Japanese-style Print-to-E-book Scanning Catching on in the US

Posted at 8:30AM Tuesday 24 Jul 2012

The idea behind 1dollarscan.com is simple: why not take all those old paper books or documents that are cluttering up your home, and send them to the firm's offices in San Jose, where they'll be scanned and turned into searchable PDF files? Rates start at $1 for 1-100 pages, which means that replacing a 200-page novel with a PDF file will cost a grand total of two bucks. It's a lot cheaper than buying a replacement on Amazon, that's for sure — and that's if the book you are replacing is even available as an electronic file.
