Lifehacker: Ebook Glue Transforms Blogs Into Ebooks

I just saw this post on Lifehacker (feed)

Basically it does this:

“The webapp takes an RSS feed, Atom feed, or URL and converts the blog into an ePub or Mobi file.”

I’ve often stumbled across a blog that I really want to read the history off. So with Ebook glue, instead of having to read it via  Google Reader (my preferred feed aggregator) on a laptop or gReader on my phone, which often don’t provide the full history of posts and sometimes require you to be online to access the history, I can bundle it all up and read it on any device of choice.

Whilst my blog doesn’t have a enough posts to warrant this (part of my new year resolution is to write more), these committed folks have a solid back catalogue worth reading:
