Nancy Drew Diaries #4 (And Weekend Puzzle #213)

Check it out! For you hard-core collectors and readers, this will be fun news for you today. The latest Nancy Drew Diaries book, "Once Upon a Thriller" is now available on our site! Learn more about this new mystery here.


I, personally, adore bookshops and libraries. Especially book shops that have old and used books. The musty smell and feel of worn, yellowed pages with old-fashioned hardcovers and bindings are my favorite things to shop for. I often open up a book to the section right behind the title page, where the copyright info is. This is where you can most often find the publishing date and know which printing it is.

Perhaps this habit comes from all my years collecting Nancy Drew books. What does your collection look like? Do you collect the old books, or new books in addition to the Nancy Drew games?

Here's your weekend puzzle:

No Q about Scotland

Cool! I <3 ND books! :) And I just had a Nancy Drew moment! We were at a friend's house, and she showed me some old books of hers, and I found a copy of a really cool old map inside one of them! She let me borrow it for a few days, so I made a copy at Staples, (in B+W, because it was like $2.00 that way and it would have been like almost $30.00 if it was in color! :O so I just colored it in with my markers and then antiqued it with some coffee). BUT the really cool part is, (I've had the map probably since February) I just looked at it again the other day, and noticed that on it were nautical flags like in RAN! (and I heard in DDI but I haven't actually played it yet) SOOOOOOOOOO I'm going to see if I can spell out a hidden message from centuries ago using the Maritime Flag code! (lol) XD

I hope there'll be one of those inventions like the ladder in secret of the old clock or the map set up in blue moon canyon, those are great. I love books too and old ones are great, but most have chemicals on them from being in other peoples possession and if i'm around them I can get really sick... i think i lost all my nancy drew books, my sister stayed with us for awhile and my room was pretty much trashed, i didn't have very many though since you can't find them here usually. i don't know if i'm going to even bother attempting the puzzle since i just played secret of the old clock and feel really puzzled out, maybe tomorrow though.

For my early birthday present, I got 3 very OLD Nancy Drew books, Mystery of The Ivory Charm, Mystery of The Bass Bround Trunk, Mystery at the Ski Jump. I have a newly printed book as well, Nancy's Mysterious Letter.
I adore Nancy Drew so much!

P.S Silent Spy Looks amazing! Can't wait to play it!

I have the original 56 books, plus about twenty originals (the 25 chapter editions) and most of the "girl detective"series. I also have the first three in the "diaries". They are all great, but my favorites are the revised 56 and the originals.

Does that perhaps mean neither Q nor 007 will be in Scotland?

Hey, Little Jackalope! My sister Carolyn's birthday is on October 4, and she's turning 15. If it's not too much trouble, could you give her a shout out? Thanks, you're the best! She loves Danger by Design.
