Both are free and open source:

1) Notebox Mismanager sounds like a match made in heaven:


The screenshot he shows does *not* do it justice. I use the program
myself, and could offer better screenshots. It's an unusual,
eccentric, fascinating little program that allows you to store your
text in whatever kind of order or disorder you like. (:

2) Another possibility that I highly recommend is my Book on a Stick


It's a cross-platform wiki in a self-contained file that runs entirely
in your browser and, thanks to the dedication and hard work of an
amazing good samaritan, a new version will soon be coming out. (:
