Wikipedia books

Hey, with the wifi only Kindle being a nice option for those, like me, strapped for cash, I just wanted to share what I think is the best solution for offline wikipedia viewing.

http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Books

Lets you dowload 'books' created by others (essentially collected articles), but the choice isn't amazing. You can however create your own books under the print/export option on the left hand side, and add whole catergories; unfortunately they're only avaliable as pdf's, but calibre can lend a hand with that.
Anyway enjoy

For any Wikipedia users that use non-standard themes or site preferences (like me) - the print/export option does not show up in all of them. I didn't check them all, I just changed mine back to the default settings and now it's right where it should be in the left-hand menu. Thought this might be helpful for anyone who can't find it.
