How can I automatically get Harper's Weekly Review on my Kindle?

Harper's Weekly Review is sent by email each week, and I would like to read it on my kindle. How can I set this up automatically?

I'm familiar with forwarding text to my Kindle by email, but as I understand it, the text needs to be an attachment. I can use either gmail or Google Apps email accounts to receive the initial message. The Kindle is the latest generation e-ink with a keyboard, 3g, and wifi.

If you used your Kindle email address to subscribe, wouldn't it automatically send to your Kindle? You can find your Kindle email address under Manage Your Kindle > Personal Document Settings.

Response by poster: I think the kindle email requires the text to be in an attachment; the Weekly Review email is plaintext. Also, I believe you need to confirm the email. I can't reply from that address.

Don't know if the right ingredients are there or not, but this sounds like a job for ifttt.

Best answer: Have your email program auto-forward the Weekly Review to your Instapaper "mail-in" address here. Then, link your Instapaper and Kindle accounts (make sure to have @instapaper added as a trusted email sender on Amazon's site). Have Instapaper send scheduled updates to your free Kindle email address. You should be good to go.

Calibre will schedule and email to your Kindle from a huge number of news sources and websites. Might be worth a try.
