How do I get News feeds on my reader?

I seen this post on another thread.

This, the BMOC of them all, is of limited use to laypersons like me because so many of it's best features are subscription-only, and subscribing to Nature is not cheap! ($199.00 per year for USA residents.)

The fact that all articles in Nature are peer-reviewed sets it apart from most other sites.

The following are all available as calibre newsfeeds for your e-reader:

Discover
http://discovermagazine.com/

New Scientist
http://www.newscientist.com/news.ns

This is one of my favorite sites. Rarely does a week go by that I haven't visited this site at least once.

ScienceDaily
http://www.sciencedaily.com/

There's an article on today's newspage about how hardening of the arteries has been detected in 3,500 years old Egyptian mummies, which doesn't surprise me. When you're that old, you're bound to have a few health problems!

ScienceNews
http://www.sciencenews.org/

Scientific American
http://www.sciam.com/




I have a Sony PRS-505. How do I get newsfeeds from the sites listed above onto my reader? Could someone please tell me? Thanks

You answered your own question in your post ... (1) get Calibre, (2) install it on your computer, (3) use it to fetch newsfeeds, and (4) send them to your Sony Reader.
