“The Baby-Sitters Club,” one of the most popular book series for tweens in the ‘80 and ‘90s is making a comeback. A prequel to the original series is in the works, and several of the original books will be reissued. The books chronicled the lives of four young girls - Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia & Stacey – as they overcome everyday situations, from getting along with friends to fashion & hairstyles. Sound slightly sappy? That’s exactly the need the publisher is hoping to fill. According to the author, moms and daughters alike are yearning for a simpler storyline than the passion-filled vampire sagas that have taken over pop culture.
According to the Wall Street Journal, since the emergence of e-books, erotic novels have rocketed up to the top of best-seller lists. In the Unites States, 40% of books considered risqué were released in digital format only.
