Hey, yes, I see why the Nancy Drew and Hardy boys older stuff is a lower 
priority for you as many of them are available. You'll probably be filling in 
the gaps for Nancy Drew but not sure about Hardy boys.  I never knew there were 
so many Nancy Drew mystery stories but I'm not sure where classics stop and 
moderns start. I'm just glad you and others are making these things available 
for kids. If I had a kid, I'd get them to read some from older generations and 
some from today so they could appreciate how our culture and history have 
changed and developed yet some things stay the same.  Thanks again and keep up 
the great work.

  Thanks for appreciating our work on older, but timeless books.  I am LOVING 
it and cannot get enough of these older series.  I have a number of the 
original Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys to work on, but they are down on my list 
since they are so much more available than some of my hard to find series.

their hard work to make the Cherry Ames series, the Vicki Barr series, the 
Connie Blair series, Kay Tracy, sugar creek gang series, the sierra Jensen and 
other books by Robin Jones Gunn, the love inspired suspense and other books 
under this label, books by Francine Rivers and Al Lacy and many other wonderful 
fiction authors and many other such books.  I am sure I am one of many who 
applaud your efforts and strongly encourage you to continue your top quality 
work in getting these and other timeless pieces of literature out there for 
people of all ages to read some fantastic literature that would not otherwise 
be available.  I feel like a kid at Christmas every day when I check the lists 
and find titles I really like of this nature and many others being added to the 
collection, in process, awaiting approval, and in the works being scanned 
and/or ready for checkout to be proofread.  Your dedicated hard work is 
appreciated more than you'll ever know and more than I could ever express.  I 
want to see more of this type book as well as older Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys 
and other clean books for many generations of not only children in this 
generation but "kids" of all ages who are reading what they were not able to 
read due to lack of equal access with their piers as a child or teenager.  
Thanks again and keep up the diligent work.
