How could I convert a physical book into an ebook?

I have some books that I would like to make into ebooks so that i can carry them around and read them more conveniently. I would prefer not to use a scanner, partly because mine is not very good and also because a few of my books are somewhat fragile and I do not want to damage the spines on them. I do have a very nice digital SLR camera if there is something I could do with that.
thanks for the help

Hi, I’ll recommend a smart book scanner from
CZUR. As you do not want to damage the spines on them, CZUR will not damage any document because theey don't have any contact. I guess it's a good option for you.

I’m a student and I also have many
textbooks, notes, reports to scan and save. CZUR is an affordable choice for me
and matches your situation. The scanning process is simple. Just place a book
under the camera, and the software will help to convert them into ebooks, even
in different formats, like PDF, or Word.

Btw, it's fast to scan books with it. So it's also proper to scan book in bulk.

Hope it’s helpful for you.

Many recent scanners include such functionality built-in as part of their software. This is one that has great reviews for doing exactly that. The software will let you scan page after page and then automatically pull it all together as an ebook.  Good luck!

The simplest thing would be to photograph the pages and save the images together as a PDF.
