Nancy Drew for your computer and the Internet and used books

I have to admit that I’ve never read any Nancy Drew books. However, considering that Nancy has been around since 1930 I have to give her mad props because people still read her mysteries and she is as popular as ever. USA Today reports that Her Interactive has released another Nancy Drew Mystery entertainment software package. The article indicates that the program is appropriate for kids as young as 10 and that it would be a great program for kids and parents to play together.

A study released Wednesday confirms that the Internet is a huge venue for selling used books reports the L.A. Times. According to the Book Industry Study Group sales of used books on the Internet topped 2.2 billion in 2004. That is an 11% increase over the previous year. The lower prices are the biggest factor in purchasing used books over the Internet.
