I never thought about this before I made and printed a photo book. My colors in the book were so off (super saturated) from what I saw on my screen. I was glad I used a coupon and only printed one book.
After that, I got some software to calibrate my monitor. This helped immensely! Every few months, I attach the calibrator to my screen (plugs into the mouse port) and go through the steps. It is also amazing to see the huge difference between my laptop screen and my desktop -- it would never have ocurred to me if I hadn't printed some pages.
ETA -- so now I calibrate both screens at the same time. there were times I thought I was losing my mind. a paper would look cream on one screen, and then I would be viewing my uploaded pages on the other and it would look almost green!~
