    You may have heard of a very happy event coming up at the end of April. It's the wedding of our very own, dear Prince William and his radiant fiance, Ms Kate Middleton. To prepare for and celebrate this wonderful occasion, For Dummies have brought us this charming guide to Royal Weddings past, present and future written by the distinguished editor of the Independent on Sunday, Julian Knight. As an extra special treat Dummies have given us a sample of the book to download for absolutely nothing. That's right, free! You can launch this splendid pamphlet in a new window, here

    What you may not realise, however, is just how close we are here in the Book Depository basement (sorry, Lower Ground Floor...) to the elegant shadow of the Castle and all things house of Windsor. Indeed, every other day, our very foundations are shaken by the stirring marching of the changing of the Irish guards. It gives us such a thrill to be able to just about see the boots of the soldiers drilling up and down the street in patriotic fashion.

    Anyway, we asked the work experience boy to knock up a handy visual guide to let you all know just how lucky we are...

      :( sorry we weren't trying to mislead anyone, we just thought the eBook was a bit amusing and that customers might think so too. We have thousands of free eBooks (complete ones) available at should you wish to download one of them instead...

      to those who complained, read the blurbage. it does say - maybe not clearly enough - that it's a 'sample'. yes, the mass of the advertising is misleading - but what does it say about those, myself included, who simply want something for nothing? i think the RW (Royal Wedding) is claptrap, but others find it enthralling - good for them. i hope they like whatever the 'sample' gives them! and no - i haven't and won't be downloading the sucker :-)

      If anyone in your company thought this was funny, you lost. I won't be back. You don't tell your customers it is free and then let the customer find out it is not the whole deal. Bye

      This book is not really free. Only the first 30 pages or so of the book are free. The title of the blog post is misleading as the perception is that you will get the book for free, when in fact it's a free sample.

      This is not a free e-book, it is a free excerpt - 29 pages. You will not, despite the dazzling & alluring promises above, find out from this free excerpt how to plan a royal street party or get a royal trivia quiz, as they are in chapters 8 & 10 of the book, and not included in the free extract. You will however, in addition to a list of royal weddings of the past given a rating out of 10, get your very own personal invitation to *buy* the book. No need to RSVP.

      Is it April 1 already? Is this book for real? Will anyone really read this guff? What next, "the Dummies guide for Dummies"?

      ingrate. I could say this about every book written about a subject that I'm not interested in, but I don't because I not so narrow minded.

      This is without doubt the most excited I've been since the wedding of Princess Edward. I quite literally cannot wait to sit myself down in front of the telly to watch William take Katherine up the aisle.

      Very interesting expose of the royal couple (to be) looking forward to the union. Will visit to Aust & NZ has been a great boost to all Down Under.
