has long allowed logged in users of Wikipedia to create printed-on-demand books
of one or more Wikipedia articles, but now Wikipedia has integrated into their interface
the ability to make a book. No, not like that.
Of course, the value of printing an ever-changing information resource can be debated, and some
think it's a waste of time. Previously.
Click "Print/export" on the right side of a Wikipedia page, and then click "Create a book" to start assembling articles into a nice shiny book
for your offline perusal. Once you start making a book, hovering over links allows you to add those articles to your book.
PediaPress was somewhat rudimentary when it first started, only allowing you to print out an alphabetized group of articles, but now you can put them in any order and organize them in chapters.
If you don't feel up to the task of curating articles into a book, you can browse PediaPress's catalog of books
that have already been created by someone.
In addition, if you don't really feel like paying for a book, now you can also export Wikipedia articles into ready-to-print PDF files by clicking Print/export > Download as PDF.
10% of the proceeds from PediaPress go to the Wikimedia Foundation.
