    I was wondering about the book just this weekend. I think it would be a shame if it never got to see light of day.

    I would also gladly purchase a digital format. Maybe taking pre-orders would help grease the wheels a bit? I would be up for that also if it were the case.

    May I please add my personal opinion, Steve?

    I'm 66 and have still yet to retire (with three sons still at home). So "good on 'ya, matey!"

    I too would like to encourage you to release your book in .PDF format. In fact, if you do, can you please put me on your list as a potential customer? I'd even be willing to mail you an empty thumb drive to copy it to, if you wish it.

    All the best with your wood crafting biz. Cheers, Alan

I also agree that digital format ( such as on a flash drive/ thumb drive) would likely be the easiest format, both for you, and most customers. Don’t give up on the idea just yet.

    I'd rather be able to buy a printed copy, but a PDF would also work.

    There are places around that will do small runs of books. Heck, even my local bookstore has a machine to do it, and I think their minimum is somewhere around a quantity of 1. Prints, binds, and trims, and they sell copies of locally-written books at the front of the store. It's really a pretty neat operation and they keep the machine proudly on display in the store.

    Or you could print them at something like FedEx Office where they'll spiral bind. I've had that done before, and it's not terribly expensive.

    Going to print doesn't have to be a huge obstacle anymore.
