Scholar task suggestion: transcribe books

Post by nobody » Mon Sep 06, 2021 1:17 pm

I was thinking about other scholar tasks, and prior to printing presses one of the time consuming tasks for scholarly folks was transcribing an old, worn-out book so that new copies are created as old ones are taken out of circulation. This would have been extremely tedious work, and for a large enough collection of books would be a constant effort. To keep things more managable, maybe the better suggestion would be 'transcribe a chapter from a book' which would be on par with the clean stables task in terms of time one would spend on it. It might pay less and offer another chance for scholar skill practice (much like the document copy task). Titles could be taken from the same list as the shelving task.
