Nancy Drew Book Club


For those of you who don't know, I LOVE to read. I've read so many series and all of the books I already own, so I started looking for Nancy Drew books at the library. I like the early versions - I thought I knew how to pick those by looking for the ones by Carolyn Keene. Mom started thinking that Carolyn Keene must have been the most prolific writer EVER, so she googled 'her' and found out that she doesn't exist. That name is just a pseudonym for the many writers of the syndicate that wrote Nancy Drew and other series.
One Wednesday after bowling, my friend Sarah mentioned how much she liked Nancy Drew. When I told her I was also reading my way through them, she suggested that we form a club. Sarah, her cousin, and I are the only members right now. We "meet" (through e-mail) once a month. (The other girls just aren't as fast as me.....I can read a Nancy Drew book in a day..... that is something I have in common with Mom and Jessica. Mom says we 'devour' books). We take turns deciding on what book we will read, the n whoever picked the book sends out questions. So far we have read: The Hidden Staircase, The Mystery at Lilac Inn, and The Whispering Statue. It is a really great way to read the books because then you can discuss it with someone.

Let's clarify that this is Jessica the sister, not the sewing class buddy.

I read the last Harry Potter book in 4 hours. This might go down as my greatest accomplishment so let's not forget to mention it whenever possible.
