The fun thing about scanning paper books is that everyone has their own way to do scan a book. Some people set up cheap DIY book scanning setups, some invest in a special ScanSnap SV600, and a whole community has sprung up around book scanning.
Awesome DocumentSnap reader Samuel in Sweden sent me a video with his solution involving a stove (!) and a pretty clever little tool me made. He then scans with his ScanSnap iX500.
Obviously this won’t work if you want to hang on to the book after so it won’t be for everyone, but it works well for Samuel.
