    Hi,

    Is there an app that would fetch and convert Internet electronic media, such as newspapers, into ebook formats for the pb?

    Right now, I use Calibre (on the pc) to fetch and convert some newspapers that I subscribe to, and then transfer them on my pb to read with my ebook reader. But I'd rather be able to do everything straight from the tablet.

    Thanks.

    I wonder if there's a site that can turn a link into a pdf file if that would work?

    If that's what you want, this would probably do it for you : Buy Offline Reader - Download Offline Reader - Buy Apps from BlackBerry App World

    But I'm really looking for ebook format : no images or links. That's how I've grown to appreciate reading my news since I own this tablet.

    Hi

    To convert html and pdf's (& word docs) into eBooks I use mobipocket creator (free) on my PC

    Also - I sometimes just use Adobe Acrobat to clip into PDFs

    But these two methods seems just as manual as what you already do with Calibre...

    NB: The big advantage for me of transferring to eBook (as opposed to pdf) is that when I distribute text-rich documents (eg few images) the recipients can easily read the documents on many different devices (the pages/fonts adjust to fit their screens)

    Please post again if you find a single automated product that does the whole process in one go....
