How can I better curate my daily/weekly reading list and improve the reading experience?

Does anyone know of a good way to better curate the blogs and articles I subscribe to/automatically sort through them? I have seen some iPad apps that claim to do things like this, but I don't have an iPad and I don't particularly want to be restricted to only reading on said device even if I did. Also, any solution for formatting articles in such a way that they could be printed to create a custom magazine or put on a kindle or something like that, to improve the reading experience?

One Book on Atheism I Should Read (read details!)

I am looking for one single book, perhaps a college-level read (not much higher), that explains the case for atheism. I'm not looking for any 'new atheist books', though I have enjoyed them -- especially Harris. I have read Bertrand Russell as well. I have a few atheist friends but do not want to talk to them about this as I am a Christian and don't want to give them the impression that I want to change them or judge them. I just want more exposure to it in a sincere and kind fashion without short bumper sticker like explanations. (BTW, I don't look at my friends as "Hey, here come my 'atheist' friends! But mainly here comes "Bob" and "Joe". I just don't think it is right to bug them about their positions or lack thereof. <--Not sure how to state that.) Thanks in advance for your book recommendation.

Around the world in 200 books

I'd like to read a book about each country's history, ideally one offering as comprehensive of a timeline as possible. My goal is to get a brief overview of the history of a region rather than a specific focus on any singularly important event. I'm looking for specific suggestions for any and all countries. Since that is a fairly wide net to cast, I'd settle for the best choices on the countries with the longest and most interesting histories and/or specifically interesting books. I have a Kindle, so bonus points for books available in that format.
