Nancy Drew is Coming!

Have you heard the news????  The Nancy Drew Blog Hop is about to start!!!

For those like me that did not know,

Nancy Drew is a fictional character in a juvenile mystery fiction series which first appeared in 1930. Over the decades the character has evolved in response to changes in US culture and tastes. The books were extensively revised, beginning in 1959.  Many scholars agree that in the revision process, the heroine's original character was changed to a less assertive and more feminine character. In the 1980's an older and more professional Nancy emerged in a new series.

Do you know what the first book was that came out?


Nancy Drew is a fictional amateur sleuth. In the original versions of the series she was a 16-year-old high school graduate, and in later versions was rewritten and aged to be an 18-year-old high school graduate and detective. In the series, she lives in the fictional town of River Heights with her father, attorney Carson Drew, and their housekeeper, Hannah Gruen. As a child she lost her mother (at age 10 in the original versions; at age 3 in the later versions); this would reflect in her early independence (running a household since the age of ten with a clear-cut servant, to later, deferring to the servant as a surrogate parent). As a teenager she spends her time solving mysteries, some of which she stumbles upon and some of which begin as cases of her father's. Nancy is often assisted in solving mysteries by her two closest friends, Bess and George, and also occasionally by her boyfriend,  Ned Nickerson, who is a college student at Emerson College.

Well, I must say, unfortunately, I never read a Nancy Drew book.  I was never a reader in school.  In fact, I was one that never read a book in school   (My friend would read them for me)  LOL   So when this hop came up, I just had to join.  But afterward, in all honesty, I had NO idea as to what I was going to do.  That is when I researched Nancy Drew on my lap top.  I surly learned a lot, but still drew blanks as to what I wanted to make.  Then it hit me......oh, I am not saying.  My day to blog will be March 11th.  You will have to wait till then.  Oh, and my one sponsor has a surprise for my giveaway.
