Make your own "free" Sudoku books

Picture of Make your own
I love Sudoku, but I'm cheap. Sure, there are plenty of places on the net that I can do Sudoku for free. I could get five or ten puzzles a day. But not on the airplane when I fly every week. I need a book for that. But I'm cheap, remember?

Step 2: Make the Sudokus

Can't print what you haven't made yet, right? How to make a Sudoku? I use Simple Sudoku by Angus Johnson It lets you create Sudoku puzzles, and save them.

First, create a puzzle. Next, save it. You want to do this a lot. I like to create books of 40 puzzles. When you print them (coming up) they will be double sided, with four puzzles per side. My 40 puzzles become a 20 page book. You decide how many you want to make and print.

Step 3: Print multiple puzzles

This is the best part of the program. It lets you print all the puzzles you just created--four to a page. From the File menu, choose Print> then Multiple Puzzles....

An Open File type dialog will pop up. Select all the puzzles you created in the last step, and click on Open.

The printer dialog box will pop up. Set the printer to print double sided, if you can. If not, you can do half your puzzles in one print, flip the paper, and print the other half. Or, you could just print it one sided. Doesn't really matter.

Step 5: Cut the puzzles

1) Cut them in half, lengthwise, any way you can. I like the big old fashioned paper cutters. You can use what you want.

2) Cut them in half again. You'll end up with two lengths of paper, so you'll need to even them up.

3) Cut them to even them up.

THANKS!
Normally I wouldn't do this, but since I'm not dropshipping right now: http://vistawholesale.zoovy.com/product/SUDOKU

But you gotta hurry, it's on closeout. It'd cost me $6.25 to buy one of these and that's including S/H, but I'm not a huge Sudoku fan. You can also buy other things there for less too.
