...turns out to be a great way to scan figures. It's a ton faster than using my own scanner, and the resolution isn't too much worse. I'm writing a few math-oriented and cs-oriented posts with figures right now, and the book scanner means I can just box figures in my notebooks and use Gimp / Picasa Web Albums to crop things down and clear up the colors. It's a much faster pipeline than what I had before, and I'll hopefully make use of it to put lots of pretty figures in my posts.
