I just realized that Jennifer from Series Books for Girls blog has a web site with summaries of a lot of books: http://www.series-books.com/ . Her overviews of series like Ruth Fielding, Trixie Belden, and Cherry Ames.

Here's a bit more about her site, which is totally amazing! I love the cover art archive, the summaries, and her analysis and summary of the way the stories and characters develop over time.

This site was designed with three goals: to provide information about many of the more obscure series books; to display cover art galleries not readily available on other sites; and to present information in an easy to find fashion. It is my hope that I have succeeded on all three points.

When I first began collecting series books during the early 1990s, I focused on the more common series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Dana Girls, Judy Bolton, Connie Blair, and Kay Tracey. When I first used the internet during the late 1990s, I was able to easily obtain information concerning these series by searching the web. After 2000, I gradually branched out into the more obscure series such as Peggy Lane, and my search for Peggy Lane information was the catalyst for the creation of this site. I could only find one site on the internet with the information I was seeking, and it was difficult to find.

Y'all, I'm so happy that other people share my weird, embarrassing fandom!
