I might try this myself one of these days. Thanks for sharing the idea.
I'm quite curious how the long exposure affects the quality of the resulting scan in poor light. Has anybody had good results doing that or upping the ISO setting? Unfortunately most point and shoots don't allow increasing the aperture separately, but perhaps increasing the exposure can take care of that a bit?
I also commend the minimal idea. I think the clips are a nice touch. If you were desperate, could you even go into a library with just those and lean the open book cover against a stack of other books?
