I have about 10-12 Blurb books on my shelf, 2 of my own and the rest  
by other people. In all cases I have been very pleased with the  
quality of the book, and it seems to be getting better and better--the  
most recent book, Ted's, was absolutely superb and the best ever that  
I have seen.

Perhaps it is a matter of the printer used, as Wade says, and we are  
just lucky here in Europe.
