160 page Blurb PDF Export, 17 hours and still no PDF, what is wrong?
PDF to Book

I had a very similar problem. My book is 120 pages and the entire book file ended up being huge (over 500MB). I tried uploading it for hours and hours multiple times. It never would go through successfully.

I resolved this issue by going to Acrobat and doing an "Optimize" using the advanced settings. This reduced the file to less than 50MB. It uploaded and printed fine.

Suggestion: update book facility
Web Features

Absolutely! The lack of this updating feature (and the need to delete the old version and then purchase the new version) is incredibly irritating. I’ve already purchased 30 copies. I’ve made a few minor updates to my book and it would be very very helpful if Blurb would allow me to replace the version posted online with the updated version.

Now, when I upload my updated version, all the links out there on the web are broken. That SUCKS! Please work on this and change it!
