Originals vs. Today - 06:29am Aug 7, 2009 PST - Thanks mysteryK, I'll check it out. I'm writing a story now that's semi-real and semi-fiction about myself and Nancy Drew shows up in the story.
Originals vs. Today - 07:39am Jul 28, 2009 PST - Neat! Thanks Green Hornet & TappingHeals.
Originals vs. Today - 02:02pm Jul 26, 2009 PST - Recently read The Bungalow Mystery, the 1930s reprint edition. I love the language but don't always know what they mean:

Page 179: The sedan skidded sideways, and for a moment Nancy held her breath, fearful least it turn turtle into the ditch. Page 180: The racing car turned turtle at the edge of the road, wavering an instant, then plunged over the side of a steep cliff!..
Originals vs. Today - 08:09am Jul 26, 2009 PST - mysteryK: No offense taken. Personally I like the 1930s Nancy Drew. We all have our favorite eras...
Originals vs. Today - 07:21am Jul 25, 2009 PST - Nancy Drew putting on her shirt inside out and backwards. I haven't come across that. But I agree that they shouldn't be "dumbing down" Nancy Drew...
