Pocket/Instapaper to Kindle via IFTTT

Hello folks,

so I just got my first eReading device: the Paperwhite 3 .
I am currently using Pocket for saving articles that I want to read.
Now I'm trying to get all my articles from there onto my PW automatically, but still keep them in my in my Pocket in case I want to read them elsewhere. Alternatively I wouldn't mind switching to Instapaper for that purpose.

I searched the internet and found several ways to do it for some articles on a specified interval. But that is not what I want since I don't have a daily routine to read my articles but rather do that spontaneously.

The way I was trying it until now was by using IFTTT to send every new article to my Kindle email through my regular email account. The Problem with that is that the Kindle email service only works with attachments, so I would have to attach the article. At first that seems really easy by using the article URL as attachment. Unfortunately Pocket and Instapaper don't use the direct URL for that but only redirect to it. So the only thing I get to see on my Kindle is the redirection page .

Since there are a plethora of recipes for that purpose on IFTTT already I thought perhaps I am doing something wrong, because all of them essentially work the same way as mine from what I understand . So I thought I'd ask here as there are probably some guys around here who already use that idea or have a different approach to doing that .

TL;DR
I want to send saved articles to my Kindle every time I save one and not periodically, but couldn't find a way to do that.

Hi, Nekian. I've just recently started using the Push To Kindle extension (Google Chrome) and bookmarklet (Internet Explorer) from fivefilters.org to send web articles directly to my Kindle as I find them during browsing. Could be of use to you.

Thanks for the suggestion .
Unfortunately that's not exactly what I was searching for, as I still want my articles to be in my Pocket/Instapaper in case I want to read them on a different device .

Edit: Updated first post with that information.

You could use calibre with the builtin news recipe to download your Pocket/Instapaper articles and email them your your Kindle email address.

That is a periodic solution though, not an instant one.

Thanks for trying to help , but as you said it's periodic hence not exactly what I was searching for :/.

I find myself in that situation too from time to time. What I've ended up doing is just manually adding the article to either service using an extension or bookmarklet, then to Kindle using Push To Kindle. It's an extra couple of mouse clicks, but I don't find it too onerous. Let us know if you find a more elegant solution!
