N - Nancy Drew

The Secret of the Old Clock (Nancy Drew, #1) N is for Nancy Drew. Nancy is the daughter of a lawyer who ends up solving a lot cases on her own or with the help of her friends Bess, George and Ned Nickerson.  She's smart and perceptive. I still love these books and sometimes summon my inner Nancy Drew when I have to solve The Mystery of the Missing (insert costume piece here). These books can also teach a lot about suspense as Nancy is always caught in a suspenseful situation.

Did you read Nancy Drew books when you were growing up? Do you like mystery novels?

I read the Hardy Boys, but my girls love Nancy. There's a whole series of modern Nancy stories, even a comic version. The girls also enjoyed the recent Nancy Drew movie.

I love Nancy Drew! I think that my little girl is getting old enough to start on the Nancy Drew series--hm, must get her the books ASAP! :)

I did read them! And then my daughter zipped through most of them a few years ago. Also, I recently read GLORY BE by Augusta Scattergood, and the MC, Glory, loves Nancy Drew books.

Did I read Nancy Drew growing up? Yes. Do I STILL read Nancy Drew? Yes. Do I play the computer game? Yes.

LOVE the girl detective!

I totally wanted to be Nancy Drew when I was a kid. Loved the Nancy Drew books and the Hardy Boys.

I was a big fan of mysteries as a kid. The Three Investigators was my series. My wife likes mysteries a lot. She's been reading the Aurelio Zen novels recently. We enjoyed the TV series, too.

Found you on A-Z. Good luck with the rest of the alphabet.

I was wondering when I would see a Nancy Drew post. I was a Hardy Boys reader back in junior high.
