Help with a simple scanner script?

I have to many things on my plate, AND I want to get rid of windows...problem is a bug in the Xsane+ kubuntu Fiesty Fawn Distro. I get a black scan.

After doing some hunting, I have found the backend to scan. "scan image" I haven't read the MAN yet, just threw together a haphazard script that almost works the way I want it to.

I am going to work in 3 minutes, so I thought that I would post it up here.
Help this newbie tweak the script so that it asks the proper parameters... format, resolution, and name, and uses these parameters.
Thank you! and again, the "L" in Linux = Learning

Here is my script:
echo -n "choose a Format: "
echo -n "choose a Resolution: "
echo -n "choose a name: "
read NAME
scanimage --format $FORMAT --resolution $RESOLUTION -x 215 -y 297 > ~/Desktop/$NAME.$FORMAT
