Reading articles picked up from the Web

I tend to read a lot of articles from various Web sites: newspaper sites, blogs, etc. Is there a convenient way to read those offline on the Onyx Boox readers (I am considering getting an M92)? Ideally, I'd use a Web service such as Pocket (formerly ReadItLater) or Instapaper, but perhaps there is another solution. I'd like to avoid having to convert each article to PDF or whatever and then send it over to the reader.

You definately want the "GrabMyBooks" Firefox extension.

Looks nice, except that I don't use Firefox... But I discovered that Calibre can make e-books from Pocket or Instapaper reading lists, which could be a good solution for me. I just wish I could automative the transfer to the reader somehow. With all machines having WiFi, using a USB cable feels like a hassle.

Why not use the SD-card and a SD-card reader? I find it extremely convenient and fast, and even no need to switch the M92 on.

I'd prefer a network-based solution because I work with several desktop machines, including one to which I don't have reliable physical access, so I can't plug in an SD card reader.
