It was my blog! I had a client coming, but I couldn't help myself, I had to rip into my box and see how my book turned out.
As you can see, it has my bloggy dinner pic on the front, and on the back is a lighthouse picture we took on our vacation. You get to choose what pictures go there and the cover color. I am thrilled with the look of the book and impressed by it's sturdiness (especially for being cheap and ordering the soft cover!).
The pages are nice and thick and overall I am loving the way they turned out. I sat flipping through it yesterday and caught myself reading things I had forgot I even had written. The comments, however, did not print. I am not sure if there was an option for comments and in my hasty order I shut them off, or if the removal of comments was part of the reason why this book had dropped in price, but either way I am okay with it this time.
A couple things to note- the pics I swiped off the web (especially Google images) did not print very well. They look a little 'pixle-y' and grainy. My personal uploaded photos look fabulous. Another little surprise was at the bottom of each comment was a one line blurb saying "this site provided by MYFITNESSPAL.COM" which is weird because this summer I logged all my calories and exercise On that site. I don't know why it is there, but it is. Just consider yourself warned. Once again, I got this from Sharedbook.com if anyone else is considering it.
Overall the book was about $35.00, and that included shipping, so to have it here, printed up, the past year of my life, and not ever have to worry about all my things online disappearing, is a very good feeling. I feel the weight of neglecting my journal the past years suddenly lifting..... ahhhhh...much better now.
QUICKLY on another note I must say this....Courtney Cox's teeth in "Bedtime Stories" made me crazy! Did she glue Chiklets on the front of her mouth? Did she insert all the fat from her hips into her lips? And why, oh why, didn't she take speech therapy before her shoots so she could talk without a lisp? I don't know what is going on with this past Friend, but her performance in this movie was completely overshadowed by her mouth makeover. She should have left it alone!
