There is an Opticbook 3600 used (not mine) on eBay for $149, I think. Not sure on shipping, but bidding starts at $75 if you want to go through bidding... I recommend a sniping program if you do to not drive up the price. Got mine that way for less. If you can swing about $250, though, the 3800 is worth every penny. Grins.

I’m really new at this, haven’t even proofread or scanned my first book!! My question is, what is a good scanner to buy that works with O The trouble with children is that they're not returnable.penbook? I was one of the excited ones buying a Pearl and I’m pretty sure it would take a lot of correction if I used that one. Please let me know, thanks.
