I'm Going to Read a Nancy Drew book...finally
- •I'm going to read a Nancy Drew book. Probably The Old Clock.That's the first one, isn't it?
- •I always wanted to read Nancy Drew books as a kid.
- •Instead I devoured The Hardy Boys books.I'm a slow reader, was slower as a kid, and didn't read much. So by "devoured" I mean that I read 5 or 6, but for me that was devouring.
- •But boys weren't allowed to read Nancy Drew books, which bugged me to no end.
- •The girls read them and raved about them.
- •But I want allowed.
- •Because I was a boy.
- •As an adult, I realized that being "not allowed" to read Nancy Drew was just something that I believed. Nobody ever told me that.
- •I just thought they we're girl books and guys weren't supposed to read girl books
- •So screw it. I'm finally going to read me some Nancy Drew!
