Of course, it may not really be worthwhile considering I rarely re-read books. I guess it will depend on how soon after release they lower the price.
I'm looking at this alternative as well. There are some inexpensive (at least if you already own a digital camera) plans for a do it yourself book scanner at Instructables.
