I just got my copy of "The Summer Before"! Went to Chapters and found four copies of it and immediately snatch a copy for myself along with the re-prints of "Kristy's Great Idea & "Claudia And The Phantom Phone Calls". ;D

I don't have them all yet, so I've never read them straight through. I'm trying to collect them all and I've got 75% of them (yes I counted, I'm that cool lol), but not in order. I'm anxiously awaiting the day I have them all so I can read them. I will definitely read The Summer Before, before I read KGI. But then I'm planning to read them all in extreme chronological order, including the mysteries, super specials, etc.
I don't have all the books. So, I can't read them in order. I'm re-reading BSC & LS books, whatever mood, I feel like reading. I'm hoping, I can go to the library this year. Rent or see, if they have any BSC books for sale at the book nook.
