Editing a book after purchasing
Book Design and Imaging

I think there is a reminder at the time of upload, to check spelling. My mistake was not a spelling error but the wrong title for an image when I changed the cover image. Of course, there is no program that can catch that mistake :)  A proofreader wouldn’t necessarily catch it either.

Editing a book after purchasing
Book Design and Imaging

I found a small mistake I had made in my book too. I certainly don’t mind having to buy one more book when I correct and upload my new revision, but it would be great if there was a "replace" feature instead of a full delete and re-upload. 

I’ve announced my book to friends and created blurb badges which connect to the book from facebook, flickr, as well as a link from my website, so it’s kind of a bummer to have to get rid of all the links to that book, and create new ones because the revised book is like a brand new listing.

I’d love to see a "replace" feature, and glad to hear blurb is listening. Thanks Kathy!

Adding Books to a Favorite list???
Web Features

Super idea! I think blurb and its bookmakers could really benefit from an "add to favourites" application. I’m sure sites such as etsy have increased their sales by allowing customers to save their top picks in one place, and then when they decide to buy,  they might  buy more than one of their picks.

 I’ve bookmarked some blurb books, but often forget about them there.
