Printing Error in New ‘Bridget Jones’ Book

For those of you who have been waiting for the new Bridget Jones novel Mad About the Boy to come out, you might have something else to be mad about — printing errors!

According to The Guardian, publisher Random Penguin accidentally printed forty pages of actor David Jason’s memoir My LifeĀ in some copies of Mad About the Boy. Now, of course, there’s speculation that this is playing into why some of the reviews for the new Bridget Jones’ book have been mediocre. But I’d venture to say that the messed up copies of the books might be worth more someday, no?

Get Mad About the Boy in hardcover for $13.99.

Or get it on your Kindle for $10.99.

New ‘Bridget Jones’ Book On the Way

After two Bridget Jones novels and two movies, you might have thought Bridget’s story was over. But author Helen Fielding isn’t done writing it yet.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Fielding is working on a third installment to the bestselling Bridget Jones’s Diary series. To keep up with the times, Fielding says the chapters will start off with Bridget’s tweets, rather than her diary entries. A release date has not yet been set.

Speaking of third installments, a third Bridget Jones movie is also in the works, but the third book will not follow the storyline of the third movie. Apparently, there’s also talk about a Bridget Jones musical!

Sounds like a whole lot of Bridget to me! I never read the books, but I saw the first movie and didn’t enjoy it very much. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the new book? Will you read it?
