Another quick adventure with Nancy. This time she‘s hunting down an impersonator while helping a friend untangle a series of strange events at her new inn. Could these mysteries be related?

Number 7 for #nancydrewchallenge

“Helen looked distressed, and Mrs. Willoughby wrung her hands. “We must report all this to the police immediately. No one at Lilac Inn is #safe.”

As always, a fun read. This is my second time through the series as I read to my daughter. We started when she was 18 months. Now she's 4.5 and LOVES Nancy Drew. One of the best ways to encourage curiosity and attention to detail in a young reader!

ReadZenRites Awww Love Nancy Drew. That looks like the whole set! ✨📚✨ 2y
ravenlee #ReadZenRites it is the whole original series, to #56! 2y

Made progress in my attempt in reading the entire Nancy Drew series…I thought posting one at a time would be tedious, so here are the three I finished 📚

As a kid, we had the whole set of Nancy Drew books from the 40's. I devoured them. I remember this one, because Nancy's friend owned this inn, and had some diamonds stolen. I need to go find a copy and read it again . #LyricalApril #diamonds

KimM I've decided I need to start collecting these old books. ❤ 3y
Suzze @KimM I wish I had kept ours. We gave them to our nieces, who passed them on to someone else. Hope they are still being loved. 3y
Cinfhen I love the cover❤️ 3y

KimM Me too. I wish I still had my Nancy Drews, Bobsey Twins and Trixie Beldens. (edited) 3y
BethM Ladies- I have two Nd books- one is 1&2 together, one is 3&4 together from the 1960s I believe. If anyone wants one or both to restart your collections I'd be happy to send them to you. 3y
BethM @KimM my Trixie collection is my pride and joy :) 3y
Sace 😍😍😍😍😍 I love Nancy Drew so much. I have the full set but the covers are a mixup of different times. My book doesn't have this cover. I wish it did! 3y
KimM Oh wow! Thanks @BethM for the generous offer. I'm not sure what decade I plan to collect as of yet. I've never seen the combined versions. Didn't know they existed or maybe I just don't recall. Lol 3y
BethM @KimM I'll take a pic and tag you :) 3y
mcctrish I loved Nancy Drew! I used to save my allowance and once a month go to Woolco ( Canadian predecessor to Walmart) on $1.44 day to buy a new ND book and fries with gravy at the lunch counter #howoldami 🤣 3y
DeleteAcct I loved these. I have the whole set hoping to one day give to my daughter. I had 3 boys. Lol. Well there's always granddaughters. 😄 3y
Gayan This makes me so nostalgic. I loved reading these when I was a kid. 3y
LeahBergen @mcctrish I think I still have some Woolco stickers on my old Nancy Drews! 😂 3y
minkyb Well done! 3y
Laura317 I still have my Nancy Drew books. I wish I still had my Tricia Beldens. 3y
Laalaleighh As a kid my best friends and a specifically read and reread the ones where Nancy got kidnapped. We thought it was exciting. Looking back it freaks me out. I think we were strange children. 3y
Sarah1960 "The sign of the twisted candle" was one of my favorites. Those books began my love of reading! ?❤️? 3y

Day 11 of #riotgrams. Here are a few of my favorites which now live in my daughter's room. I've loved a mystery and strong female characters since I was a kid! #childrensbooks @Liberty @bookriot

monkeygirlsmama Carolyn Keene was my favorite author when I was a young girl. I still have all my Nancy Drews, but sadly I never managed to get the entire series. Maybe one day I will finish collecting them though. 3y
DebinHawaii I loved all of these too! 📚❤️ 3y
youngreadrshelf @monkeygirlsmama most of mine I borrowed from an older cousin. These were a few of the ones I got as gifts. 3y

So because of my library's faulty notification system, I just returned 8 books I didn't know were overdue until today. Dropped $17.50 on those sons of bitches. Never had an overdue book before and you can bet your ass I'm never having one again. I hope your day has been better than mine. Christ. 😒

Bookgirl I have overdue books all the time. I figure it's still cheaper than buying books! 3y
BookishMarginalia Would it help to think of it as supporting your local library? 3y
BookishFeminist I've always got fines & often consider it my annual "donation." Especially if something has a long holds list & I couldn't finish before the deadline. It totally sucks if the fines are unexpected though. 3y

This came home with me yesterday. It's so gorgeous! It was immediately stolen by my progeny. I'm proud that I instilled such book lust in her. Also, I'm really going to be sad that this book isn't mine. #bookishdilemmas

Mayread Oh this was my first & therefore favorite. I babysat for a couple that had all of the originals in pristine condition. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage No one is quite as shrewd as Nancy! 3y
