Blog 2 Book Expt. 4: Google’s Blog 2 Print (Beta)

For users of Google’s Blogger service, Google Blog 2 Print is drop Dead Simple to use.  Unfortunately, the resulting book is very expensive, starting at $29.95 for a 20-page hard cover book.

I found Google Blog 2 Print by searching “blog to print book” in a Google search window.  Of course, the Google service came up first.  So I clicked on it.  After doing this, the service presented me with a choice:  move straight ahead to purchase a book or take the web service for a test drive.  I decided to take a test drive so I entered in the address of one of my Blogger blogs — you know the one.  I also uploaded a cover image to use and entered that I wanted all of entries to be used (the tool also has a way to input a date range) and then pushed “next.”  Within 2 or 3-mins the web service presented me with a preview of my book and asked if I wanted to personalize it.  I did and then it was at this point that the program prompted me to register as a user.  Once I registered, I was taken to a nother easy to use tool that allowed me to either choose a pre-rendered cover or to upload my own.  I chose a suitable pre-rendered cover and moved on to do a full preview of the finished booked.  Satisfied with my creation, I purchased 1 softcover book.  The whole process took me less than 10-mins.  It should arrive here on November 27th.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.  The cost was pretty steep, though, at $29.95 for a 40-page soft bound book.

Oh, it looks like you can’t sell your book to the public through this service.  It’s purely a vanity service.
