Below are a few interesting tidbits taken from the sites web statistics based upon most visits to these sections of the website.

Thanks for posting this again. I always find it interesting to inspect. It's especially interesting to see how 6-year-old threads are still some of the most popularly visited ones. (regarding the '70s Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew show thread.)

Much of this is Google Search Engine friendly topics (ie Reading Levels).

Yeah, I figured as much. The "Reading Levels" topic definitely makes sense for people interested in having their kids read The Hardy Boys books.
