Guess What I bought...

I received this in the mail today.
My Blog made into a book!
It is about 1/2 inch thick and it is only blog posts from October of 2007 through December 2008.

It is 150 pages long and that was after I cut out a ton of posts I didn't need in the book.
I will enjoy re-reading my "public" hardbound journal. I decided to include peoples comments in the book. They make it more fun to read. Especially Davids. :)
I purchased the book from www.blog2print.com I liked this site a lot better than Blurb. It was much more user friendly. It is expensive though (at least for me) this 150 page book cost me right around $70. I paid an extra $10 for a hardcover. Now I just have to save up for the next one...
P.S. for Rick,
The pictures aren't the greatest quality. I could print them on my printer on nice photo paper and have the same turnout, but to me everything else is WONDERFUL. The front cover pictures look fine though.

I started one for our mission but the last page was missing. I called and asked how to add it and they said I would have to start over. First I had to wait 2 days for the first one to delete so hopefully I can get it right the next time. Thanks for telling us about this website.

Jane stole what I was going to say. So I'll just say that I agree with her comment.

I am so glad that you made a blog book - I have been hoping to make one in the future, but wondered if it was worth it. Glad to hear that you like yours. I will have to check out the site you used. Thanks for the info. :)

I LOVE blog books! I just made one and it's such a great family journal. I used blurb.com and I am really happy with the end result, but it definitely is not very user friendly.
