Day 8 - Old favorite

I used to love Nancy Drew books. My mom and I would look for them at garage sales and she‘d buy them for me at Sam‘s Club. (pic from Google)

I just finished Sing Unburied Sing and it wrecked my heart. I didn't know books could be so sad and beautiful at the same time. 💔💔💔 I can't read another sad book so soon after this one so I'm diving into something on the lighter side.

Confession: I never read Nancy Drew as a kid. I read a different girl detective series (see comments 👇). Time to see what I missed out on! 🔍

I read this one aloud to the girls, and while the writing is a little clunky in a few spots (lots of repetitive adjectives), they loved the mystery, and I was impressed all over again at Nancy‘s smarts and skills — I mean, she changed a tire, and fixed a boat, and bravely tracked down thieves! All in a lovely summer sweater suit. #howjessreadsin2019

I didn‘t read these as a kid (Bobbsey Twins and Cam Jansen were my speed), but I have really enjoyed reading these to my daughter. I read this on my own - we reread it together a few months ago - as number 2 for #nancydrewchallenge

Does it work as a modern story? Of course not. But it‘s a good intro to mysteries and doesn‘t get into bad language, misbehavior, or sophomoric humor. A plus in my book.

It‘s been years since I last read a Nancy Drew book. I had never read the first book in the series, so I was excited to find a copy on Overdrive. Revolving around the search for a revised will that would benefit a deceased man‘s most destitute relatives, this book‘s mystery was engaging. My only critique would be that Nancy as a character seems much too good to be true. This was the ‘50‘s revised edition, & I‘d love to read the ‘30‘s original.

Revisiting an old favorite is always a good idea. Nine year old me's greatest aspiration was to drive a blue convertible and solve mysteries. I can't say this story held up over the years, but it gave me the nostalgic feels I wanted. Laura Linney does a lovely job with the narration.

My mom sent me my surviving Nancy drew books a couple of years back and I'm so happy to have them. I read them all multiple times. These days I find them unbearable to read but they're still picks due to the happiness they gave me in childhood. I was also a Trixie Belden girl as you can see, but Nancy was my first love. #firstseriesyoueverread #allthebookssept18 @TheReaderBee @Loriimagination

KathyWheeler I haven‘t read Nancy Drew as an adult — mostly because I‘m afraid I‘d find them unbearable and I don‘t want to. 10mo

This is #Day1 - Nancy Drew is what first really sucked me into a story and blew my love of reading into obsession. In summer months, I‘d read them over and over. My mom couldn‘t buy them fast enough to keep up with my need to read them all! Nancy Drew books will always have a special place in my heart. ❤️

Frock. Luncheon. Roadster.
Some of my favorite words from the older 1930s Nancy Drew texts.
Did you know that the texts have been revised? They cut out 5 chapters of the early books sometime in the 70s to save on printing costs.
I enjoyed rereading this story, this time from the 1950s tweed edition - it has the full text and some great illustrations (R) compared to the revised edition (BL).

NANCY DREW IS IN THE HOUSE! Someone in a Facebook group I was in was looking to get rid of their set (~1-55) so I snatched it up. I adore this super sleuth. I also love the video games. Can't wait to add these to my own collection (I have some very old early editions - they talk about "The Great War" ? - and some of the books numbered 100 and up, shout-out to Scholastic Book Order). My husband even said we could get a new bookcase for them! ??

In the latest episode of my podcast (out today!), fellow Brooklyn-based writer Kase Wickman and I dive into the first book in the Nancy Drew series, The Secret of the Old Clock. This was Kase‘s first experience reading Nancy Drew, and her reaction (to some!) might surprise you. Check out the link in my bio or search The SSR Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play to listen!

StephanieSays The Nancy Drew series is so important to me! Definitely going to check out the podcast. Have you ever played any of the Nancy Drew PC games? 12mo
ahoffkosik @StephanieSays i don‘t think so! But that sounds like something that would be up my alley! 12mo
StephanieSays @ahoffkosik just binged every episode of SSR, and it‘s so great! All of your guests are so interesting, and I love the concept of the show. In addition to that, I‘m also from suburban PA and spent every summer at the Jersey Shore and loved Sloppy Firsts in part because of that. 11mo
StephanieSays @ahoffkosik Also, I just moved to NYC, and I‘m curious how you found your book club. I‘ve been trying to find one as a way to read more and make friends in this new city, but I haven‘t had any success finding one with people my age. 11mo
ahoffkosik @StephanieSays sounds like we have so much in common! Thank you for listening to the show. It makes me so happy to hear you‘re loving it and finding it bingeworthy :) and welcome to NYC! We built the book club up from scratch out of a really small group of friends, and over time brought in another person every few months. If you find even one person at work or something you can connect with, i think that‘s a good place to start! 11mo

Congratulations on your 10k! Just looking at Nancy Drew books brings me joy. I remember staying home from school sick (Not very) lying in bed plowing through three of these. Good memories.

1. Always and forever a Nancy Drew girl. Seriously considering a Nancy silhouette tattoo...

2. Born a Crime, Kindred, Little Fires Everywhere (you can't make me choose just one!)

3. Can't think of one. Generally if I truly hate a character, it's because they're written to be hated (ie: Umbridge) and then I love how deliciously awful they are.

4. 50 Shades? I've had many people tell me I "just HAVE" to read them. No interest.

5. @Melissa_J

Mehso-so

The Nancy Drew series was one of the first collections that sparked my hunger and passion for literature. There were a couple of things that slot the series as young adult—even children's—literature. Nancy's particularly loud thoughts perhaps intends for the reader to cheer for her. There were a couple of rookie grammar mistakes here and there, and that super obvious indication of what's to come in the next book made me laugh out loud. 😆

The first book to introduce Nancy Drew.. it was this series that sealed the deal for me and launched me into my life long passion for reading! It‘s still so very near and dear to my heart ♥️ 🤗

It was first published in 1930 and is still a fan favorite of the young and old alike! ♥️🤗

It was okay but I think the later books/mysteries were more exciting and more nicely written than this one. Or maybe I was much younger when I read the other ones thus the other ones appealed to me more.
