Reading Challenge: Nancy Drew Mystery Stories

Nancy Drew books

I loved Nancy Drew books when I was a kid. Now I’m rereading the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories books. This is the original series that gave Nancy Drew her start. These books started getting published in the 1930s, and continued into the early 1980s. The first book, The Secret of the Old Clock, was published in 1930 and the last book, Captive Witness, was published in 1981. The books had various authors, and starting in 1959, the earlier books were revised to portray a more up-to-date story. All 64 books were published under the pen name Carolyn Keene.

Reading these Nancy Drew books is part of my 2017 reading goals. For a peek at what I’ve read and what I’m currently reading, click over to Goodreads.
