What a fabulous idea! My daughter already loves the books and can't wait to share them with some of her friends!!! Maybe even our Mother-Daughter bookclub?????

Just Mom

I just discovered yoru blog very recently and am an old Betsy-Tscy fan - I can't wait to try to convert somebody and have a few possibilties in mind!

Carolina Gal's Literary Cafe

I already know a perfect fit for the book. What a great idea.


My sister and I love all the "Betsy" books and send each other notes with photocopied Vera Neville illustrations on them. . . (We are 18 and 21 yrs old ;)
Combined we will have at least 2 converts! Very lovely idea.


I'm from Puerto Rico and I have to confess I didn't know about these books (yes I know; pleas forgive me) But your ever growing enthusiasm has finale makes me wonder…So I'm waiting for the new edition to come to the bookstore. It’s kind of exciting ….


Okay, Okay...a series of books you are so die-hard about must be wonderful! I haven't read any in the series yet. Are they widely available?


Mary-Frances Main

I'm happy to be the first to offer to be converted - I have never read the series, but since reading your posts was thinking about going to the library to get started! Then, maybe I can convert folks on the next go around?


Thanks for this lovely opportunity. It will be a pleasure to learn about this series and be converted.

Darby Lohrding

Melissa Wiley

I'm in, and I know just the person!

Claire Mysko

I'm in and ready to talk up one of my favorite series!


I have the PERFECT little girl in mind for the Betsy books! What a fun idea!


I'm in and I know just who to give it to!

Chari Bryan

I was "converted" this summer and have been reading all things Maud Hart Lovelace! I have been trying to convert people all summer. :) My daughters think I am nuts! :)

This sounds like great fun!!


Hope you got my post through whatever channel I could make it through.
We are interested in helping spread the word

Leslie Hofbauer

Bring it on! We have not read all of them here since they have been unobtainable but we are very excited for the opportunity. With six girls in the house, there is lots of room for love of Betsy! We know just the person to introduce these fantastic books to!


Yes I calmed down and got in thanks.....

Re: BetsyTacy excitement
"Thanks Kay for getting in touch with me here, and I'm sorry you weren't able to post on the blog. I love Melissa's Bonny Glen. Please send me your address, and your email address and we'll add you to the convert database!"


As a recent convert myself (thanks to Melissa), I so want in on this. I know just the person I want to convert.

Jenn Anderson

OOO sign me up!!!I have already converted a few but there are so many more to convert!!!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
