was the first BSC book of any sort that I ever read, and the LS still holds a place in my heart... and I definitely find myself wanting to read the LS books mroe often than the regular ones .
