turn your blog into a book. Why?

Seen on my feeds – http://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/mtarchive/002692.html. It basicly turns your blog into a printable pdf book. First thing, I could make a xsl-fo stylesheet to do this using cocoon within a afternoon.

Query blojsom for all its entries ever written using the simple ?entries=-1 add flavor=rdf and your well away. Transform the rdf into pdf using xsl-fo and your done. Hey even write a simple webservice so you can submit a url and get a binary file back?

But my question really is why? why oh why would you want a book of your entries? Saying that I'm use to reading on screen so maybe I'm the wrong person to ask the question? By the way I'm reading Cory Doctorow's Standard Eastern Tribe on my ipaq and its an excellent read so far (page 63/128)
