I just purchased a HP officejet 7300 and while reading an ebook on my pda I began to realize how cool it was having a digital book I could add notes too, bookmark and so on. I have a ton of books, especially magazines taking up space and I was wondering, how easy would it be to dissassemble a book, throw the pages on my automated scanner and scan to pdf? I would be doing it on a "scan as I want to read" pace except maybe for my magazines, it would be cool to just digitize the lot of those and toss them in the garbage. I do not mind destroying the books I wanna digitize as long as the process is really quick and can perhaps be done all on its own. I know my scanner can scan on its top portion multiple loose sheets, so if I could somehow dismantle the books/magazines so that they where all loose sheets that would be excellent.
Ofcourse flatbed scanning is outta the question. It has a flatbed scanner but scanning each individual page is obviously ludicrous.
Am I clutching at straws or is this feasible at all for a lone guy like me? Or is there a reason they have those huge mechanical machines that turn each page of the book and use optical cameras to snap each page (apart from trying to presevre the book?)
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
