Nancy Drew Reading Challenge

December 8, 2011 Whitney Reading Challenge 5 Comments

I am setting myself a personal challenge to read all 56 original Nancy Drew Mysteries.  I remember when I read my first Nancy Drew, around the age of 10.  We were on vacation and I had run out of things to read.  My mom took me to a local book store and convinced to me read The Secret of the Old Clock, the first Nancy Drew Mystery, it was raining cats and dogs that day and finished it before bedtime.  For whatever reason that was the only yellow hardcover I read growing up but instead read the Nancy Drew Files which were published in the 90s.  I would like to change this error and read all 56 original Nancy Drew yellow hardcovers.

  1. EEEP~!!! How exciting~!! I love Nancy Drew, I started reading her around the age of 10 as well, I never actually read a Nancy Drew File book, but I also haven't read all 59 Nancy Drew Books even though I collect them. I have quite a few. I'm gonna think about doing this.
