I can't believe how many of you guessed I had ALL the Trixie Belden mysteries. You've really missed all my ranting about being a minimalist haven't you! I'm NOT a book collector at all...and you're glad of it considering I'm giving away my books here after I've read them.
On to the results:
I've read 15 and owned 12. I stopped buying them with my allowance money in 8th grade, but I read them for years afterwards. Comfort reads. I wanted to Be Trixie Belden in the worst way!
My favorite was THE BLACK JACKET MYSTERY. It introduced bad boy Dan Mangan from the city. Of COURSE I wanted a bad boy boyfriend from the City. (I'd say I still do but that would cause some Significant Other problems!)
Given no one actually got it totally right, it seems fair to award partial prizes. So, some of you get pages 1-100 of DAY ONE, another gets 101-150 and the third gets 150-end. Fair right?
Oh what is that howling I hear?
Sheesh,ok, three of you each get a copy of the whole book. Now, please put down the vuvuzelas.
As to the number:
JenJ at 17, Jenna Victoria at 16 and Leona at 15 were just a little too off the mark. Cat Moleski, at 6, really underestimated my love for Trixie Belden!
The winners are: Janelle at 14 and Alice at 10 who were both 2 off the mark.
Michael G-G came closest on the favorite title: he picked THE BLACK JACKET MYSTERY as my second favorite.
If each of the three of you will email me your mailing address, we'll get a copy out to you.
