The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew mystery series

November 03, 2010 by sdc

During the Nov/Dec 2010 hiatus between meetings of the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group, we encourage regular attendees to participate as a group in a virtual way. While we may not have an actual meeting scheduled during these two months, we want to use this blog to keep everyone active with their mystery reading and discussions.

We encourage Just Desserts participants to read any book, from any of the many generations of titles in the Hardy Boys (by Franklin Dixon) or Nancy Drew (by Carolyn Keene) mystery series for teens and youth, at some point in November or December 2010, then come back here and leave a comment about whichever Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew book they read, as a comment posted in response to this discussion topic.

As a bit of background, here are some links to The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew information:

There have also been a number of books published in the past 20 years talking about the origins of the Stratemeyer syndicate, which published both of these series, and the men and women responsible for the creation of these iconic characters.

We look forward to seeing your comments here over the course of the next two months!

I purchased Hardy Boys: The Short-Wave Mystery at the recent library book sale, since amateur (ham) radio is one of my hobby interests. I sometimes wish short-wave communications could always be as easy as for the Hardy boys, but it was nevertheless an engaging and fun read. It was a nostalgic trip back to my youth. I was also an enthusiastic reader of Tom Swift Jr. adventures back then! Hope you all have wonderful holidays!
