I was going to put this on the general chat thread about the book, but thought it might get lost.

I pre-ordered my copy when it was first mentioned.....I've just noticed that I got an email on 30th from Waterstones saying that the publishers had confirmed it was not curently available.

how so???? is this because the launch has been put back? I know others have received theirs already though.

wassup with it MNHQ?

I got mine from Amazon yesterday - not had chance to read any of it yet though

Daisy, I ordered mine yesterday and got the same message from Amazon

LackaDAISYcal · 03/02/2009 20:42

Obviously MN underestimated how popular it would be. I'm miffed though as I ordered it a couple of weeks ago

It was actually. I think Waterstones was £2 more expensive!

I have just cancelled my waterstones order and re-ordered from amazon - the website says it is in stock. It was also cheaper on Amazon.

LacksaDAISYcal: we're a bit puzzled to hear about that email you got from Waterstone's.

Would you mind forwarding it to us ([email protected])?

And then we can shout at someoneinvestigate...

HelenMumsnet - I got the same email as LacksaDAISYcal and have just forward it to you in case it helps. I also plan to cancel and reorder from Amazon.

HelenMumsnet · 04/02/2009 23:22

Thanks all. We will jump up and down screaming find out what's going on ASAP

You need to use a proper, independent bookshop.

"Waterstone's" know nothing about anything.

I got one of those from Waterstones, and have since also had a despatch one (on Tues I think). No sign of the book yet though.. getting impatient!

LackaDAISYcal · 05/02/2009 13:51

thanks for your mail helen
