    Knew that would grab your attention!

    How do you read Minimins? Do you start with the top thread and read and reply to that, or go from the bottom?

    Just asking, as it has taken me over an hour to catch up with all I missed this week. There must be a better way! :)

    PMSL Andy - knew it! ;)

    Deffo not a teacher mommy - I go to work to get away from them! (not really) :) I've never heard of those reading methods. Wonder how a child would read from the bottom up?

    And Susie, your method intrigues me. I shall investigate further. :cool:

    I start at the bottom, By the way "top Down" and "bottom up" ate programming terms.

    Susie, you only need to click the arrow by the last poster on on a thread that takes you straight to the end.

    I also make sure I click on the Atkins link at the top after the first post I read so I can see any new posts I'm not suscribed to.

    The iPod app is great. Just click a thread and you go straight to the first unread post then one button takes you straight back to the list
