Mother's Day is coming up fast and Apple is making preparations to make sure you get your gifts on time.
If you want to give your Mother one of the personalized books created in iPhoto, you probably should get started. According to Apple the cut off date to have a book delivered in time for Mother's Day using standard shipping is April 27, 2009. If you use Express shipping, you get an extra couple of days with the deadline falling on April 30, 2009.
iPhoto gives you the option to build a hardcover, softcover and wire bound book directly from the application. Apple even includes 13 themes, with drop zones for your pictures, so it's pretty easy to create a book. Once your book is created, you can send in your order from within iPhoto.
There are a variety of prices for the books depending on your options. As an example a 20-page wire bound book with 11 x 8.5 pages costs $19.99.
