Some easy way, maybe adjustment knobs, could be used to adjust the separation for the overall thickness of the book, along with adjusting the tension of the string(s).
The whole thing would also have to be as light as possible, so that it is relatively easy to remove the cradle, place the book on it, adjust the thing, and then place the cradle back in the scanner...
