An interesting discussion just showed up on one of the forums I follow, and I thought it would make a good topic for the blog.
“Everyone knows” that ereaders are used for reading ebooks, but that’s not all they can do. A lot of readers, including yours truly, like to clip articles they find online and send the articles to their ereader for later enjoyment.
I’ve used Pocket & Instapaper in the past but both seem to be wonky now, and neither can be downloaded through calibre. Downloading through calibre is not necessary but it is convenient, when it works. Anyone using a system they like for compiling web articles for reading on the kindle?
Me, I prefer to use the Instapaper app on my Fire tablet. While Instapaper can send articles to the Kindle (Pocket has a similar feature for Kobo) I still prefer the app because the articles arrive faster and because I just prefer the tablet over an ereader.
Do you send web articles to your Kindle, or another ereader? What service do you use?
