My favorite part of summer is reliving it afterwards, swapping stories about roller coaster rides with a loose seat belt, humbling (OK, humiliating) attempts to learn surfing in a too-small bathing suit, campouts where finicky raccoons ate everything but the pink mini-marshmallows and generic-brand ketchup. Apparently a lot of you Blurbarians out there can relate, because you’re capturing summer memories while they’re still fresh in cookout cookbooks, road trip photo documentaries, and wedding memory books. There’s a whole lot of real and vicarious vacationing going on at Blurb Central, let me tell you. I’m sure the Blurb books will follow.
So what brings you to Blurb today? Are you turning your dad’s barbecue recipes into a cookbook for his birthday? Do you have underwater photos from your scuba certification class that you’re turning into a yearbook for your fellow divers? Have you been getting a little misty making a book of memories from your best friend’s wedding – and are you including all those incriminating photos of post-champagne-toast dance moves? Let us know and we’ll post all contributions through the comments thread. If you want to share, but don’t want to do it publicly, please send us an email at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. If we can’t get enough of your comment or email, we might ask you to tell us more. We want to hear what your Blurb book is about, how you made it, and what you got out of making it.
It’s show and tell time, and the floor’s all yours.
