That's what I was doing yesterday. My son was over so I was sitting with him in his room which has all the diary / genealogy stuff in it. I scanned in 300 pages worth of letters from my great-grandmother. Now I just need to "merge together" the pages that go with each letter set, so they form distinct units, and then I can send all the PDFs off to family members. I also put them all into sheet protectors in a 3 ring binder, so they can store more nicely.
Today I packaged up a bunch of books that had to get mailed, as well as a set of manga I sold on ebay. So that was a good amount to clear out of the house. So a win-win. Tonight I hope to pack up another 20 books and get those ready to mail. These are all marketing copies of my own books going to readers. So I've just had these stacks of my books in my office waiting to go out, taking up space.
Also I have a big stack of Penguin review books here. I'll sort through them, make a list, and send that to the editors. So that way my office gets cleaner and editors get free fun books to read.
