Littens are the best! @BethM & I exchanged emails about 18 months ago about the Trixie Belden books I was missing from my collection & a couple of weeks ago she sent me an email saying she found a copy of #36 and asking if I would I like it. It was such a treat to come home tonight & find it in my mailbox! Thank you so much Beth! 🤗😘I‘ll have fun revisiting my childhood favorite detective this weekend.

margreads Loved this whole series. Jim was my first book boyfriend 4w
Literary_Siren I haven‘t read any of them but I have my grandmas copies. It‘s not a whole set just a couple of books. 4w
BethM Yay! I‘m glad it got there! @margreads Jim was one of my early book bfs too! 3w
DebinHawaii @margreads @BethM Me too! Although I liked Brian as well! 😉 3w
DebinHawaii @Literary_Siren They are fun. Definitely very dated now but still fun to visit/revisit. 🤗 3w

Hi Littens! Does anyone else collect Trixie Belden books? I have these duplicates in my collection. Lmk if they‘d help your collection!

Pogue Those are such good books and so hard to find. 2mo
BethM @Pogue do you need any? 2mo

I had to decompress from "the first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club" with the rosy-cheeked, bright-eyed, shiny-haired Bob-Whites, amateur sleuths whose first rule is to be as nosy af. Trixie helps to clean out an attic, finds a mysterious letter, goes on the trail of mysterious emeralds, & almost passes out in a mysterious stairwell! The mystery is solved & they celebrate with cheeseburgers & chocolate malts. Good times ?

BookishMarginalia I loved these as a kid! 10mo

Cathythoughts Good times indeed 💕💕👏🏻 10mo
batsy @TrishB 😁 10mo
batsy @mabell @Tanisha_A Thank you ❤️ 10mo
batsy @mabell I understand being nervous that it won't live up to nostalgia. They're pretty predictable & formulaic, so it helps to read them when in the right mood 😂 10mo
batsy @Cathythoughts 😁👍🏽 10mo
daniwithtea I love Trixie Belden! I picked up a couple from the library last year, and they really are a great light read, even all these years later. 10mo
mabell @batsy When the mood strikes, I‘ll have to just dive in! 10mo
batsy @daniwithtea Yes! ❤️ 10mo
LeahBergen My kind of celebration. 😆 10mo
batsy @LeahBergen Mine too 😂 10mo
readinginthedark Definitely an opposite read! 😆 10mo
Suet624 The need to relax the brain is 👍 10mo
batsy @Suet624 So essential! I see my comfort reads piling up this year if it continues this way 😬 10mo
Suet624 I know. It‘s been a challenging reading year for me. Tough reads that have made me question whether good/love can win. 😞 I swing between depression and outrage. ☺️😘 10mo
batsy @Suet624 So much same ❤️❤️ 10mo
Suet624 I just finished a delightful book that I‘ll post about shortly. Of course Vermont and the specific area I live in is a major character in the story. It was a breath of fresh air. I can send it along if you want to give me your address. suet624 at gmail. 10mo
batsy @Suet624 You're so sweet to offer Sue but please don't worry about it! International postage is nuts and perhaps it's a book you might want to revisit? ❤️ 10mo
Suet624 Okey-doke. 10mo
batsy @Suet624 Thanks for the offer 😘 10mo
Tamra 😵 Takes me way back! I graduated from the Little House series to Trixie Beldon series thanks to my grandmother for both. They were such fun, I recall being completely absorbed. I‘m afraid what I‘d think if I read them now - don‘t want to ruin the memories. 😆 10mo
batsy @Tamra I know what you mean, it can be hit or miss with childhood faves! I tried to reread the Nancy Drew books sometime back and got annoyed; I tried again recently and the formulaic silliness was just what I needed 😁 10mo
