About Blackwood

I started reading the glossy, yellow-spined Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy books in 6th grade. Soon after, I discovered the AppleWood reproductions of the original stories. I then became a fanatic of the Nancy Drew series.

#016 The Clue Of The Tapping Heels - 03:15pm Aug 10, 2009 PST - I thought it was funny when Mr. and Mrs. Bunce tried sneaking on to the ship by dressing as old people.
#034 The Hidden Window Mystery. - 10:49pm Aug 6, 2009 PST - I was a little disappointed by this one, and I'm not really sure why. I thought it was just O.K. Most people seem to really like it, and I usually like the 50s stories a lot myself...

#007 The Clue in the Diary - 09:11pm Jul 15, 2009 PST - I thought it was interesting how Nancy and Carson were being sympathetic towards the Raybolts. Like making sure Mr. Raybolt had a "hot meal" after they caught him, and Nancy trying to comfort Mrs...
