Kimmy Schmidt lives and breathes The Baby-Sitter’s Club Mystery #12: Dawn and the Surfer Ghost. At least she did when she was living in the bunker. Now that she’s out and living in New York, Kimmy’s reading list has expanded to include the entire Ann M. Martin backlist. To celebrate the second season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, here are five Baby-Sitter’s Club books Kimmy would love.

Here are ten quintessential rules for running for election, as told (well, more shown than told, but I’m sure he would’ve told you anyway if he wasn’t dead) by the great Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of American Independence of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom.
Our Founding Father was many things—a bibliophile, a scholar, a lover of food, a violinist, a slave holder, and a two-time presidency-winning loquacious son of a gun.
So how did this prominently-born well-dressed son of a Virginian planter, skip the Revolution, knock up a few women, and still go on to win a presidency?
These are Jeff’s Ten Election Commandments.
This year we thought we’d celebrate National Bookmobile Day by placing some fictional characters in charge of some real life libraries on wheels. While Kimmy Schmidt is still one of our favorite imagined librarians, we couldn’t picture her driving a bookmobile through the streets of NY without ending up in an accident. So we left her happily working in the public library as we set out on the road.
We came, we comic-conned, we con-quered! Here are some photos from our whirlwind weekend in Seattled where the books sold like hotcakes and a bevy of characters came to visit us at Booth 215!
Happy 100th birthday, Beverly Cleary! Thank you so much for writing the wonderful books that have defined so many people's childhoods: Henry Huggins, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, and, of course, the Ramona Qimby series. In honor of your special day, we would like to imagine what Ramona Quimby would be like at the age of thirty.
