    Blurb: Your Thoughts?

    I've used Blurb once, with good results. As others have said, look for discounts from Blurb, if you can wait.

    Website Closure is cancelled! We're staying open!

    Yes, this forum is a major selling point (for me) in sticking, for now, with LR. Yes, this forum is _much_ easier to use. Yes, the sense of community and camaraderie is greater here than on other LR-specific forums. Yes, although I wouldn't use "intimate"; informed without bias is more what...
