Page feeder does single-sided scans only. How to integrate pages...

...It asks me for a file name when the operation is complete, and it adds a number to each file name, in sequential order. So if I choose a for the file name and I've scanned 50 pages, it will be like this: a1.jpg, a2.jpg...

And then I'll flip the stack of pages over to do the other side and I can name them b.

So I'll have 50 images with a base name of a and 50 images with a base name of b and I'll need to automatically have all the corresponding pages paired with each other, which will result in a digital copy of the book that's in order.

So how can I do this? Perhaps there's a function in ABBYY FineReader for this?

If I understand you correctly, this .bat file should do the trick:
Code:
echo off
SET /a i=1
SET /a p=1
SET /a maxpage=10

:loop
IF %i%==%maxpage% GOTO END
rename a%i%.jpg page%p%.jpg 
SET /a p=%p%+1
rename b%i%.jpg page%p%.jpg 
SET /a i=%i%+1
SET /a p=%p%+1

GOTO LOOP

:end
Edit the value for "maxpage" so the script stops when you're out of pages. This will rename your images like this:
rename a1.jpg page1.jpg
rename b1.jpg page2.jpg
rename a2.jpg page3.jpg
rename b2.jpg page4.jpg
rename a3.jpg page5.jpg
rename b3.jpg page6.jpg
... and so on.

(No guarantes. Run it on a test folder first.)

This will give a better result - it will give you filenames like page001, page010, page110 that sorts much better:

Code:
echo off
SET /a i=1
SET /a p=1
set /a maxpage=15

:loop
IF %i%==%maxpage% GOTO END

IF %p% LSS 10 (
  rename a%i%.jpg page00%p%.jpg 
) ELSE (
  IF %p% LSS 100   (
	rename a%i%.jpg page0%p%.jpg 
  )  ELSE   ( 
    rename a%i%.jpg page%p%.jpg 
  )
)

SET /a p=%p%+1
IF %p% LSS 10 (
  rename b%i%.jpg page00%p%.jpg 
) ELSE (
  IF %p% LSS 100   (
	rename b%i%.jpg page0%p%.jpg 
  )  ELSE   ( 
    rename b%i%.jpg page%p%.jpg 
  )
)

SET /a i=%i%+1
SET /a p=%p%+1

GOTO LOOP

:end

Rather than using maxpage why not
Code:
:loop
IF NOT EXIST  a%i%.jpg GOTO END
...
...
SET /a p=%p%+1
IF NOT EXIST  b%i%.jpg GOTO END
IF %p% LSS 10 (

Type them into a batch file and run it from a command prompt.

So, there's another issue. I didn't realize that when doing the even numbered pages that they'd be "end to start." In other words, the odd numbered pages are beginning of the book to end, but then I flipped the stack of pages over to do the even pages and so the first scan is the last page of the book and the last scan is the first page of the book. So I need to reverse the order of the even numbered batch of pages before doing the interspersing process.

That is the reason why I don't scan direct to jpg, but to jpg encapsulated in pdf. Then I can solve it with one command with PDF Toolkit:

pdftk A=odd.pdf B=even.pdf shuffle A Bend-1 output book.pdf

Input the pdf in ABBYY and you are good to go.

Split the bat file into two different loops. One counts up and renames the even numbered pages, the other counts down and renames the odd numbered pages.
