Taking digital notes from physical books

It’s 2020, and I still prefer physical books. Kindle is good and everything, but the feeling of holding a physical book still gets me.

For my notes, it’s the inverse. I like digital notes. This way, I can easily search for ideas and get results from multiple books at once. The challenge is to get my notes from the physical books to a digital app.

I wanted to share with you the quickest, easiest, and free solution for this. I use it myself. All you need is:

Whenever you find something worth noting. Open the Google Lens app and try to take a picture of the page. The app will automatically scan the text and gives you the possibility to select it. Now all you need is to select the text and copy-paste it to your app.

Voilà. You have your digital notes now.
