Got a Book in You? More Companies Than Ever Are Willing to Get It Out

Since September, the nation's second-largest bookseller, Borders Group, has quietly been conducting an experiment in six Philadelphia-area stores, not as a bookseller, but as a publisher. "It's easy to publish your own book!" the "Borders Personal Publishing" leaflets proclaim. Pay $4.99. Take home a kit. Send in your manuscript and $199. A month or so later, presto. Ten paperback copies of your novel, memoir or cookbook arrive. Fork over $499, and you can get the upscale "Professional Publication" option. Your book gets an ISBN (International Standard Book Number), the publishing's equivalent of an ID number and it is made available on Borders.com.
