I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Mystery Books

Me - Mystery Books, wow! I love a good mystery book. I have read many mystery books. I have read Nancy Drew, The Bobbsey Twins and The Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley. My favorite are the Mary Kate and Ashley ones. Mysteries are interesting because you can try to predict what is going to happen.  You think you have it all figured out, and then it turns out to be completely different. There are always so many things happening at once. Sometimes, there is even more than one mystery going on at once. In fact, sometimes there are so many mysteries that the group has to split up to solve them all. Sometimes, in mystery books, in the first few chapters if you missed the first few books in the series, it will fill you in on what happened in previous books. Mystery books are so cool!

Mom- I like a good mystery. Sometimes, I like to watch them on televison, and sometimes, I like to read them. When I was young, I liked The Bobbsey Twins, The Happy Hollisters and especially Nancy Drew. I loved Nancy Drew. I would read one a day, and I read almost the entire series. Of course, now they have a new Nancy Drew series in addition to the old one so there are a lot more books. I even read a few Hardy boy books, but I liked the TV series way better than the books because I had a crush on the show's stars, Sean Cassidy and Parker Stevenson. When I was older, I started loving Agatha Christie's mysteries. I started reading them when I was a teenager visiting Greece with my grandmother. I was always reading in my spare time.  I finished all the books I had brought with me. The only English books they had in the hotel gift shop that interested me at all were Agatha Christie's so I bought a few, and I was hooked. I ended up reading almost every book Agatha Christie ever wrote. The only ones I didn't read were the ones I could never find. However, I don't even remember the names of those anymore. Nowadays, I still read the occasional mystery, but not as much as I used to, and I haven't found any mystery writer that I like better than Agatha Christie.

And that's our view. Tune in Monday for another topic.
