ABBYY Finereader is much better for the task, but even with that I'm guessing you will not want to go through the effort required, which is substantial.

Google for Acrobat OCR if you want to research more.
Thanks for the help, Idolse. I'm already looking into getting the books in another format. Not sure if I can afford it though. Most of the ebooks I want are around $8'ish a piece, which is probably around the same price as a physical book so I can't complain. But my income is very small. =(

They were a gift to me last year from a friend. I feel awkward about going back to her about it. How do you go back to someone and say "Hey, those books you bought for me didn't work right."? I'm looking into buying them in a different format. Thanks Harry. =)
