Bridget Jones, we missed you! Thank goodness she’s coming back in the pages of Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy, a new book by author Helen Fielding, due out this October. The TODAY show revealed the cover this morning, which included one of her Jones’s new rules plastered on the front: “Do not text when drunk.” It hints at the topics Fielding covers this time around, including dating in the modern world, and all of the fun (and anxiety) that goes along with it. In an excerpt, Fielding writes the following description: “You see, this is the trouble with the modern world. If it was the days of letter-writing, I would never even have started to find his address, a pen, a piece of paper, an envelope, a stamp, and gone outside at 11.30 p.m. to find a postbox. A text is gone at the brush of a fingertip, like a nuclear bomb or Exocet missile.” The book comes out October 24, 2013. Ladies, prep your book clubs!
