Title: Favorite Hardy Boys book (Corrected Poll)
Post by: MacGyver on March 06, 2014, 10:01:30 AM
Okay- here is the revised version of this poll. I've added two spinoff series I'd previously forgotten (thanks to tomswift2002 for the reminder about The Hardy Boys UB Supermystery books) and I corrected the number of volumes in the Nancy Drew GD and Hardy Boys UB Supermystery crossover series. (again- thanks to tomswift2002 for the catch.)
       I threw in both of the novelizations from The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries in with the supplemental spinoff books section, along with the 8 comic books released on earlier Hardy Boys series (The Mickey Mouse Club serials and The Hardy Boys cartoon.)
This particular section can be considered a miscellaneous section, which could incorporate a number of items- I could have listed The Hardy Boys Guide to Life book there, for that matter, but I was trying to stick with fiction rather than nonfiction. And of course, there are still other things- like The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew crossover miniature coloring books that were released in Cookie Crisp cereals back in 1978 and probably other things I forgot.
       I didn't bother to list The Hardy Boys video games, though one could argue they tell a story too- but I was relegating this poll to the various book series.
     But hopefully this will be a pretty comprehensive list for The Hardy Boys fiction works. :) 8)

The Hardy Boys Supplemental Spinoff category got truncated in its listing- I guess the poll boxes can only hold so many characters. Here's the entire listing:

The Hardy Boys Supplemental Spinoff books (The Hardy Boys Detective Handbook [original and revised], The Hardy Boys Handbook: Seven Stories of Survival, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Supersleuths! 1, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Supersleuths! 2, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Campfire Stories, The Hardy Boys Ghost Stories, and The Hardy Boys activity books, TV show episode novelizations, and TV show-based comic books, etc.)

I voted for
The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #1-190 (revised)
Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: Be A Detective Mystery Stories
The Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers Graphic Novels
If I had to choose just one it would be: The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #1-190 ;D

I have a feeling you voted for all of them, right, MacGyver? ;)

Cool- those are the books I grew up reading (along with some of the Original text stories), so those are definitely some of my favorites. I love The Hardy Boys in general and I'm happy to read them all- but even so, I have a certain fondness for the original stories and Digests and Casefiles too.
