Another idea is to hire an idler to saw the binding off of the books, then
scan the pages into PDFs, then you email your library to Texas.  I don't
want to cut up my books either, but it carries the advantage that you can
enlarge the text to any arbitrary size, or you can have the computer read
them to you, and most importantly, you can text search the books.  I buy far
fewer paper books than I once did, but now it really bothers me that they
have no search feature.
