Hearty Hardy's

Bought: Hardy Boys Mystery Story: The Yellow Feather Mystery, by Franklin W. Dixon
Price: 75 cents (ish)
Place: Anna's Attic

If you've never read a Hardy Boys book, it's about time you get on that. There's really no reason not to read one (unless of course you like books you can't predict that have fully developed characters, unique plot lines, and intellectual dialogue. But really, who reads books like that anymore?)
Cannon Balls of Ice????? I really need to read this ASAP.

The real reason I bought this book is because it's an original 1953 copy.
Plus, I just love it (obviously more than Gary W. and Sharon Weitzner to whom it has previously belonged. Especially whichever one of them drew on it with pink marker.)
Please note the pink marker mark

Well, dear Hardy Boys, I love you for being eternally 17 and 18 years old, respectively.
I love you for solving every case with ease.
I love you for using phrases like "Holy crow!" and "Crumb!"
I love you for making fun of your fat friend Chet's weight without remorse.

We've come a long way together, haven't we?
Continue to take me on your adventures and I'll continue to love you forever.

Haha, so I have a whole box of about 30-40 of those edition Hardy Boys books down south. It was great growing up with them.
