Source of DJS reading material?

Is anybody aware of some good reading material for those that are trying to learn Diamond Jubilee?  The exercises in the books are exceedingly lame.
I can read most of the Fables book from the angelfishy site, but it is written in Anniversary edition.

  1. Hi Lee   Unfortunately, there is no reading material for DJS as there was for Anny. I'm not sure, but I don't think there was any even for Simplified.   Ms Letha's site had some on it, but I've not been able to get on to it recently — perhaps someone could let us know if the website address has changed? I bought a Centennial book just so I could have something else to read. Those exercises are a little lame, too, but not nearly as dated as the DJS books!

  2. Hi Chuck;   I'm learning from "Gregg / Shorthand For Colleges / Volume One."  I'm somewhere around Lesson 20, but I dip backwards fairly often.   I'm not looking for graded material, though — I think that even difficult reading material (when accompanied by a good reference) is a great exercise.   Lee

  3. Just to clarify, I'm sure TODAY'S SECRETARY was still being printed when I worked for McGraw-Hill in the early 1980s. I recall our plate writer, Jerry Edleman, doing the S-90 plates for TS.


  4. I have a couple of those from the 60s and they have DJS and Simplified plates.   I'm sure there are some libraries that still have this magazine in their stacks.

  5. That is right. Be sure to check out your nearest university library in the serials section, where they bind volumes of magazines. Mine has every issue of Today's Secretary and most issues of the Gregg Writer. (All free to view, of course, if you can just find them).
