Title: The State of the Hardy Boys Encyclopedia - 2017 Edition
Post by: SkyWarp on January 01, 2018, 02:05:35 PM
Another year has come and gone, and it is that time again to look back and see how things have progressed over the past year. 

We've added three more books' characters to the encyclopedia and added covers and summaries for scores of older books. 

Below are a few interesting tidbits taken from the site's web statistics based upon most visits to these sections of the website.   One of the most interesting is that a Undercover Brothers specific character (Vee Sharp) has pushed out a Casefiles specific character (Vanessa Bender) from the top ten this past year. 

An asterisk(*) denotes that a particular item was not in the top list last year.
