This week Mushrooms of British Columbia, which has been a BC #1 bestseller for two weeks, leaped to #2 on the Canada-wide nonfiction list maintained by Booknet Canada.
Because of its popularity, this new guide has become increasingly hard to find. The distributors have emptied their shelves of the first printing, so bookstores can’t restock (hint: the biggest supply in the metro Victoria area seems to be at Munro’s Books). In addition, Amazon Canada is promising to have books in stock by December 8.
A new printing is in progress, so the books should be back on bookstore shelves by the end of December. If you are hoping to get this book by Christmas, and Munro’s or Amazon Canada are not options for you, then we suggest that you order directly from Royal BC Museum Books site–copies ordered from there will ship directly from the printer on December 17 and may arrive in time for Christmas, depending on the mails.
