Encyclopedia Scraps

This is actually a frequent 'game' at my office, where my boss likes to see what sorts of random information I have stored away in my head. Many times he knows I'm just faster at web searches and the day I don't know something is a day he crows about like you wouldn't believe. Does anyone else remember those old Encyclopedia Brown mysteries? I loved them to pieces when I was a kid, those and the Trixie Belden books. Of course I read Nancy Drew, Mom still has some of the old hardback editions, as well as the Cherry Ames, Nurse books. Okay, the nostalgia is getting ready to drown me, here.

  1. I loved the Trixie Belden books. They reprinted the first 15 or so a few years back; I have the first 7.

  2. Yep, Encyclopedia Brown and Sally were (are?) my heroes. I’m working on collecting all the books. (Eoin will be _so_ thrilled to hear this… ::grin::)

  3. I think I checked out every Encyclopedia Brown book out from the library twice if not more. Including the one with the food mysteries that included recipes and such. Ahh the memories.
