Whether you are single, married, or simply Fry-curious, Mrs Stephen Fry, the world's almost leading relationship expert, leads you gently but firmly though the marital process from proposal to divorce, dispensing invaluable and unique advice alongside spectacular recipes, incomparable poetry and candid personal accounts of her first meeting with Stephen and their almost perfect wedding day. You will learn where to find Mr or Miss Right without the aid of night vision goggles, how to marry them as cheaply as possible and, if you wish, how to stay married to them. As well as revealing how to keep the magic alive in a relationship and how to cope with Christmas and the in-laws, Edna shares her childcare secrets, household management tips (including how best to sweep things under the carpet) and talks frankly and explicitly about you-know-what. You may never be able to have a marriage as perfect as Mrs Fry's but if you read this book, follow her advice and ignore page 162, you may just have an Almost Perfect Marriage. 'A good husband is like a good wine - smooth, full bodied and best kept in the cellar' Edna Fry

Quite an amusing book. I love the names of the kids.

Journal Entry 9 by wingCassandra2020wing at Edinburgh Book Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Thursday, August 16, 2018

Released 3 mos ago (8/19/2018 UTC) at Edinburgh Book Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Bringing to the Bookcrossing BookFest meetup, but if it is not taken, it will end up as part of my Festival Release Challenge:

During the Edinburgh Festival 2010 I wild released 50 books around various venues to 'celebrate' my birthday. I got 9 'catches' which I thought was pretty good going.

It proved to be quite addictive, so for the 9th year in a row I thought I'd do it again. Collecting 50 books to release is quite a challenge, so not all the books are ones that I've read, if they are then my journal entry will be somewhere above.

Expect releases to take place between 1st August 2018 and 1st September 2018.

Thank you for picking up this book. I hope you enjoy reading it & look forward to reading your journal entry & those that follow. You don't have to join to journal (you can do that anonymously) but it's free, so if you're a bookworm that likes to pass on books, why not join in.

I will try & update these release notes with the actual details ASAP after release and will tweet their location as I go (@cassandra2020)

Picked up HOW TO HAVE AN ALMOST PERFECT MARRIAGE by Mrs Stephen Fry, it positively leapt off the coffee table at a Book Swap meeting yesterday and slid into one of my carrier bags. I’m expecting Edna Fry to be as well-read as her husband and to have some key pointers to where I have gone so horribly wrong and how to rectify those situations as relevant.

Journal Entry 11 by rainbow3 at Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Saturday, August 25, 2018
A joy of varying proportions and all told thoroughly thought through. From this you easily intuit who is on the throne and who is the power behind it - the woman’s a genius!

Some nourishing quotes:
‘[WHO TO MARRY] If you find dating sites a little ‘full-on’ and you prefer a more casual approach, there are several social networking sites that allow you to make contact with like-minded (i.e. socially inept) people such as yourself. The popular friendship site Facebook, for example allows you to exchange pleasantries, banalities and farm animals in you pursuit of eternal love.
If your social and literary skills are even more basic, however, don’t worry – Twitter could be for you. With its 140 character limit and proliferation of acronyms and poor grammar, it’s the social networking site of choice for everyone from reality TV stars to professional footballers to nobodies like you. Page 4

‘THE HONEYMOON …no matter where you go or what you get up to, the important thing is that you have this transitional period of adjustments between the joyous, thrilling, romantic roller-coaster-ride of the wedding and the interminable decades of marriage ahead.’ Page 46

‘FIRST STEPS [baby] There is no moment to compare with the first time you see your baby take its first steps. All of a sudden, that once helpless bundle of bodily fluids is a toddler. You have to buy gates for the stairs, move your best crockery and hide the cat. What was once your domain is now a toy-strewn, juice spattered nightmare.’ Page 108

…And all much authenticated by complications, [oops, no that should read compilations] created with the assistance of Vaguelytruepedia.com – sterling stuff indeed!
