    How did you scan your books? I'm thinking about doing this.
    I started three weeks ago, and I love having my notes on my computer, definitely agreed there.

    Have you considered digital textbooks? I think they are invaluable for tablets.

    Use a digital camera to photograph the pages and then install a virtual PDF printer. You can then use Windows document and image viewer to "print" all the pages into one PDF file. Then discard the camera files. This is exponentially faster than scanning.

    p.s. If you then import the PDF to OneNote it will OCR the whole thing and you'll be able to search the text as well.

    The camera method is faster, but I wouldn't be able to accept the results from it. Sure, I could spend time editing each picture to make it just as good as the scanned images, but it'd take a lot longer than using a scanner in the first place. If the quality isn't an issue for you, then you definitely have a great option at your disposal....I'm just too picky about how my books turn out.
