A Year In Mill Valley

The Hardy Boys, The Final Chapter

Just read this article about the Hardy Boys. It awakened the smell of the children’s book section in the Osterville Library in 1964, and that feeling of not being able to wait for the next volume to be transferred from Hyannis or Chatham or wherever another boy was reading “my book”. Nathaniel is reading the Hardy Boys and Tom Swift now — which thrills me no end because I can see his book brain coming alive — but I find it hard not to fall asleep when he and I read them at night. Amazing what passes for literature for an 11 year old :-)
