Wikipedia is a great source of information. There is a page on almost any topic under the sun, but the only problem with Wikipedia is that it really doesn’t lend itself well to offline reading. If you’re the kind of person who likes to print lengthy Wikipedia articles to read offline at leisure, you should give the Wikipedia Book Creator a try.

The Book Creator is a new feature from Wikipedia that lets you select one or more pages from the online encyclopedia and add them to a PDF eBook that you can then download and read offline at your leisure. You can even get a printed book delivered to your doorstep, for a small fee.

If you would like to make some changes to the pages that you just saved, you can even download the eBook in the OpenDocument Text format.

    Great concept - I wonder if there is a way for this to work with any wiki content. In the genealogy field, I could see this being useful for sharing family tree wiki pages with family members who are not online.

    For many, if the the "regular" Wikipedia is too much, then also consider creating a book from the Simple Wikipedia
