Nancy Drew Web Con Jan. 25-31

Jenn Fisher is hosting a Nancy Drew web con on January 25-31.

Nancy Drew Web Con Information

The web con is being done as a blog with multiple articles posted each day. The registration cost is $20.00, and participants will receive a printed booklet that will be mailed out in February.

There is no deadline to register, but if you want to enjoy the web con as it happens, you will want to register by Monday.

I submitted three articles:

Buying Books on the Internet
Nancy Drew Buying Tips
Today's Nostalgia is Different From Yesterday's

In the first article, I discuss eBay, the Advanced Book Exchange, Google Product search, and Bonanzle. I give tips for using each and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each venue.

In the second article, I give an overview of the information I have presented in my series of blog posts titled "Buyer Confusion on Nancy Drew."

In the third article, I mention which Nancy Drew formats seem to be popular among new collectors and point out how collecting is changing. This last article was in my mind for a while as an idea for a future post to this blog, and I decided to write it for the web con.

Here is a list of other articles that will appear in the web con:
