While trying to help a friend out of a difficulty, Nancy has a perilous experience in and around a deserted bungalow, from which only her bravery and quick thinking save her.

Reading these books makes me wish or fantasize that I could be more like Nancy. She’s sweet and personable, making friends almost everywhere she goes and dresses smartly in the latest fashion. Her father Carson Drew is a sharp, handsome lawyer including his daughter in all his legal actions. I also adore the 1930s, that snapshot in time has always appealed to me with its classic movies and music and seems like a simpler time; although, that could be due to Leave It To Beaver reruns. Nancy’s latest mystery, The Bungalow Mystery is a very easy, fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed.

  1. The first thing I noticed was you got the original cover! About 7 of my original Nancy Drew Mysteries survived, none with the cover intact. I so loved reading these as a kid, and fantasized about owning a powder blue roadster with a rumble seat. I actually pulled down The Sign Of The Twisted Candles last month for "comfort reading." I spent many lovely hours in the company of Nancy, George and Bess. And I was totally in love with Carson Drew.

    We are so insync right now, even tho we are a generation apart. I loved Nancy and have all the original yellow hard bound books, several cover designs and some with dust jackets.

    I especially liked the original author, Mildred Wirt Benson, who wrote the first 23 books.

  3. Grad– Isn't Carson Drew just the dreamiest? I am totally crushing. The covers are nice too…

    Felicia– I never read the Hardy Boys growing up. That will be a series I will have to explore.

    Kim– With subjects like Nancy Drew and Frank Sinatra age doesn't always seem to matter. Isn't that what defines a classic?
