Innovative Service Allows Anyone to Create a Beautiful Book

(PRWEB) October 12, 2012

When Shannon Martins discovered a box of her grandmothers secret recipes carefully stowed away in a closet, she knew she had to share them immediately with all of her cousins. She just wasnt quite sure how to go about it.

There were close to two hundred recipes on small 3 x 5 notecards, said Shannon. I knew it would take forever to scan them all, and I wasnt sure what to do with them after I did. Typing them in made more sense, but I wanted to create a keepsake that we could all treasure. Something that would remind us of my grandmother.

Instead of simply typing the recipes into an impersonal document and passing it around, Shannon used Bookemon.com, an amazing startup offering unique technology, to create a beautiful hardbound book of filled with her childhood favorites like Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits and Hearty Bean Soup.

The results were nothing short of amazing. Shannon was able to order a copy for each of her ten cousins, giving everyone a chance to share Grandmas cooking love with their own families.

I was surprised at how easy the process was. There were a ton of templates to choose from, and all I had to do was enter the recipes. I even included a few pictures of Grandma with each of us and threw in a couple of quotes that she always told us when we were in the kitchen with her, said Shannon.

So Many Books, So Little Time

Services to create your own book have been around for some time, but this startup company is quite different. Bookemon was designed specifically for situations like Martins. A wholly unique company, they are now offering much more than a chance to make cookbooks from treasured family recipes. From building childrens books to creating a biography, the technology behind this amazing startup makes it easy to design treasured classics. Theres even a collaboration feature in the event youd like to design a book with friends or relatives.

The process is a simple one. Start with a document, a blank template, or one of their hundreds of preloaded templates. Begin adding pictures, text, poems, or other ideas to the page, and arrange each element for maximum effectiveness. Once the process is complete, order a copy for yourself, or email friends and relatives to let them know the book is ready so they, too, can order a copy.

Theres a Creative Genius Inside Waiting

Bookemon means the chance to unleash your inner sense of creativity in a way never thought possible. With a new iPad app and even cloud services to help with collaboration at every level, this is one chance you dont want to miss.

My cousins were so excited to see the recipes, the pictures, and the book itself, said Shannon. It really was the best way to remember her.

Weather is Becoming Beautiful in the U.K., the Time is Right to Explore Touring, Traveling, or Moving to London


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2012

RoadFish.com mens lifestyle and finance magazine explores the perks to travel or even move to the beautiful, elegant, and culturally rich United Kingdom. Many of RoadFish.coms colleagues, friends, and even family members reside in Great Britain, and the mens lifestyle and finance magazine today discussed ways for locals and tourists to travel, live or even move within Englands stunning capital city.

RoadFish.coms Senior staff writer is quoted as saying, As a company, we work with and have so many relationships with British-born natives. Interacting with them every day and learning the local takes on England makes it hard not to look at this awesome nation and not dream of traveling or living there someday. There is so much that London has to offer.

Among the many perks on RoadFishs move to London list, Englands capital city happens to be next to New York City and Tokyo as being one of the worlds leading financial centers, putting it in incredibly good economical position. London is also the worlds 5th largest metropolitan vicinity, and is home to countless museums, galleries and cultural institutions. For folks who are considering moving to or within London, the local estate agents can provide incredibly valuable assistance.

RoadFish.com points out the obvious benefit of visiting or moving to a fellow English-speaking nation. RoadFish.coms Senior staff writer stated, When Ive traveled internationally in the past, its always been to non-English speaking countries. Ive felt vulnerable at times, and the language barrier certainly posed a challenge. I wonder how much I missed out on by not being able to speak the local language. Visiting or moving to England, language is a non-issue.

There are certainly countless other reasons to visit or tour London. In their article in the Daily News and Analytics, co-writers Ismat Tahseen and Maheka Mirpuri quote the age old saying, When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford. The top ten reasons to visit London, according to this DNA article, are music, Madame Tussauds, Buckingham Palace, the citys history and architecture, Wimbledon, The Thames, theater, eating out, the nightlife, and the shopping opportunities. It is a city in which culture, business, entertainment, and history.

Lauren Barack of USA Today offers some tips if you are planning on visiting London within the next couple of months. For a March activity in Englands capital city, Barack suggests the Ideal Home Exhibition at the Earls Court Exhibition Center. This year, the Ideal Home Show runs from March 16th through April 1st and features more than 600 exhibitors on topics such as home interiors, home improvements, ideal gardens, food and house wares, gadgets, and even home shows. The Ideal Home Show has been running annually for over 100 years, making for a traditional English activity. If visiting in April, Barack reports that the London Marathon takes place in the middle of the month. The marathon route takes participants along a historical route including such historical spots as Greenwich Park, Westminster Bridge, Isle of Dogs, Victoria Embankment, and St. James Park. If on holiday during the week of Easter, Barack recommends the Battersea Park Easter Day Parade and its colorful floats and marching bands, and the Easter Monday horse-drawn carriage procession.

RoadFish.coms Senior staff writer references the quote typically credited to Ghandi, the world is a book, and those who have not traveled have only read one page.

This summer, London will host the Summer Olympic Games for the third time (the first two were in 1908 and 1948), making it the first city in the world to have held three summer Olympics.
