I too love to find my friends and soul mates in books.
My books and our trees are my friends. Both are comforting and always there.
Love the Nancy Drew books you have there! We had an extensive collection handed down from family members. I remember spending my summer when I was 10 year old pouring over all of them. Then it was fun to watch my oldest son do the same with the Hardy Boys series. Good times!
Why am I not surprised that you enjoyed Nancy Drew in your girlhood....Your inquisitive mind tipped me off....I too enjoyed these books, just seeing the spines of them brings back many happy memories....I read so many, not sure if I read all of them...I devoured the Hardy Boy books too....Nancy was such an ideal girl...I longed to be that titian-haired girl who stumbled onto one mystery after another...No wonder you dont' want to part with the books...I wish I had kept all my copies too!
Oh, I read all those same Nancy Drew books that Betsy did, only about five years earlier! They had belonged to our aunt and uncles who had collected nearly all of them. They were so mysterious and scary. ;)
I read the Hardy Boys, the Bobbsey Twins, Trixie Belden, The Dana Sister, Cherry Ames, Donna Parker.....My library was too snobby to have any of those books because they weren't "Literature." I found some of my books at the Goodwill, received them for Christmas and birthdays, asked older people if they had any I could read. I looked for them everywhere.
Where are you? I want a new post!
I loved Nancy Drew and Cherry Ames too! I think Cherry Ames convinced me to become a registered nurse! My daughter enjoyed "the Babysitter Club" books when she was young.Now children love Harry Potter.I guess each generation has their favorites.
Pat, my daughter read The Babysitter Club too. I love Harry Potter myself. I guess I am reverting back to childhood already.
I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
