Sorry to hear you've been in hospital, Ming. I hope you'll soon be better.

I have updated the journal index, both parts. This makes it easier to search for certain things, but it isn’t comprehensive as it could be.
The link: Index.

This link will expire in a few days but I can always add another. That’s the problem with free uploads.

Thanks very much, Lenoir. It would be a good idea to get this index up somewhere on the website, though I don't know how easy that would be. For now, I've saved the updated version to my computer.

Thanks also from me, I use your index frequently and have already downloaded the latest version. The only drawback from my point of view is that things such as the Adult stories are listed in alphabetical order and I always have to check out the Journals themselves to see if it should be No. 9 or 10 for the next story.

The adult books are listed in numerical sequence in the Author index under Blyton, Enid.

I see there were two roaring 20s stories numbered no 3 but I guess no one will notice that unless they go through the index.
I'm glad it's come in useful, I haven't used it a lot myself!

I actually use the author section more than the rest, but I hadn't noticed the numbering on Enid's stories before - that will also be very useful. I did notice when I was doing No. 4 that unfortunately I had used No. 3 twice, but once something is in print there is not much you can do about it! I toyed with the idea of missing a number but decided it was better to pretend the '3' mistake hadn't happened, so in the next Journal you will be getting No. 5!

Thanks to Tony's kind gesture and me signing up to the society I received my copy of no 46 today so I'm going to spend some time in bed with the flu and escape from it all for a bit

Happy reading

Manflu it's the worst isn't it :cry:

I really love Bill's Diary and like Sally I look forward to the next journals and I want to read Sea of Adventure and naturally also the others but that one I'm really looking forward.

Do I recall Tony saying that he planned to put the next instalments of Bill's Diary (re the Valley of Adventure) on the Society website - when can we expect that to happen Tony? So much looking forward to it!

Yes he did say that but I think it depends on when Keith, the webmaster, is free to do it. So I would think that there is probably no firm date as yet. I'm also looking forward to it.

I haven't actually even got it yet, Sally, Terry is still 'refining' it. When I do get it, as Lucky Star says, it rather depends on when Keith can find the time to add it. He has promised that the new serial will start on Monday.

I've just realised I had a dream last night where I received Journal 45, and Journal 46 fell out of the middle when I opened it up! This was all muddled in with the plumbing work I'm due to have carried out in a few weeks time (to the house, not me!).
