There is definitely no contest here. The book I'm most thankful for is whichever Nancy Drew book I read 1st. It was awhile ago, I wish I could remember which one it was! I've always been a reader but the 1st books I was ever obsessed with were Nancy Drew books when I was about 9. My bookshelf was full of that yellow-spined goodness and I pretty much still want to be Nancy Drew.
I love mysteries and 9-year-old me who wanted to do my author biography on Carolyn Keene could not process what a pseudonym or ghost writing was. I was just disappointed that I couldn't write about my favorite author, who was apparently many different people. But not in a crazy way.
Don't even get me started on the movie they made a few years ago...Nancy Drew is not a socially awkward girl who dresses like she's from the 60s. Nancy Drew wins at life. She has a college boyfriend, a convertible, and some serious sleuthing skills. She just needs to learn how to avoid chloroform rags.
The correct answer would be RUN NANCY RUN!
If you've never read a Nancy Drew book, GO DO IT! The original 56 with the yellow spines as shown at the top of the post. I'm not a fan of this spinoff stuff.
Want a nifty list of those 56 books? Of course you do. You should click here.
