Hello everyone!

Archive Scans has been up for over ELEVEN years now! That's awesome!

I have to apologize for letting the page stagnate. It's been harder and harder for me to find the time or energy to keep updating the site over the past few years. It's been more difficult for me to find good sources for already-scanned books online and being able to force myself to do scans myself...

Just to be clear, I have no intention of shuttering the page. I just don't know what to do to keep it moving forward. Right now the page seems to be [relatively] safe and I can keep the server for content up indefinitely as it is now so. Burnout is real, even if it takes a long time to kick in.

If you can add more in the future that is awesome, but dont push yourself too hard for our sake.

I've been coming to your blog for about 7 years now. Thank you for sharing your passion with us. Update when you can or feel like it. Most of us know what it's like to experience that burnout.
