— Since the death of Princess Diana many people have wanted to know more about the woman who captivated the world.

Royal watchers have flocked to local book stores clearing out shelves. At Borders Book Store in Cary there's not much left in print about the princess. Even recently released special editions ofTimeand Newsweekmagazines are almost gone.

Anyone looking for publications about Diana will have his work cut out for him. What's happening at Borders is happening all over. People just can't seem to get enough of information about the princess.

Borders Manager Kathleen Rollins says there is a flurry of Diana related sales that has overwhelmed everything else in the store.

Even though current items are selling out, Rollins says reprints of some the hot selling items will be arriving over the next few weeks. Most books about the princess will probably become more widely available by October or November. Anyone interested in purchasing the items, she says, would be well advised to place an advance order.
