Have anyone yet ordered, and recieved a book using Aperture?

I have tried to order a book twice, the transfer of the book to printershop/Apple is going ok and finishes within minutes. However, I have never recieved confirmation on my order. Furthermore, when trying to quit Aperture, a dialog box tells me I can not quit untill confirmation has been recieved. Having waited for hours, nothing has changed. Is this a confirmed bug?

If any of you have recieved a book ordered in Aperture, how is it? How does the quality compare with that of iPhoto?

I have previously ordered books in iPhoto, and the picture/print quality is ok, but far from impressive, seems like a mediocre laser printer to me. I was hoping that Aperture would provide higher quality book prints.

Ok, I quit Aperture and ordered a second time. After a long, long time, I finally was informed that the order was confirmed in a dialog box, and then recieved an email providing yet another confirmation.

So, how is the quality of Aperture books?

I haven't ordered one yet, but plan to. I just got my copy of Apeture last night and have not had a chance to play with it. Loaded it, opened and looked at a few samples.

Let us know what you think once you get your order.

Just got my first book from Apple using Aperture. I agree that the quality it ok, I was hoping for more. When I first opened the box (I can see why it costs 8 bucks to ship it, it's all in packaging) I was shocked to see the cover photo was nothing more than a sticker that was half peeled off. Definitly not worth 40 bucks IMO. I never ordered iphoto books, but I was really hoping it would be much nicer.
