Saving from Reader View yields an unreadable file...

A lot of pages are only readable in reader view.

When I switch to reader view, and save as an html file for personal reference, I get a blank page, not the readable file. So either I need to switch into unreadable view, before saving, or I need to save as another format.

I've tested this on Linux and get the same reader page as I saved. Make sure you select "Web Page, complete" when you save the file. I get the empty page if I save with "Web Page, HTML only".
