  1. Hi, parts 1-3 of the new 52 reading order don’t seem to be loading, not sure if it’s just my chrome or if there’s something with those pages

    This site is incredible thank you for all the work!

    • Hi David, thanks for bringing that problem to my attention – I’m not sure what’s causing it yet, but I’m going to work on it.

      And you’re very welcome – it’s a labour of love.

      • David Fergusson

        Hi, just wondering if you’ve got a copy on pages 1-3 in another format I could get a copy of as pages 1-3 still seem to be having issues

        • Hi David, the content on those pages should be readable again now. Reformatting them is going to take a few more days, but for now at least they’re there again.
