I ordered the same book with BLURB and Mypublisher; i prefer the cover of Myplubisher but with the premium paper of BLURB i would say that the quality difference wasn't really worth the higher price of Mypublisher.
And the free offer Don mentioned is a bit confusing, the advertisement looks like:
New Customer?
Get a FREE PhotoBook with your first order.
This means ordering your first book you get two, but after that prices are significant higher. Apart from shipping costs (MYPUBLISHER to Europe  is nearly 8 USDollar more compared to Blurb) Mypublisher is 50 percent more expensive.
I included (tri)color, brom(oil) and inkjet prints to have a real idea how it looks like and was happy with the result, see:

I am still looking for other ways to print B/W without this colorshifts. 

That's why I mentioned MyPublisher. Probably more expensive than Blurb but
they have a free offer until May 11th. 

Based on the Blurb books and the MyPublisher books I've viewed, MyPublisher
wins on quality, for color and B&W work.
