lulu.com is a great service. They offer personal publishing. Just like MovableType offers online personal publishing, they actually publish the book!
Some interesting features I like:
With 99 USD, they can assign a ISBN to your new book! This is valid ISBN that you can even sell your book in Amazon.com or bookstores. They (lulu.com) act as the publishing house for you.
With 149 USD, they even can list you as the publisher, that you own the ISBN…
Free PDF Creator
They can convert the Word document into PDF that allows your users to download (free or at a fee).
Binding and Shipping, and Print (just in time)
They cover almost everything about publishing. That makes printing a book as easy as creating a Word document or write a blog.
I am Going to Try It
How about I publish some books? Something like this:
Wangjianshuo’s Blog (2002 – 2006)
Living in Shanghai – From the Eyes of a Blogger
I can put the related topic (categories in this blog) into a book.
Then I can print the book. Anyone interested to get one?
