    I have downloaded the URLtoPDF to the iPad but it doesn't work. I want to test it on my Windows 7 system. I google it and there are so many, so I don't know which is the one.

    When open browser then open website which you want to read then if it is according to your requirement add it to favorite tab, now you can find any time from favorite tab. When ever i was browsing save web pages relate to my grand pa interest. Then he read them while offline.

    I use Instapaper.
    Can't praise it high enough since I use it daily.
    Best of all you can transfer your pages to Evernote within the app.

    Thanks but I don't follow. What is favourite tab? I add it to Reading List. I turn off the wireless, then I can't read it.
    When I say offline, I mean no Internet.

    Again I would like to save something locally so that I can read without access to Internet.

    How to save web pages and read them off-line?

    Did you ever resolve the issue of using a bookmarklet to make a PDF of the web site? I'm sorry to ask this - but did you double check the JavaScript code if the answer is yes?

    I had to ask because I just copied and pasted the code from the bookmarklets link and it works fine on my iPad (no 404 errors)...

    And, it doesn't have to be opened in iBooks. It can be opened in any app that can read PDFs. See this for what I mean:

    I did. After I tried the original code from PDFmyURL.com - Free & Online: Convert and save PDF from any web page and it worked, I compared their code and yours on Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets.

    I found the JavaScript code with your post "javascriptdf_url=location.href;location.href='ht tp://pdfmyurl.com?url='+escape(pdf_url) " has a space on the protocol "http".
