Friday Round-Up - #81

Lisa Karon Richardson's article at Inkwell Inspirations made me nostalgic. She shares the origins of the Nancy Drew series, as well as others. Don't miss this fascinating post.

With the New Year in full swing, it's time to find ways to keep up with blogging responsibilities. Here's a hat tip to Kathryn Lang, who pointed me to this article.

Have a great weekend!

You wouldn't believe all the memories your picture of the Nancy Drew book conjured up in my mind!! That was the very first series of books I began reading when I was old enough to enjoy a good mystery. I still have all of the ones I collected while I was growing up.

Thanks for the article link, too! Have a great weekend!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Maria -

How neat that you still have your books! Hang onto them. They're probably collectibles. :)

Blessings,
Susan
