    I have grown up with Drew and Hardy Boys, apart from Blyton stories an love everything about em. Nowadays it is rare that you would find a Drew enthusiastic to discuss and share the stories read :)

    I loved Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys! I still have more than 4 dozen of them in my bookshelves. My friends and I used to exchange books from our own collections. I’m glad I have a small circle of friends that I can share and discuss with.

    Oh wow! I miss Nancy Drew! I miss reading books during my childhood years– Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Sweet Valley, Babysitters’ Club, etc. These books remind me of my younger years. It’s such a shame that kids today don’t do much reading anymore.
