Wil Wheaton praised it as a way for indie authors to get their work out without having to take up precious shelf space at the book store that the next Twilight book should be occupying.

What say you, fellow readers? I think it's a great idea.

Could one bring an electronic copy of a book and feed it into the machine to crank out a few copies?

I'm thinking that it would have to be a book already loaded into the machine for copyright reasons.

Right but couldn't that be another application, self publishing?
