My childhood role model 😊
My childhood role model 😊
For years, I‘ve told myself I would read all 56 Nancy Drew mysteries... there are a few I‘ve never read. The simple sentences really make me want to laugh. But, I read about a third of the book in no time at all and quite enjoyed myself.
Just finished rereading my first Nancy Drew book! A fun quick read, but I couldn‘t help but think how crazy this girl was! Sneaking into a barn with a bunch of ruffians just nearby?! No way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️
I was feeling a little nostalgic, so I stopped by the library and picked up a few copies of Nancy Drew. I read book one yesterday. On the menu today - Book two, The Hidden Staircase.
This is my first Nancy Drew book ever!! And I have to say that 13 year old me, would have relished the maturity and action of this book, 32 year old me finds Nancy Drew‘s freakishly coincidental happenstances a bit suspicious. Lol. It was a cute quick read. I did find myself questioning a lot of things, but I had to remember that this wasn‘t written for me. Having now read one of her books, I can say my childhood was not lacking.
So glad we all made it to the weekend!!

Books from my stacks with clocks in their titles and/or on their covers. I had to include both Time After Time covers--the movie tie-in as the movie is a favorite & the one with a clock on it. A Clockwork Orange is a long ago bail--I just couldn't get into it. Red Clocks is a more recent bail--more bad timing on my part than issues with it. I checked out the library audiobook last month but couldn't focus on it.🕰
One of my favorite photos I‘ve ever taken of my oldest childhood favorite books. The middle one is the oldest one I own (1930‘s) and also an original text. The watches were my grandfather‘s ❤️

❤️I found a Nancy Drew collector's dream in the independent bookseller, Books on Bay.... this is just a small sampling of what I ogled like a fool over. The owner gave me such an education on collecting and showed me a few rarities that she had behind the desk. I completely got to booknerd out this afternoon.
🔎My next Holy Grail is the edition with Ned smoking in an illustration! 🚬

So I was a big fan of Alice détective as a kid and discovered since then that she is actually Nancy drew in disguise! Apparently the translation changes a lot of things... Even names. So I need to read them in English... But right now reading in French because I need a author name in q for #litsyatoz!
