Tips For Digitizing Personal Library?

Good Questions

Q: I have a massive amount of books and I'm sick of toting them around with every move, and I don't think they make a great decor element, especially in a small space. I desperately want to get rid of my physical books - but not their content (including notes I've scribbled in the margins); I'd like to have my personal library fully digitized.

I've started researching companies that will scan your books into digital files, but right now that's looking very expensive. Do any Apartment Therapy readers have experience with digitizing their own libraries or tips to share? Thanks!
