Bayport/River Heights Library ~ The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew – Whatcha Reading?

   You’re now at the Bayport/River Heights Library, a place to post the title of The Hardy The Hardy Boys Starter SetBoys book and/or Nancy Drew book you’re presently reading, about to read, or just read. 🙂 This virtual library is nice, comfy and fun! As you can picture in your mind’s eye, it’s a beautiful multiple story stone building with grand double doors that are designed to look exactly like a book. To enter, you just open one as if moving the front cover of a book. Then you step inside and are immediately greeted with the sight of an amazing huge room that is bright and cheery with shelves of cool books lining all of the walls. The library is filled with the presence of light. You take notice of the especially comfortable looking couches and Nancy Drew Starter Setchairs including bean bag chairs (that’s what I would pick 😀 ). Some friends are already there reading, but they pause from their individual mysteries to give you a warm smile and friendly wave, happy to see you. After you greet them in return, your eyes travel upward as something draws your attention. An incredible view of the brilliant sky seen through the large skylight built into the elevated ceiling meets you. The same craftwork of details can be seen in the large windows on the main floor that you turn your focus on. Window seats with soft cushions accompany each one. A great view of creation can be seen through the window and you Nancy Drew #11 The Clue of the Broken Locket by Carolyn KeeneHardy Boys 82 Blackwing Puzzle by Franklin W Dixonpause to drink in the sight. Once you reluctantly move your gaze from that, you notice as you look toward the right and toward the left of the main area there are two freestanding spiraling staircases which you can travel to the second level. Once there you can walk along perusing the many volumes filling the shelves all the way around the building. A beautifully crafted railing, much like what is on the spiral staircases, adorn the outermost part of the walkway. From there you can see the entire layout of the library.

  1. Right now I’m working on reading Hardy Boys Mystery Story #34, The Hooded Hawk Mystery. Some of it’s pretty cool as far as Hardy family & friends are written, but some of the stuff unique to this book is incorrect and not cool. There are lots of other books I’d rather read than to ever re-read this one. 😎

    Appreciating the good things,

    • Ah, yep, I’ve read this one, and I agree with you wholeheartedly, Lily. Some of it’s okay, but some just isn’t. Not the worst book ever, of course, but didn’t make sense at times and slow in parts. The best part is the action at the conclusion – let me know when you’re finished with the book and what you feel is the best part. 🙂

      • Cool! 🙂 😎 We started a new page, Ann! 😀

        Thank you. 🙂 😎 Yep. I’m looking forward to that! 🙂 😉 😎 Will do. 🙂

        Appreciating the good things,

  2. Recently ordered Hardy Boys #149 The Chase of The Mystery Twister. Can’t wait to read it! Sounds exciting!

  3. While I did not have internet(the whole of last month), I read “The Clue in the Embers” book. I have already forgotten a lot of it. *sighs*

    Can anyone suggest some good ones from this series?

    • Good use of your time, Ritu! 😉 😀 😎 Hardy Boys books are great to read! 🙂 I haven’t read The Clue in the Embers yet, but I expect to sometime this year – it comes right after The Hooded Hawk Mystery.

      #14 The Hidden Harbor Mystery & #21 The Clue of the Broken Blade are two of my favorites. 🙂 I love reading them! 😀 😎

      • Great recommendations, Lily! 🙂 I’ve been wanting to re-read The Clue of the Broken Blade. 🙂 😎 Both of #14 and #21 have a lot of great scenes, action, cool brothers, family – a number of fave parts in them! 🙂

        The Clue in the Embers – one of the ugliest HB covers ever. 😛

        • Thanks, Ann! 🙂 Hey, whenever you’re ready to read The Clue of the Broken Blade – let me know and we can read it together, if you want to. 🙂 Yes, there certainly are! 🙂 😎

          That’s a very nice way to put it – I know exactly what that cover looks like! 😮 o_O O_o

          Appreciating the good things,

          • 🙂 You got yourself a deal, Lily! 🙂 Of course I want to – that’ll be fun! 🙂 Yep! 🙂

            😆 Yeah! 😛 I just don’t care for it! 😛

      • You don’t have to read that Clue in the Embers book. Not a good one.

        I agree with you on those two. They are two of my favs, too! 😀 I particulary remember really liking #14. I even remember the pic of that lighthouse island. 🙂

  4. Just finished rereading the Hardy Boys UB #8 Top Ten Ways to Die, and *sigh* I felt I was reading it for the first time. Loved it! ❤
    Honestly, at first I was nervous of rereading as I never really usually reread as I'm always afraid that what if reading books the second time was not the same as first time, and how glad I read one of my fav HB the second time! 🙂

    • I’m happy for you, Seema! 🙂 I enjoyed reading that one as well. 🙂

      I understand what you’re saying and I’m thankful for books like this because they’re definitely re-readable! 🙂 Some books I have read many times and enjoyed them just as much each of those times. 🙂

      • Thanks! Cool! 🙂

        Definitely! 🙂 Yeah, I really enjoyed reading it the second time, and planning on rereading my other favorite HB and ND. 🙂 ❤ Who knows, I may end up reading some of them the third time.

        Happy reading!

        • 🙂 Good mysteries are fun to read numerous times when they are well-done! 🙂 Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books are pretty good at meeting that requirement! 😉 Ann’s stories are the most re-readable stories I’ve read – they’re even better than the books! 🙂

          Thank you; you, too! 🙂

    • Oh, cool! 😀 So many great, cool scenes in that one! A fave HB UB for me, too! 🙂 It’s awesome when a book is so enjoyable that you can read it over and over and not get tired of it. That’s the way a book should be! 🙂 😎

    • Good to know that! 🙂 Thanks to you, I now have a UB book on my should-be-soon-read list. 😉 😀

  5. I read the HB-Tom Swifts’s “Time Bomb” sometime last month. It was a good book in the science fiction way! Also, there were some really nice moments between Frank and Joe. I liked this book! 😎 😀

    I read a HB graphic novel, also, around the same time. That one was forgettable.(I am not able to recall its name. It was the 7th one I think. The one which had a mystery in/on a train.) I found its plot rather silly.

  6. Missed mentioning…The ones I recently read are: the HB mystery story #18 The Twisted Claw, the Case files #59 Open season, #71 Real Horror and#72 Screamers. Now reading the UB book, Running on fumes. 🙂

    • That’s cool you’re on a HB reading spree, Ritu! 🙂 Another friend of mine gave me some Casefiles and Open Season is one of them…I didn’t like it. Screamers and The Twisted Claw are better definitely. Both have good parts. 🙂

      • Hi Ann! ‘Screamers’ had many good parts, just like you said. 🙂

        By the way, I read “The House On The Cliff” recently. Loved that one. Definately one of the good HB books! 😀

  7. Hey everybody! 😀 😎 I sure have missed visiting this blog while I was without internet for so long! This is such a cool site that Ann has done such a wonderful job creating! 😀 😎 I’m trying to decide which Hardy Boys books I’m going to read next so I’m looking at her blog! 😀 😎 Great ideas here! 😀 😎

      • Hey Ann! 😀 😎 Thank you! 🙂 The Clue of the Broken Blade. 😎 It’s one of my favorites! 😀 😎

Please leave a reply - that would be awesome! :)
