Topic: Streamlining the Scanning of Books via Acrobat/Mac OS X

In the next few weeks I will be attempting to scan my textbooks into my computer for "ease of use". I will be using a HP OfficeJet 4415xi which has a 20 page feeder, and Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0. I will be on a Powerbook G4 1.5ghz 2GB ram.

The whole process is:
1) Create new PDF
2) Select HP Pro (TWAIN)
3) The HP Scan Pro window pops up and I set it to "Black and White", 300dpi, then I hit "New Scan".
4) I set the image capture to 8.5/11in and hit accept.
5) Acrobat askes me for the next page and I repeat steps 3-5 forever and ever.

Is there anyway to speed up this process? Like using something else instead of TWAIN, HP Scan Pro, etc? Also is there a way to use the sheet feeder so i can scan multiple documents and just walk away?

Lastly, if there are other posts, tutorials, etc, that have covered this topic and i have just been oblivious, sorry!

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
