I Will Not Hold on to The Edge of Reason

Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding
Weight: 12.8 oz
Method of Disposal: It is, hopefully, being sold in some thrift store right now for 25 cents.

There is so much I want to write about tonight, and there is even something I want to paint. None of it is about books or my library and, yet, I feel like I need to make a post so here goes:
There are some books you cannot fathom why they are a part of your collection or you try to ignore the fact that you remember exactly how they got there so that you can act like some fairy or something planted them when you were not looking. You wouldn’t want anyone to know you actually OWNED them, much less read them. Enter BRIDGET JONES.

I got this book from my stepmother when she was trying to get rid of junk she did not care about. I took it because I felt like I should. Who wants to see a book get tossed out? I also wanted to know what all of the fuss was about with this Ms. Jones. Well, sometimes you should let a book get tossed out. Because I cannot seem to do that I have donated it in hopes that there is anyone left in the world who would want to read such a thing still looking for said thing. I do fear that any person interested in this novel has already found it, read it, and moved on. In that case, I have done a misdeed by transferring my weight to some unfortunate person or entity, and I apologize. People do like to sneak peeks at other people’s diaries and journals so maybe just maybe…are you out there?

If nothing else, Renee Zellweger can be pretty cute, and it looks like she had a lot of fun acting in the ridiculous book turned movie X 2. So, thank goodness for that.

Goodbye and good riddance, Ms. Jones. 129 lbs, 21 cigarettes, 14 units of alcohol, 4000 plus calories, and all.
