People scan their own books for many reasons. One of the important reasons is to archive book collections and preserve valuable knowledge. If you have tremendously important books, rare collections, out-of-print books or personal journals you would like to preserve, you can create your own eBook cabinet to archive everything. This helps to save storage space and there will be no more clutter on your bookshelf.
When you often have textbooks or reference books needed to be carried around with you, scan these books to make readable on your laptop or mobile device. Once you have the on-line cabinet, you can instantly find the desired information to save time for your research, study and work. You are able to search certain information within searchable files instead of having to read through every page. It is a lot easier for you to look for something in particular.
There is other advantage to digitize your books. If you like to listen while driving, or perhaps you have difficulty reading printed pages with eyes, scan and convert your books to audio books and let the book reader read books to you. Scanning books and creating eBooks helps people to listen instead of read. People whose physical impairments prevent them from handling books can benefit from having books scanned into their laptop or mobile devices.
