To get rid of ink bleed with books that have thin paper, try putting a piece of black card stock behind the page or pages you are scanning.
I do this with my wand scanner and also have affixed a piece to my flatbed scanner. Really helps eliminate the bleed effect!
Thanks for the report on this scanner!
