Print Your Own Custom Book from Wikipedia

For all the scare-mongering about books and reading, first, the TV should have killed them, now it’s the Internet, people seem to be doing a lot more reading than ever before. Still, all the content online has spoiled us and we’ve come to expect being able to access any information at any time. Luckily, there’s a project that brings the best of both worlds. Wikipedia has partnered with PediaPress to offer users a way to create fully customized books with content from Wikipedia and the program has now been extended to the English language version of the site.

“That's it, the book creator has gone live in the English Wikipedia! A few hours ago, the book creator has been made available to all users of the English Wikipedia. This feature, which allows all readers to create books from Wikipedia articles, has been until now only available to logged-in users. It has been available in other Wikipedias for a longer time, it's now available on the English Wikipedia, for all, without restrictions,” PediaPress announced.

The file was too big to upload here so I uploaded it to Scribd, so you will also see how nicely HTML5 works as an online PDF reader (Scribd Ditches Flash in Favor of HTML5).
