    I'm going to take a trip down memory lane. Is it just me or did anyone else ever read the adventures of Encyclopedia Brown?

    I loved reading those books when I was a kid. All the books had the Playbill font on the pages and Encyclopedia would never be wrong. There were those kids and villains that kept on trying with their schemes to frame Encyclopedia Brown but he always saw through it.

    Man, those were darker times, simpler times.

    I had actually forgotten all about these books. I used to read and love them too.

    It seems like his shoes were always untied, I think.

    I loved those books. I knew all of the solutions to all of his cases. My favorite was when Sally solved the crime because she knew more about etiquette than Encyclopedia.

    I loved the one about the guy who tried to win Sally over by posing a fake fight with another big kid but Encyclopedia saw through it and told Sally how he did it.

    Whenever I see a picture of pro2A it reminds me of EB as I interpreted Donald J. Sobol's description of the sleuth de la youth.

    Speaking of Sobol, did any of you read the Two-Minute Mysteries series?

    I remember reading one book in the 6th grade. I think it was where he first moved to the town or something.
