“I’ll do everything I can,” Nancy promised. (pg. 51)

One of the benefits of having impatient friends is that you get your Christmas presents early.

This weekend, I became the proud owner of The Best of Nancy Drew: The Hidden Staircase, The Ghost of Blackwood Hall, and the Thirteenth Pearl.

Now, my reading list for winter break looks like this.

Nancy Drew was one of my childhood heroes. I had probably read every single Nancy Drew book at our local library by the time I was in the fourth grade. And who wouldn’t love a young, intelligent, adventurous heroine? I mean, I want to go around saving people’s lives in an adorable high waist-ed pencil skirt.

However, it looks like (for tonight, at least) doing laundry in pajama pants is going to have to come close enough.
