Continuing with yesterday’s theme of “things I wish stuff I use could do….”
Yesterday a friend turned me on to David Hieatt’s Do One Thing Well blog. So I read a post, I like it, and I add David’s blog to my Google reader.
The problem is that I’m jumping in mid-stream. David’s been writing great stuff for a long time. He’s written a book’s worth of stuff (at least). If I had the option, I’d like to download this blook (blog + book = blook) into an e-reader and use my reading time to curl up with David’s blog instead of my next book.
Of course this functionality exists today, kinda sorta. I can have Google reader fetch all the posts David has ever written and I can read them from back to front, or I can use Reeder or some other iPad RSS app to see everything in a book-like fashion. But that’s not what I’m looking for.
I want a button on every blog that downloads the full blog (or as much as the blog author wants, or I want) directly to my e-reader. I want this button to be as simple and as standard as the RSS feed link. And, in a perfect world, on the e-Reader side I’d like to be able to to create and rearrange virtual chapters by keyword (maybe that happens only once when I do the download, for simplicity).
David’s already written a blook. I just wish it were easier for me to read it.
