A couple of months ago, Kitty Daddy rented the new Nancy Drew movie from the video store*. Just for kicks, I put one of the original Nancy Drew mysteries on hold at the library. I figured that we would read a few pages, get bored with it, and move on. Boy, was I wrong. We have been reading a chapter a night, sometimes two, occasionally another chapter or two during the day. We are about a third of the way through our third Nancy Drew book now. Nancy Drew has even found her way into Bug's imagination and stories. When we went to the Alpaca Festival, he was carrying around a program and telling everyone he met how he was reading it and it was called "Alpaca Adventures" and how the alpacas met Nancy Drew. Apparently, the mystery novel junkie gene has been passed on!
* Quick and dirty movie review: Meh. Longer version: it was a cute movie, but didn't have much to do with the original series, other than a little good natured fun-poking.
