I need to print a couple of books. I've used blurb once, but shipped the results straight to my grandmother so I never got to see them. What's a good quality (but reasonably priced) service out there, that you have experience with and can recommend? I want decent quality, but not high cost, for possibly 100 pages glossy double sided.

The meaning of life is simple: we exist to use our senses and consciousness to appreciate a universe that might otherwise go unappreciated in its eons of vast silence.

I just used Blurb to print a 75 page book and I was very happy with the quality.

Blurb is what Adobe publishes to through Lightroom. I've heard it's really good.

Above all, it's hard learning to live with vivid mental images of scenes I cared for and failed to photograph. It is the edgy existence within me of these unmade images that is the only assurance that the best photographs are yet to be made.

So many Choices!! New blog about the mental gymnastics with producing a book. Check out my new blog posting. I begin the struggle over how I decide what format to use in my Blurb book. There is a poll you can take to help me decide. To help you decide to read my blog I have included some info that could potentially save you some $$.
