Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel of Parajunkie.com and Alison of Alison Can Read  If you want to join in the fun just head over the blogs mentioned above and start checking out the various answer for today's question:

Q: Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it? 

This could be taken in two parts. ☺ During my grade school years, I was positively drawn to Nancy Drew's world and every summer, I re-read the books because Nancy's character was teaching me (a young kid) to be self-reliant, calm in the face of danger, observant etc. The older published books also  had illustrated pages in them so that always got my imagination to go overdrive and I pictured that I was with Nancy, Bess and George. ☺ Thanks to mom who introduced me to the series and passed the love for the super sleuth's adventures to me too. She still love the books if her eyes weren't a problem.

Second shelf
The next series that I loved going back during my high school and college days was Star Trek: The Next Generation books series because obviously, the show was a huge fave back then and here, I loved reading characters who are confident and thought solutions to the problems facing them. Some authors were gentle to the readers and didn't pepper the story with techno-babble like this one below which was one of my faves. Unfortunately, like all things, I simply moved on and now, post-college and during this phase we call working 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, I don't know yet. ☺Although I seemed to be building MCH books and Heather Graham books. ☺

  3. Nancy Drew! When I was younger I was obsessed with those books. I really should see if they're still lying around somewhere.
