What Are You Reading?
I'm actually "playing" with a book right now, rather than reading it. As an early birthday present, a friend gave me a copy of an oversized book,The Lost Files of Nancy Drew. It purports to be Nancy Drew's newly discovered notes about her early cases, beginning with The Secret of the Old Clock. It's what reviews call "an interactive book". In other words, it's a lift-the-flap, open-the-envelope type of book, just fun. Open a paper to find Nancy Drew's list of supplies needed for sleuthing. Or, there's her housekeeper's recipe for chicken and rice. There are summaries of a number of her cases. But, one of my favorite notes comes from The Hidden Staircase. There are a number of amateur sleuths who could learn a thing or two from Nancy Drew. She's smart enough to say when heading off to a strange location, let someone know where you're going so they can try to locate you if you don't show up in a reasonable amount of time. This is such a fun gift that brings back so many memories. I loved this series.
What books are you reading or listening to, or even playing with, this week? I hope you've found something to enjoy. Let us know, please.
