      Oh, man I loved the Nancy Drew books as a child. I'm already in 20 challenges for 2010, so I can't do another, but I'd love to get around to reading at least one of the Nancy books this year :)

    3. This is a great idea for a challenge, if you did not have to read all of them. I think I'd be Nancy Drew'd out...LOL

    6. I'll mix them in with other reads and it will be ok. I'll probably read them fairly quickly. Most I will get from the library (which I rarely visit these days). I need to visit there more often to save money for new releases that I am really wanting! :)

      I loved these books! I am bummed I got rid of them and have been tempted to try and recollect them. I read all of them and thought they were great. I did not enjoy the non-yellow spined/newer Nancy Drew books as much which is too bad. I hope you have fun during this challenge.
