Here’s what happens if you’re me and you wish you could digitize the essentials of your personal library and take it with you for your year in Paris: you mope around saying things like, “Man, wish I could digitize my library and take it with me. Oh well.”

Here’s what happens if you’re an engineer and you think something similar: you build a super-fast, easy-to-use, do-it-yourself book scanner.

Check out what my web designer Justin Ray worked up here. And if you’re a little more motivated than I am, you’ll channel your inner engineer and have a rocking tool to digitize your library. Justin’s post has more details, but here are his Youtube video demos to tantalize you:

P.S. Justin also does the web design for my site and designed a super-cool (and free) Joomla plugin that you can use to integrate Goodreads reviews directly (and automatically) into your own site. Read more at www.314pies.com.
