I'm tempted to buy the complete Nancy Drew collection (new/hardcover/boxed set) for 93$. I never even liked Nancy Drew as a kid. Why is this a temptation?!

Now, I liked (and like) Nancy Drew, but I wouldn't be tempted by the new versions. First of all, at least 1 of the titles, and I think 2 or more had more than one story with the same name (I have 2 copies of the Whispering Statue, both with very different stories), the new ones have been modernized and in ways I don't really like, and the ones written by the ghost writers versus the ones written by the original writer do get worse as time goes on.
