I would read anything as a child. I used to complain to the local library regularly that their limit of 6 books at a time was too small. Me and my brother used to have to work the system. We would each pick 3 books that we wanted to read and another 3 books that we would both read, so we could have a total of 9 books per week.
I loved the babysitters club too, my aunt lived in boston at the time, and there were several of the series that we couldnt get in Ireland. (Before internet shopping!) so she would send me one once a month with some tootsie rolls. LOVED getting my package!

Jake is only just learning to read now, but he LOVES books. He has advanced from books for his age group like the gruffalo and other short stories, to chapter books. He really enjoys the Horrid Henry series, the Dirty Bertie series and he has some Rold Dahl books that he adores. We are reading "Meet the Weirds" atm, its hilarious!
