Has anyone tried this yet? I have a lot of paper books that are not available in ebook form, and probably never will be. I have been waiting for the Ion Booksaver because I thought that might be an option for me to digitize my books, but it hasn't been released. I'm tired of storing and moving this huge collection of books, so I may send some in to 1DollarScan to be converted. I need good OCRed copies though because PDFs generally suck on my Kindle.
Please share any feedback about this service.
ETA: I looked at the site again. I had previously noticed that they OCR, but now I see that they only send PDFs. If the PDFs are OCRed, does that mean they are text PDFs that would be easier to convert to Mobi or EPUB? I thought when people use OCR software they get a text file, not a PDF.
