News that wikipedia’s book compilation service is now widely available after having been in limited release for a while:
Users can create the book without leaving Wikipedia. A “create a book” button has been added in the print/export section of Wikipedia‘s left navigation sidebar that brings them to the book creator. When you browse the site, you can add articles to the book by clicking the “Add the Page” button.
Users can then arrange the order of the articles, choose a cover photo and
give the book its title and an editor‘s name. The price of the unique books depends on the number of pages and starts at $8.90. Books are ready for shipment within two working days.
If you go to the book creator page, you can also download the compiled book as a pdf. Interesting…
