I was delighted to find out the other day that Sue Townsend has continued to chronicle the events of Adrian's life and last month released the 6th book.
Unfortunately I have found that only the 2 most recent books are available at UK(Wh smiths) and Australian(ReadWithoutPaper) ebook stores. Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction(2004) and Adrian Mole : The Prostate Years(2009).
I am currently reading the 2004 ebook where Adrian is 34 and struggling as an educated but quite neurotic guy living a lower class existence in London and its a crackup. Well worth reading.
I loved the Adrian Mole stories.

I joined (ReadWithoutPaper) and have downloaded the last two books which you mentioned.

Very subtle English humour, which are a hoot.

Now if I could just get some Erma Bombeck in ebooks.

Cheers.
