Your feedback is always valuable to us and thanks to it, we understood that for our users, creating a blook project is a long-term project. The creation of a book is quick in itself, but the most important is its personalization: You want your blook to be unique, and we can only agree with that!

This personal touch, you want to be able to bring it at your own pace, without feeling rushed.

Thus, in order to avoid the loss of books carefully layouted by our users, our archiving system has been revised!

Non-Ordered Blooks

  • Will be deleted only the blooks that reached the 3 months (90 days) limit without being edited
  • Any modification (new cover, change of title, modified article, etc) will restart the 3 months period from the date of the modification
  • The date of last modification is displayed in the blook’s informations, alongside the creation date.

Ordered Blooks

  • Blooks ordered at least once are always kept for 3 years and are definitively deleted after this period if they have not been ordered again
  • Any new order of a blook will restart the 3 years period from the date of the last order
  • The date of the last order is displayed in the blook’s informations, alongside the creation date

___________________________________

We will continue to send an automatic mail 7 days before the suppression of the blooks in order to warn you of the remaining time and ask you to modify your book if you wish to keep it longer!

So if you have a blook project waiting on BlookUp, the time to save it is now!

You book printed on demand with your lunch

A new restaurant has opened in Paris: ZA.

It’s actually a “literary cafeteria” where anyone can come, order food . As well as order a book that’s printed on demand!

An original concept that spoke to our hearts here at BlookUp, we know about printing book on demand from one copy!

Here, you can order a book that exists already (and not customize your own book like we offer) from a catalogue that is about 2000 titles.

Your meal is being prepared at the same time as the book you’ve chosen is printed, and you can then feed your body and your mind in one single place!

Printing a 400 pages book takes 7 minutes, so you can enjoy your break.

Designed by Philippe Starck, and with 328 seats and its terrace, ZA is ZE place to be for all book lovers! Bonus!  You can even download the application on your smartphone to see the menu and pay online thanks to the WIFI service.

We love the concept! What do you think about this “literary cafeteria”?
