April, I wasn't sure where to leave this comment, but to answer your questions about blurb...I love my blurb book. the quality is great adn the price is terrific. I haven't tried a hard cover, I have only gotten the soft covers but have been very happy with them. This is my 4th one. they are glued. I love that you can just dump your blog into blurb and don't have to sit there and upload your pictures. It is a bit difficult to figure out, but if you send me your email, I will send you some tips and also a picture of the inside of my book.

Hope that helps!

Sara
