I need one that can take close ups and be able to see the words clearly. If anyone knows of any, I would apprecate it. Thanks!

Generally, any digital camera in your price range that has a "macro" lens or "macro" setting will give you good results for close-ups.

For flat items such as CDs DVDs Post Cards books  etc etc often a scanner does a better job than a camera.

Also, try to avoid using a flash. Use as much diffused or natural light as you can.
