Some of my readers have asked about printed copies of my App Inventor e-books.
There are services available that can print high quality, full color (with more detailed images) “on demand” which means a copy of the book is printed and manufactured at the time of purchase.
Printing adds cost. Depending on the size (height and width) and length of the printed book, prices might fall in the range of US$10 to $20.
Are you interested in printed books or are e-books okay with you? Here’s a quick poll on the subject – this poll also appears in the lower right side bar of this web page.
Thank you for your help!

@AppInventorPlus I don’t buy one or the other consistently, even when both options are available.
@AppInventorPlus I seem to like both the thought of a thousand books in my pocket and of holding the bound pages in my hand equally well.
When we last moved, we decided e-books are much easier to move than boxes and boxes of printed books 🙂 But there are times where paper has merit too. Good quality images and photos remain hard to do in e-books, for example, and standards on imaging (color space, dots per inch) are all over the map, and some ebook software does a “one size fits all” to the lowest resolution devices. Obviously, ebook technology will continue to improve but it may be a while yet before all the issues are resolved… Ed
