It's funny seeing the picture of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I remember how my sister (a few years younger) so loved those books. I'll have to ask her if she still has any of them. Talk about bringing up some childhood memories. I hadn't thought about that in YEARS.

I have a few Nancy Drew books from childhood on the top of my bookshelf! In addition to the melodramatic stories, I have always loved the packaging of that series! Sounds ridiculously nostalgic I know, BUT I think that kids of the 1970s had experiences that cannot be
over-rated!!!

Interesting story of the life and work of Carolyn Keene, ND creator:

Oh and as for our 1970s experiences, well we didn't have on-demand video, VHS/DVD and most importantly the home computer. We were definitely an "unplugged" generation.

That's cool you still have a few of your ND books too. I still have a bunch of my old Star Wars toys haha! Ah, a long time ago...
