Digitize a paper book in 15 minutes!
For those who would like to convert their paper books to digital for personal use, I have found a quick and easy way to do this, though it does require you to use a sharp xacto knife to cut off the spine of the book. It takes a few minutes to cut through all the pages of a 300-page book (the cut needs to be clean, so use a sharp knife!). I then use the Fujitsu Scansnap scanner, which is a terrific device for duplex high-speed scannning. It can run through a 300-page book in a few minutes (feeding in 50 sheets at a time), and once scanned the Fujitsu software automatically indexes and formats the results into a PDF file. Voila, an instant ebook!
