How to Upload Print Books to Evernote

Ever wish you could read digital copies of print books from your personal library or reading list? 1DollarScan has launched a new service, scanning books and uploading the file to your Evernote account.

Here’s how it works: “Consumers simply mail their printed content to be scanned and digitized into PDF files by 1DollarScan. After the PDF file(s) is delivered, order details (e.g., book thumbnail image, book title and number books, amount paid, confirmation number, request and scan dates, etc.) and a download link of the PDF file(s) is automatically uploaded to an Evernote user’s account as a new 1DollarScan ‘Notebook.’”

Over at AppNewser, you can explore an infographic about the explosive growth of cloud storage. The company will cut the spine so they can scan and digitize the text, so you will lose your copy of the book. Pricing is relatively simple, you pay $1 per 100 pages.
