I used to devour Encyclopedia Brown, the Three Investigators, and the Willard Price books, but for some reason when a friend gave me a Nancy Drew I was mildly offended that she thought I 'd enjoy such a silly girly series. It's possible that by that time I'd outgrown the others too, but I feel like I'd have felt more nostalgic than annoyed if given one of them. Yet really they're all the same kind of book, and as an adult now, though I find the plot a bit too linear and the characters a little thinly sketched, I do appreciate the many and varied female relationships. A nice quick read.… (more)

I absolutely loved Nancy Drew growing up. This was a series I latched on to for dear life and never let go. Anytime my mom and I would go to antique stores, we'd peruse the Nancy Drews and add them to the collection (oftentimes my mom had to make deals with me on how many I could buy). So, while I don't remember the exact details of each and every one, the entire series was amazing and really fed my love for reading (especially novels full of suspense and mystery). Thank you, Carolyn Keene, for giving us an intelligent female character to fall in love with in Nancy Drew!… (more)
