I'm surprised horthhill's library, the Vancouver Public Library purchased this book since it has a fairly short shelf life, since after the royal wedding/April 29, 2011, only the biography parts would be probably relevant, and that would be covered by other books. Still, even with the Description, I'm a bit jealous and curious if there was any more fun or more info than was covered in all the magazines I've read. However, I have my doubts that EPL will pick this book up since it's after the royal wedding. Maybe the bookstore will keep it in stock for a bit. *** Actually, since this ended up the in the Recently Reviewed page. Maybe if there is several Suggest for Purchase the EPL might consider it? Worth a try.

Well, it's July 8th, 2011 [before I had to edit the Comment] and I see it's on order. Yayyy! I'll have to be sure until it comes into the catalog as a purchased item. (And with this comment posted, now I know how some users end up with double comments, since when I tried to edit my comment it was blank and I just pasted my original message since I was expecting to paste over the old message.)

Amazing how quickly The Royal Wedding for Dummies was published. Like all dummies books, it does a really good job of getting you up to speed. It has info on William and Kate, the royal family, Westminster Abbey and where the best views are likely to be on the wedding day.
