Sending text based web pages to kindle
I spend a good bit of time reading forums that contain older archived posts that sometimes number in the hundreds. I'd like to try to send these pages as documents to the kindle instead but one of the sites I'd like to do this for, I'm not having any luck at all. I've tried instapaper and a chrome extension and neither one works.
Here's a sample link: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/512308
The chrome extension seems to be only getting the first post. Everything following that is ignored. Instapaper gives me the following error:
Sorry, this page is not available in Instapaper. It may require a login, or the site may not have responded when Instapaper tried to get it.
Does anyone have any suggestions on other ways to get these pages onto my kindle so I can read offline? It's the perfect sort of reading for when I've just got a few minutes here and there and I don't want to get too engrossed in a book.
On a related note, I can get instapaper to work on this site: http://ecfans.com/cgi-bin/forums/ult...;f=15;t=000944
It's a fan fiction that's been written in parts in a forum, so the story spans over several threads of 20 pages each with plenty of chatter and comments between each installment. Does anyone know of a good way to get this onto my kindle in a single document without having to download each page and copy/paste it all into a single notepad txt file?A single story can easily span 100+ web pages.

download the pages using an app like WinHTTrack, then zip and convert to mobi via calibre
