Default How do you want your book?

For those interested, I'm trying to figure out the best way for you all get get your books. For those of you that would like an actual printed book, I will be self-publishing by Blurb.

Pricing from Blurb: http://www.blurb.com/create/book/pricin ... d-portrait
I will be using the Standard Portrait sized book, for the 41-80 page range, in full color.
Costs with regular paper are $24.95USD, if you want premium paper, add $3.00.

I am not sure if you get to choose what paper you want if you buy straight from their site, so if you want a copy please vote with which you would prefer.

Since printing is so expensive, I would also like to make buying an electronic copy an option. Whether this will be an eBook, simply hosting the PDF somewhere, emailing it to you, I dunno. If I am going to charge a small fee for it I don't want people to just be sending it to everyone else, so I'm not sure. (the small fee would be to help cover the costs of some of the professional pictures I had taken, any additional proceeds would be sent to one or more hedgehog rescues of my choice.)

So please, let me know what you would prefer! I am hoping to have the book finished and have ordered a few copies for my vet and I by mid September, hopefully sooner.

*NOTE* I have decided that I would like to use the full 80 pages for the price they charge. Once I figure out how many are in use, I will be accepting pictures from whoever would like to have their hedgehog in the back of the book. There will be limited space and I will be taking pictures on a first come, first serve basis until the pages are filled. I will need a first and last name or initial to use your photos.
