Printing your document in booklet format allows you to save space and paper and read your document as you would a book. With a word processing program such as Microsoft Word, you have the option to print your document in a booklet format if your document has two pages or more. Word will turn your document layout into landscape mode so you can fold the pages in half, creating a spine similar to that of a book and read your document that way. Open your document in Microsoft Word. Go to the "Page Layout" tab..
