Yeah, she does. I was just asking for my own curiosity.

I looked through some of the sites/info and from what I gather POD is basically a way to get a dozen copies of your book so you can give a copy to your relatives without having to pay for an entire vanity run. Is that anybody else's impression? Does anybody actually sell or buy PODded books other than the author?

I think if I ever got to the point where I wanted something printed/published that I would be more inclined to buy a fancy printer that collates pages and stuff and get a page-hole punch and spiral bindings and make it myself.
