Free Daily News RSS Reader Book

I found Kindle's RSS/XML newsfeed support lacking, so I coding a web app that will solve a little bit of that.
What it does? You supply some links to rss feeds and it will send you an ebook with links for the titles to the Web Browser. Very simple, yet it's something that I think is lacking, if I'm wrong, just disregard my past couple hours of coding and say, been there, done that.

How it works:
Visit my site: http://andymendoza.com/kindle.php.
It's pretty self explanatory. Supply your email to your kindle (I'd use your free one, I don't want complaints about people getting charged for conversion or something like that).
Supply a title for your Feed (try to avoid special characters, I strip it but it may help in not getting weird errors).
That's it, click submit. If you want it right then click the box to send it now, it will automatically send at 5amEST once each day.

Feedback is welcome.

Most sites have an RSS feed, just gotta find them, you can find Yahoos! and WSJ rss feeds at these links.

Also, for now you can add as many feeds as you like. However, if it gets to be too many per user I may have to limit it.
And also, make sure that you link an RSS feed. :P
An example one will usually end in .xml. But not always. If you don't have your browser set up with a reader it will look like this. http://online.wsj.com/xml/rss/3_7011.xml
For twitter users, keep in mind it will send only when you request it or at 5am. And the link to the RSS feeds is underneath the Followers where it says: RSS feed of *names* tweets.
Don't forget to add my email to your safe list of attachments from emails you recognize: kindle@andymendoza.com.
