lulu.com book experiment
I spent Sept. 7 poking around on lulu.com -- an online, print-on-demand, self-publishing service. As an experiment, I took the four essays in the recent "Blueprint for Revolution" series and formatted them into a book. Poof! On the very same day I began exploring, I was ordering a copy of my very own 69-page softcover masterpiece.
Today, Sept. 26 -- two weeks and five days later -- that book arrived in the mail!
I won't be selling this book; I did no editing, so it retains all the disorganization and errors in the original material. Still, it does what I intended it to do: give me the feeling that I really CAN produce a book. That's worth $7.85 -- shipping included!
