Robin Good's insight:



Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.


Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.


There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.


Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.


PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.


N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.


More info about printed versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Frequently_Asked_Questions ;


Free to use.

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content. 

Weeny PDF to Flash Converter : un logiciel gratuit pour convertir les fichiers PDF en fichiers flash

From freewares-tutos.blogspot.fr

Weeny PDF to Flash Converter est, comme son nom l'indique, un logiciel qui permet de convertir (par lots) des fichiers PDF en fichiers Flash. Bien qu'en anglais, il est facile à utiliser : il suffit d'ajouter des fichiers PDF à la liste, de sélectionner le répertoire de destination, puis de cliquer sur le bouton "Convert Now!" pour lancer la conversion.


Weeny PDF to Flash Converter ne nécessite pas Adobe Acrobat Reader pour fonctionner et ne dépend pas d'un pilote d'impression : il n'installe pas un pilote d'imprimante sur votre ordinateur.

Weeny PDF to Flash Converter fonctionne sous Windows XP, Vista, 7 et Windows 8.
