The reward for running 5 minutes early in the morning is sitting on a stationary train for five extra minutes, waiting for it to depart. #transitLyfe
So what I'm getting from watching multiple Kickstarters involving printing books... you should budget to scrap you entire first print run. You're going to make a mistake, or your printer is going to make a mistake they won't consider worthy of a reprinting, and you're going to have a load of books you aren't willing to ship to backers. I've seen this sink a project, or end with the creator losing money.

I'm not well versed in the style so I tried my best ^^;
We have this weird phenomenon at work. We have a ton of ceramic coffee cups with the company logo. The fancy coffee machine is in the basement kitchen. The largest number of seats are on the 3rd floor. Over time, all the coffee cups migrate to the 3rd floor kitchen shelf. Occasionally I box a bunch up and take them back to the basement. But I don't drink coffee.

A little something @vampyric did for me...
This is why I've stopped backing video game Kickstarters and "early access" on Steam... "Estimated delivery: Jan 2016." It's now Jul 2019 and I'm still getting updates that, while what they've made is impressive, it's clear they've probably got more than a year left to go. I don't want a game released before it's ready, but this watching updates for years has been grueling. And the last, though good, didn't live up to expectations created through years of weekly developer updates.
I dislike this "quick survey" trend of "How likely are you to recommend?" then "Please tell us the reason for your score." I mean, just because I feel an 8 for your business doesn't mean I want to dig into and articulate *why* I feel that way. That's just lazy survey design and is asking too much of customers who see survey requests practically every day.
