Today's Theme: Did you read as a child? If so, did you have a favorite fictional character that you admired or wanted to be?

I  love to read now and have always loved to read. I remember when I was younger (alot younger), I loved to read Nancy Drew books. Back then, I had the hardback books, they weren't in paperback. I still have all my original Nancy Drew books, which are over 30 years old. (guess I'm aging myself, huh?)

Every year for Christmas, my great grandmother would add to my collection of Nancy Drew books. I always knew what I was going to get, but that was OK because I loved these books so much! I just couldn't wait to see what the next mystery was and what was going to happen. I also couldn't wait until I got the new books in the series to read.
