I have several notebooks with writing them I'd like to scan. The books have soft covers, but the pages can't be taken out. Is there any easy way to scan them without manually flipping through all the pages? I do have access to a scanner with a paper feeder. The notes are important and I've been working on storing important documents in google drive.

  • Is the book available in an electronic format? No scanning required! Jul 23, 2015 at 20:09
  • @AdamZuckerman no I wrote in the book

  • If the book were available in an electronic format, it should be easy to convert it (if required) to a version that allows for note taking. That way you only need to add your notes. You should still be able to store the file on Google Drive. Jul 23, 2015 at 20:32

Get your smart phone, and pictures of each page your gonna upload. In the mean time, start getting to work on that book scanner.

    No way to lighten up; did you really need to edit "x-ray book scanner" ?
