The Nancy Drew Challenge - COMPLETE

Now I have a well known Nancy Drew addiction.  Once I became obsessed with her and read everything I could on her character and history so I can't resist this challenge.
Deborah at Books, Movies and Chinese Food is hosting The Nancy Drew Challenge where participants are encouraged to read all 56 original Nancy Drew Mystery Stories.

Here are the guidelines:
  • Only the yellow hardback versions of the books count
  • Audio and e-books are allowed
  • Re-reads count and you can count ones you've read in the past
  • Reviews are not required
  • Crossovers are allowed
  • You don't need a blog to participate
  • .The dates for the challenge are January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.
I doubt I will review all of them because there are only 52 weeks in a year and 56 books.  But then again I might.
