How to Use Instapaper to Read Your Favorite Online Authors, Offline

instapaper23.jpgThe Password Incorrect blog has an excellent step-by-step primer on how to take Fictionaut short stories off the webpage and read them on your favorite eReader. When you our browsing our Best Online Writers Directory, you can use the same steps to save the work of these socially networked authors.

Here’s an excerpt, but visit Password Incorrect for the full instructions: “When being still connected to the Internet you can sync an Instapaper application on your device (like iPhone or iPad) with your account. All the content will be downloaded and that means: available for off-line reading. But there is one more thing Instapaper did to move reading one step closer to a book-like feeling. The content stored at your account can be downloaded to Kindle or as an ePub file.”

Welcome to eBookNewser’s Digital Writer Spotlight. We’ve launched this feature to recognize the established and emerging voices within these communities.
