Just heard from my publisher today, and he said… “The first date of availability is next Monday (10/29). It usually takes a couple weeks before it’s on store shelves. Amazon orders will probably ship 11/2…”
So, we’ve confirmed…at long last, the official WordPress For Dummies book is reality and will be on the shelf at your local bookstore in no time! As well as Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobel, Books-A-Million and, of course, Dummies.Com and Wiley.Com.
