For The Love of GOOSEBUMPS
There were two book series I’d dash down the aisles of Waldenbooks for as a young reader: The Baby-Sitters Club and Goosebumps. Like so many young readers, the Goosebumps series appealed to me as someone who loved scary stories, and R.L. Stine was tapping into something that made me crave more. I never quite got into his other horror books as I grew, but I sure did love seeing Goosebumps endure through my time as a children’s librarian decades after my own youth. How fun to share those same books — as well as new additions to the series — with a whole new generation of scare-seekers.
Goosebumps continues to delight and thrill, both with nostalgia and not. Readers are still discovering it anew, and with a live-action adaptation in the works, long-time fans are rediscovering the series and all it brought to their young lives.
