I've also got a can-o-scan LiDE 25.  Was delighted that it was also
the cheapest scanner available at the time.  The tech is funny though,
because of how the LiDE series work they can't scan at any depth.
Even the gutter in a book will give you trouble.  I still recommend it
though. Been very happy with it.
