2011 book 32

E.L. Konigsburg's From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
When I got my Kindle back in 2009, this was one of the first books I looked for (proof!). And for some reason I looked for it again yesterday and there it was! Man, this was one of my favorite books when I was little--don't you wish you could secretly live in a museum and solve a mystery? This version has a nice afterword by Konigsburg from the 35th anniversary reissue of the book, which includes a funny little Claudia-and-Jamie vignette that she gave to the people at the Newbery Award ceremony that year.
