I had an email yesterday saying that Judy the Guide (and another title) had arrived.

ETA - the other title is The Pen and Pencil Girls by Clare Mallory.

GGBP have announced Deira Joins the Chalet School to be published in September. Congratulations Caroline, I can't wait to read it!

Also The Two Families by Margaret Biggs, one of my favourite GGBP authors.

Thanks - and congrats to you on your Drabble Award.

I have just had a look at it (congratulations Caroline!) and was a bit surprised to see that the page went on and on and I had to scroll across for miles in order to read about it. Another one that I looked at (by Margaret Biggs I think) was the same. Has anyone else had that problem, or is it just me? And if it is me, what can I do to make it easier to read the information?

I think it must be something in your settings Fatima, mine comes up as normal. Has yours done this before?

No, it hasn't. But I haven't see the GGB website in this format before. I think they've changed it recently? Where do I find my settings, please? (I'm useless with technology!)

I'm half tempted by "Camp" but on a tight budget at the moment. I have a 1960s Armada paperback of it and the lists say that Camp is "uncut".

Really? not one word? Have I really no excuse to buy it?

'Camp' isn't as badly savaged as others such as "Three Go" or "Coming of Age", but it does have a number of interesting little asides and minor details missing.

'Exploits' is said to be uncut but having just acquired the hardback (thanks, brie!) I spent an interesting afternoon comparing it with the paperback. OK, nothing major is missed but the character is different! get 'Camp' - you know it makes sense!

SLOC bought me an elderly, fragile hardback for my birthday on Saturday - cheaper than the GGBP, so obviously saving money . . . I'm saving it up for when I really need a good read. Thanks!
