This is where I record the scanning projects I'm working on. Unfortunately it's a bit tough finding the time to keep up with it; please excuse any errors. I'm in the process of moving out most of the books from the Waiting to be Scanned tables. If you see some you want, speak now and I'll mail them to you!

Books Waiting to be Scanned

Updated by Estreya 16:32, 6 June 2009 (PDT)

I no longer house the DP Scanner so this section has been deleted.

Books Scanned for Other PMs

I'll try to track where these books are in DP and when they're posted to PG. They'll appear in the Hall of Fame section at that time.
