    I put together a really nice book (74 pages) from my recent trip to Walt Disney World with my wife. I decided I would go ahead and send it off last night so I hit the "buy book" button and it came up with the box to enter my information. After entering the information and clicking on Buy Now it took about 1 1/2 hours for it to put my book together. After what seemed like forever it was done and came up with a send book box so I clicked on it to upload it and I received a message that my information wasn't right to re-enter it or use another credit card or some message like that. I had already verified my id, password, credit card, shipping address. The credit card had plenty of credit left on it to buy the book. So I tried it again after reverifying my information....again. I got the same message again. So I tried it again using a different credit card and got the same message. So I went to the internet and I'm finding a TON of people having the same problem. I'm wondering if anyone has ever had any luck with getting a photo book done with Aperture. I have used Blurb books in the past but I decided to try out Apple's printing press this time. I really like how Aperture works. Very impressed with the ease and layouts that are possible. One other BIG compliant is that every time you try and buy a book it has to build it ever single time taking up 1 1/2 hours. Why can't it just save it and let me just buy a book and upload something it has already built. That is a real pain with Aperture if it wouldn't let you just take a pdf that it already built and just send it off.
    For the record I'm a professional photographer and I build wedding albums all the time and NEVER run into problems like this.

    I had one done a few weeks ago and had no problem getting it to go through.

    I've ordered a couple of Aperture books, but none recently. I had no problems getting either of them to transmit and the books that I got were beautiful and totally worth the money (which isn't much for what you get).

    Ordered one last week, and it arrives tomorrow. I've bought them in the past and had zero issues.
