I want a cheap e-reader for reading longform articles in bed. It must work with Readability or InstaPaper or the like. It does not need to do anything else like games or surfing the intertubes. I have an iPhone for that. Do I want a Kindle?

I'm having no luck transferring the *complete* web page of 197 responses to this question posed by edge.org
(previously on the blue, I think) to my little friend, a Kindle Keyboard (aka Kindle 3).
I've tried using both Instapaper and Readability, but I think there's code in the webpage to disable a complete scraping. I'm also attempting to use calibre, and if anybody has a recipe that downloads a plain
web page (probably using something called "web2disk") in calibre, I'm all ears.

I think I want a Kindle, but not to read Amazon books. Looking for real world experience from Kindle owners using Gutenberg books and Instapaper. Specifically Kindle 4 and Kindle Touch. Thanks in advance. [more inside]

I cannot figure out how to transfer articles I've saved at Instapaper to my new Kindle 3. From what I read it ought to be possible, but after two days I can't set it up. If I understand correctly, Instapaper will email to my kindle email address the articles I select to be sent, and the Kindle is somehow supposed to receive them via my Wi-Fi.
Need I admit I'm a bit clueless? I need very specific step-by-step directions and or suggestions for finding / hiring somebody to set this up for me. I bought the Kindle mainly to be able to do this.
I work on Mac Book Pro.

Does anybody know of additional article aggregation sites that link to instapaper? I'm currently using both givemesomethingtoread.com and longform.org, but would love to peruse more of they're out there.

I'm considering purchasing a Kindle (or other ebook reader depending on advice) primarily to read links sent it via Read It Later or Instapaper. Which is the best device for this type application, and what is the workflow like to get articles routinely routed to the ebook reader. I prefer a device that makes it as seamless and easy as possible. Any tips?
