  2. Love that Nancy Drew! Beautiful illustrations. What memories this brings back. Oh many times I got in trouble for having a flashlight under the covers to read a Nancy Drew Mystery!

  3. I love old Nancy Drew books, they are wonderful. But I have to say my fave is her as a redhead. I am biased towards them I guess.

  8. Love this post...remembering reading Nancy Drew as a girl. I actually have all the books I read back then. Some are the blue books with the paper book jackets.

  9. Books are some of my favorite things! And the older, the better, too. :) I read Nancy Drew mysteries and even watched the TV series with Pamela Sue Martin in the 70s. Both of my daughters have read many of the books, too. We still have several of them! :)

  15. I was always given Nancy Drew books for my birthdays during the early 1960's. I read them over and over again. My daughter has them now, I hope that she has kept them in good condition for her lil' Emmy, who at nearly three adores books,just as much as her Mama and Grammy do!

  16. Hi Coralie!
    Your Nancy Drew books are a real find, the covers are so pretty and they look to be in perfect condition.
    I still love it when the Hallmark Chanel runs the Nancy Drew mysteries. Also, the Hardy Boys is another favorite.
    I love mysteries and I'm particular fond of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Poirot, the Belgium Detective.

  17. I grew up reading Nancy Drew. I wanted to solve mysteries just like her, but there weren't any. I'm still getting around to finishing the series. Rosie

  19. Oh my youngest would be so jealous! she is 14 and has been collecting Nancy Drew books for years (shes my thrifting buddy...at least i got one out of three). Her goal is to own a set of each of the sets...the '30s-50s, the 60s-80s and the 90s-present. i think she inherited my collecting gene!

  22. I adore Nancy Drew! The vintage editions are so much better than the 60s revisions. SO much richer and non-pc. Thanks for the fabulous covers

  23. Oh man, Coralie, them is purdy! Brilliant colors. I remember reading (devouring) Nancy Drews when I was in jr. high school. My sister did, too. Our school had the ooooold brown-covered editions. But, I loved the old 30's fashions they'd show on the opening pages. You really got a great deal!

  24. My sister had all the Nancy Drew books, hers were the yellow covered editions (probably from the 70's). I remember loving the Bobbsey twins!

    Thanks for a stroll down memory lane!
