How to Create an eBook from Wikipedia


Wikipedia makes it very simple to create an eBook from articles on the site:

  1. Go to the Book creator page to start a book by clicking "Start book creator"
  2. Visit any pages you want to add to the book and click "Add this page to your book" at the top
  3. Click "Show book" at the top of the page when you are done
  4. Select which format (currently PDF, ODT, OpenZIM or EPUB) and then click "Download"

If you're looking for a way to convert your EPUB Wikipedia eBook to MOBI for a Kindle, check out Calibre.

Update 2015-07-17: Apparently Wikipedia has redesigned how these documents are created and disabled all but PDF export: [Wikitech-ambassadors] Changes to PDF export; ZIM/EPUB will be disabled soon. However, you can still export your book in the PDF format and use Calibre to convert it to MOBI or EPUB.
