Build book from webpages?

So this seems to still be the missing killer app, at least for me.

I want to take simple one page or multi page webpages and create a book out of them, with each site being a chapter. So for example, I'll go to google, look up a subject, and save the first 10 results, and each one ends up a chapter in an epub/mobi.

Is this possible with Calibre? I'm seeing references to plugins (not listed inside available plugins list inside calibre) and seeing references to loading in zip files. But that isn't really working for me.

What is everyone else doing to accomplish similar?

Use any of dozens of tools to save your html files to disk, then create an index.html file that links to the saved html files and convert that, as described here: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq....specific-order
