    What a great list. Several of the series are familiar but I only read Nancy Drew, the Anne series and the Little House series. You must have been a mystery book fan!

  • Rachel

    What a neat list. I remember I just LOVED the Little House books. I read a few Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden, but they SCARED ME TO DEATH!!:)
    I really really like your new blog style.

  • Tiffany

    I read a few of the Anne of Green Gables, Bobbsey Twins, Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew. I really like the Nancy Drew books! They were probably my favorites out of this list.

    Thanks for the comment about by new blog design. I love it! It just came up today.

    I have been enjoying your site, also.

    You did not have A Wrinkle In Time or The Boxcar Kids….those were some of my favs. I think I read every Boxcar Kid book….wanted to live in a boxcar with a broken teacup.
    What a trip down memory lane. Thanks.
    My list is up for the week.
    Peace, love, and Mama Bear Hugs.

    Ohh, I loved Anne of Green Gables! Never really gotten into AH and the ??? especially after I slept over at a friends (I was about 9) and we listened to a tape about one of their stories and I got really scared… I know, it’s sad… LOL

  • Farrah

    I love to read and feel deprived as a child! LOL! I only read the Anne (can’t forget the “e”) books, some Drew and the first Little House. I’ve heard of some of the others like Hardy Boys.

    Oh my! I LOVED Anne of Green Gables, and my whole family read the Bobbsey Twins, and I absolutely ADORED Little House on the Prairie, and I really enjoy Trixie Belden too!
