Super sleuth is hitting theaters

Nancy Drew, everyone's favorite teenage girl detective, is starring in a new movie. That is, Emma Roberts is starring as Nancy Drew in a new movie. If you can't make it to the theater Friday, June 15 for opening night we have a few titles to help you get your mystery fix.

Did you know we have different Nancy Drew series? A few of them are:
The Nancy Drew Notebooks
The Nancy Drew Mystery Stories (this includes the original 56 titles as well as some newer ones)
Nancy Drew, Girl Detective series
And one of my personal favorites, the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mysteries (I just love it when characters from different books "meet.")

Nancy Drew has been around since 1930 and has undergone many different makeovers since then. One site by a Nancy Drew fan (no, not me) that's busy but fun to peruse is The Nancy Drew Sleuth Unofficial Website. There's pictures, history, info about the other movies, collectibles, and more. Warning: there's a lot of pictures and information so it might take time to load.

So what's your favorite Nancy Drew book? Mine is still The Secret in the Old Attic. Those troublesome black widow spiders and a skeleton in the closet, stolen musical manuscripts and silk chemical formulas, an orphaned child, a ditzy maid, and a villain named Bushy... classic Nancy Drew!
