Print Your Own Chess Book the Easy Way

     Back in May I did a post on using chess notebooks and earlier this month did one on Rolf Wetzell who suggested using flash cards, but I was thinking that if you have a program like Aquarium or Chess Assistant you could easily make a workbook with a three ring binder and a hole punch.
