Nancy Drew Books

nancydrewtat

I began collecting Nancy Drew books in third grade.  I attribute my adult awareness of the wonder and mystery of the world back to those yellow hardcover books.  The main focus of my collection is the 1970s/1980s editions of the books.  I have Nancy tattooed on my right arm.
