Nancy Drew Obsession

In elementary school, I was a ferocious reader. I devoured books! Luckily, my mom had saved all her Nancy Drew hardbacks from her childhood, and completed the series for me. She recently brought them up to me to put on our bookshelves. I have all 56 and a few other books- a cookbook and a sleuthing book. (Don't call Hoarders on me, please!)

So I think reading all those Nancy Drew books instilled a passion for mystery stories in me. And so I guess that's what led me to get so involved in following True Crime. It's amazing to me the depth of mental illness people can have to make them commit these crimes....

I found out I was pregnant with P right after Christmas of 2002, just about the time Laci Peterson went missing. I was absolutely obsessed with following this case. I watched the specials where he was interviewed, read all the news stories.

I could go on and on about the stories I have followed (Julie Keown for example) but this past week I have just been obsessed in reading about Lauren Spierer's disappearance. There are quite a few websites out there with information that is not being reported in the news.... it's such a sad story and I hope for her family's sake they find some answers.

Have you been following?
