These books are HEAVY. I'll need the use of them during school hours, but I bus 2 hours to school, plus campus is massive, I'd like to be able to import the pages of most of the required chapters in to a PDF or jpgs or something to stick on my laptop. What's the best way to do this? Tripod with camera facing down, shoot at correct exposure? Would I need some flash/lighting to make sure it's all readable, or would a longer exposure/fast aperture give me even illumination on the pages? This is for my personal use and I do not plan on doing this to return the books, or share them with friends to save them money. If it is still illegal, I apologize and will delete. Thanks!
