It's hard to think of anything that gives more value for money than The Enid Blyton Society Journal.
The hard work that Tony puts into producing it and the informative content must make it one of the best bargains of the twenty first century!

You deserve a gold star for effort, Pete, but sadly I think the Journal is possibly starting to die a slow death. This latest Journal has had well under half the views of any other Journal on the forums! :cry:

Thanks, Pete, for the story and the article from the journal, neither of which I had read before.

Maybe, but the number of people who've posted about it may be only a tiny fraction of the number who are reading and appreciating it (I'm guilty there, as I seem to recall I haven't got around to posting on the latest Journal thread)... :wink:

Interesting as I felt that people were making more of an effort to write about the last Journal, and I had the impression more people had commented than usual!

Or maybe Tony means less people have viewed the latest Journal on the Journal page? :?

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

It may look less because there was less time for anticipatory posts beforehand!

Very interesting article from an early Journal. I've got the W H Smith Enid Blyton Storybook too. It's a nice book with stories from the Bedside book series and it has the original illustrations too.

Here's a picture of the cover, Pete. I'm not sure where my copy is at the moment but it's a thick book containing loads of stories:

The forums thread about Journal 62 has had fewer views. We no longer have as many subscribers as we used to either. A great pity because the latest Journal was up to the usual high standard and a huge amount of work went into it as always. Of course, I'm not sure how many views a Journal thread may continue to get long after the publication of that particular Journal.
