I ran across a Hardy Boys: Clues Brothers book at a thrift store the other day (#12 King for a Day) so I got that to add to my collection. I honestly haven't been really worried about trying to track down that whole series, but every now and then I run across one for cheap and pick it up.

I got The Yellow Feather Mystery.   I have been reading the Mystery of Smugglers Cove from my sisters collection.

Cool! Both great books! :) 8) When you get done with the books, you should post a review! :D

Nice! Those can be hard to find nowadays- of course, sometimes it seems like it's hard to find any of the Casefiles at all (at least, at used bookstores- though I still see some here and there. It just depends on where you look and live, I guess.)

I recently upgraded a few of the original text Hardy Boys books (G&D PC cover printings) and that was neat. (Specifically, The Secret of Wildcat Swamp, The Secret of Skull Mountain and The Clue in the Embers). And I added a tweed cover G&D printing of The Tower Treasure (revised). (Would have been nice to get this with the dust jacket still on it, of course- but considering I rather shockingly :o found this in a free bin at a used bookstore- I'm not complaining.) :D 8)

Awesome, MacGyver! 8) I've read those mysteries in the revised editions and it'd be neat to read all of the originals. :)

Yeah- I read all the revised books while growing up, but it's only recently that I've read any of the original text books. I went on a binge a while back trying to get a copy of all of them and I do have all the OT books now too- it's just a matter of finding time to read them all. :)

In the case of "Skull Mountain" "Wildcat Swamp" and "Clue In The Embers", the original texts read as longer versions of the revised texts, with a few minor changes here and there.

It's good to have them, so you can read them when you have time. :)

More story, cool! 8)
