Received today. Looks like fun! Thanks, sabeena29. I'll send this on ASAP.

Journal Entry 5 by RaineeRose from Rochester, New York USA on Monday, September 12, 2005
Hilarious! I really enjoyed this little book. It would have been even better if it had not repeated some of what Fielding wrote in the first two Bridget Jones books, but overall, it was a wonderful little read.

I'll send this on to CheriePie as soon as I've received an address. Thanks, sabeena29, for offering this ray!

**Edited to add that, as CheriePie reminded me, sabeena29 had already given me her address. Sorry for the confusion, CheriePie. I'll get this sent out to you ASAP.


Sending to CheriePie. Enjoy!

Journal Entry 7 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Monday, September 19, 2005
Got this one in the mail today. I'm not sure if it's necessary, but I had wanted to read Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which has been sitting near the top of my TBR pile, prior to reading this, so I might try to squeeze that one in right before I read this since it looks like a really quick read. :)

Journal Entry 8 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Tuesday, October 04, 2005
This was a cute and quirky, funny little read, just perfect after finishing The Edge of Reason as I just did. It's Bridget's form of a mini self help book, imparting all the wisdom she's gleaned in her adventures, such as cooking tips, dating advice, etc. Her methods, though delusional, are true-to-form Bridget. :) Thanks to sabeena29 for sharing this!

This will be off to Doris in Canada either Tuesday or Wednesday.
MAILING UPDATE: Mailed to Doris on 05-Oct-2005 via Int'l Air Mail Letter Post.

Received this today. I am reading another book (ARC for review) but I will squeeze this one in as it is a small book. I will also PM Janey-canuck for her addy as I will send this along shortly.

Thanks for sharing this. We did not have these Penguin fundrasing series here and I relish the chance to read some new Helen Fielding.

BTW, the very first page is loose. It arrived that way (it happens with books that see alot of reading). I will tape it back into place if that is okay.

Keep smilin!

Well, this book arrived today, on a day I was having a horrible day and I had hoped that this would cheer me up. It was cute, but not the humour I've come to expect from Helen Fielding.

ETA: Dropped in the mail on Dec. 19th

Journal Entry 14 by whitehorsy from Hasselt, Limburg / Limbourg Belgium on Sunday, January 15, 2006
This little book was waiting for me when I arrived home last Friday. It's a real thin book and I've read it Saturday evening... it was a funny read and very recognisable when you're familiar with the two Bridget Jones books.

Thanks for sending it along PRCS. I'll send it further to Italy as soon as I receive mickymicky's address.

Monday, January 16: sent to mickymicky

Arrived today, thanks!

Journal Entry 16 by mickymicky from Alba Adriatica, Abruzzo Italy on Friday, February 03, 2006
I have finished the book, it was a funny read and very recognisable when you're familiar with the two Bridget Jones books. Pity is very short :-)
I'm sending it today to Finland, thanks for sharing!

Journal Entry 17 by Millam from Oulu, Pohjois-Pohjanmaa / Norra Österbotten Finland on Wednesday, February 15, 2006
Bridget's guide came a few days ago, sorry I forgot to make an entry. Will probably finish it and ship it along shortly.

Journal Entry 18 by Millam from Oulu, Pohjois-Pohjanmaa / Norra Österbotten Finland on Thursday, August 10, 2006
I am very, very sorry that this ring book did stuck with me for ages. I had read it, put it in an envelope and then forgotten it into a pile of papers. Now it is finally travelling to Australia.

Journal Entry 19 by aleonblue from Brisbane, Queensland Australia on Thursday, August 24, 2006
Yay - this "little" book arrived in my post box this afternoon. It actually looks like a quick read, so might get a chance to do so this weekend...

Some wonderful Finnish stamps on the envelope which will much loved by my friend's 7 year-old daughter who collects stamps, and loves seeing those from other countries - thanks Millam!

Have PM's -Claudia- from Portugal for an address.

UPDATE - no reply from -Claudia- as at 18Sept - will try again...

Received today!
It's smaller that I thought so, in spite of having other rings to read in first, I hope not to take too much long.
Thanks for sending, aleonblue!

Journal Entry 22 by -Claudia- on Saturday, December 09, 2006
Sorry for taking this book for so long...!
It was really a quick read. It was funny, I never had read anything by Helen Fielding before (I've only seen the Bridget Jones's movies) but I think I was expecting a little more.

Thanks for sharing, sabeena29!
I'm sending it to eloisamos as soon as I get the address.

Journal Entry 23 by -Claudia- on Wednesday, January 17, 2007
