From Laura, moments ago:
"A lot of folks are calling about availability of the Moleskine City Guides
(stores, blogs, E-Commerce sites, Moleskine fans)…
Something we want to accomplish with the limited introduction in the States
is to help support inde bookstores by driving business their way only for
the first 4 months of availability. We are not offering it to chains or
e-commerce sites until late January 07. Inde bookstores that participate
will be listed on our website www.kikkerland.com and www.moleskinerie.com in
early July so that they may start taking orders."
