“A person who publishes a book willfully appears before the populace with his pants down. If it is a good book nothing can hurt him. If it is a bad book nothing can help him.”

Edna St. Vincent Millay (American poet and dramatist, 1892-1950)

PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  My Project 365: 2009 Blurb book

Ta-da!  I had my 2009 blog posts published by Blurb and it was delivered this morning.  What finally sucked me in was the 20% off promotion they had in the month of July.  My 384 page, 13x11, hardcover, image wrapped book ended up costing about 37 cents a page (including shipping) - I’ll let you do the math on that.   Each photo in the book is around 5x7 inches.  I figured if I just had them printed at that size at Wally World, they would have been 58 cents each and that’s not bound in a book with all my long-winded sermons by each picture. So I think it was well worth it.  The kids are loving it - they think they are famous.  I told them just around our house kiddos, just around our house..

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I wish I could flip through that book. I love your pictures and you kept me going last year. :)

Congratulations on a job very well done. You should be so proud of yourself! Your photos were beautiful and the write ups inspirational. :)

I might have to get a book done of mine at the end of the year - though that price seems a little steep!

wow sounds and looks good! I wish I could flip through the book, too - as Jennifer said. Maybe you´ll show us a picture from inside.

Are the comments also inside or only your own journaling?
