Instapaper Fetches 40 Articles

When I use the Instapaper built-in recipe (or the recipe here) it only downloads the most recent 40 articles. As I often add more than 40 articles between fethces, this is a problem for me.

Is there a way to increase this number?

the number of articles depends on the number of articles in the RSS feed provided by instapaper, contact them and ask them to increase that number.

Thanks very much for your reply Kovid. I contacted Instapaper this week but have yet to hear a reply. In the meantime, I propose the following solution:

On the instapaper page, download the html file of your feed. This contains up to 2,000 entries. It makes a numbered list of the links. If these links are prefaced with "http://www.instapaper.com/text?u=http%3A%2F%2F" they will produce the text versions we want.

Is there some process that Calibre could perform on this HTML file to produce a .mobi with the "articles and sections" list and the full feed in this way?

You can write a parse_index based recipe to do that. See the ny times example in the user manual

After a week, I have determined that this is beyond my level of expertise
