Buying a copy from Amazon looks like your best bet then. I'm not removing the books spine.
I hate damaging books too, so I built a dual-camera book scanner instead.
The TV is for the video output of both cameras so I can turn off the LCD's to save power and I don't have to crane my neck around when I want to focus.
It's mostly finished I just need to solder the switch but the holidays and overtime got in my way.
