Re: Booksorber coming soon: Scan with 1 camera and simple se

Has anyone bought Booksorber and used it enough to tell us whether it is worth buying?

Re: buy book scanner

Hello Zeretto, Hi Mark, I have contact you many times, but you have not answered. I have triple checked email and spam, and found eleven answered questions from an Italian individual (probably you), and three recent ones that ended up in spam. We didn't answer those. I'm sorry about that. Please do ...

Re: Should I buy/build my own book scanner?

I am currently an undergrad ECE. I go through a lot of books at school and would love to have digital copies and I know many others would like to have the same for their books. This seems like a great hobby and I would love to get involved. I was hoping I could get some cost estimates on scanners. ...
