Nancy Drew

When I was in Jr. High School my friend Susan and I read lots and lots of Nancy Drew books. We loved them and traded them back and forth. I loved mystery stories and still do. I loved trying to figure out "who done it" and how the story would end. I enjoyed reading about the small town that Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, lived in. I could be sure that nothing TOO drastic or gory or scary would happen. And everyone always lived "happily ever after". I still have a few of my old books, but wish I had saved them all. Every once in a while I look in thrift stores to see if I can find any more old ones, but they are hard to find.

My two daughters love Nancy Drew, too. But they like to play the computer games, which are pretty amazing. You can travel from room to room and building to building, clicking on things to open to try to find all the clues to the newest mystery. They are both very hooked on the games and are always excited when a new one comes out. They trade them back and forth, too!

Nancy Drew has been around for a very long time and she never even ages! She always gets updated to the present and still always solves the mysteries!

I never read Nancy Drew books because I was afraid they'd scare me. But at this point in my live, I love mysteries as long as they are not too gory. There are several series mysteries that I read. It's fun to just get lost in trying to figure it out.

Did you watch the Nancy Drew movie? It was on cable a couple of months ago, and I really enjoyed it.

I had only a couple of Nancy Drew books growing up. But I think I read all the Trixie Belden, which were the same kind of books, I think.

I heard this on the news last night and thought of you (because you had asked me way back in December!), the new Dan Brown book is being released September 15th! Yeah!

I read them ALL! I loved the thought of amart, capable girls being able to solve mysteries and get out of all kinds of trouble. I haven't played the games yet, maybe I will have to check them out.
