Most of us are fans of Wikipedia website because of the huge information available there. There are millions who regularly print the content available at Wikipedia for their college work, projects or personal research. Recently we found a new service from the Wikipedia group called as ‘PediaPress‘ which allows you to easily print our all your favorite pages from Wikipedia, which would be sent to you in the form of a Hard Copy at any address all over the world.
The navigation in wikipedia is quite easy, and this tool offers a small set of options on any Wikipedia pages when its enabled, giving you simple ways to add pages to your new book. Once you have added all the pages, you can customize them by moving them to front or back and then once you have finalized you can ship it to your location. The shipping costs are not much which ranges between 2-5$ for most locations all over the world.
In order to create your Book using Wikipedia Book Creator, you need to first access this link on which you will find a button called ‘Start Book Creator’. Once you select this you will be redirected to the Homepage of Wikipedia along with a small frame on the top as shown below.
Next you need to visit the pages which you would like to be a part of your Printed Book. I went ahead searching for information related to Yoga & Health Tips because that could be a ultimate pocket guide with the best information available. While you mouse over different links when the ‘Book Creator’ option is activated, you will find a small link which will allow you to instantly add pages to your book as shown below.
Another advantage of using this tool is that, you can Save Wikipedia content in the form of a PDF file, which can also be printed from your own printer at home.
The Suggest Pages option in the Book Creator menu would give you a list of Suggested Pages for your book based on your current selections, which you may have missed or which can be useful for the guide you are printing. Next you need to Manage your book by giving a Title and Subtitle which can either be the name of the book you are getting printed or else your own name. Click on Preview with PediaPress following which all the pages are analyzed and the book is compiled.
The price quote is based on the number of pages you select for your book following which you can customize the front page with the Image options and also the background color. Click on the Preview for getting a lightbox type window for the price estimation. The book would be printed within 2 business days and shipped to your home.
