NEWSTOEBOOK – a new way to get your RSS feeds

I've just come across a new website that will turn RSS feeds into an ebook. It's called, appropriately enough, NEWSTOEBOOK. You can use it to make Epub or Mobi ebooks from almost any RSS feed, and soon you'll be able to gather tweets, too. BTW, Feedbooks used to provide a similar ability, but they stopped for some reason. I'm glad I found a replacement.

I've tried this with a couple blogs, and for the most part it works well. The ebooks are well formatted, there's a TOC, and in general it's a decent read. But there are a couple not so good points. All the images were converted to grayscale, and there was no need for that. I'm reading it on a laptop, so the lack of color was a disappointment. Also, I looked but did not see a self update button built in to the ebook. That would have been nice to have.

But it's only fair that I point out that NEWSTOEBOOK is still under development, and I'm sure it will improve as time goes by. If it ever gets to the point where I don't have to go back to the website each time, it's going to be very useful.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Have you tried kindlefeeder.com ?

    Can selected a number of them to make a daily combined book with TOC .

    Others like Calibre. But, maybe it doesn’t do the images. I don’t think kindlefeeder does either but I haven’t used it for awhile so I don’t know.

  2. I use Calibre to create mobi file using RSS; it has already over 800 recipes for different sites.
