How About AutoRip for Books?

Paul Kafasis:

Still, AutoRip is painfully close to something I’ve found myself pining for since starting to use a Kindle e-reader: free Kindle copies of purchased physical books. Unlike CDs, there’s no way for book purchasers to create their own digital copy, so an “AutoRip for Books” would provide much more benefit.

That’s my holy grail of book-buying. I still buy many of my books — particularly ones I really care about — in print, because I remain as uncomfortable today as I did in 2007 about “buying” books with DRM.
