Convert Websites To Ebooks

Monday, December 26th, 2011

If you’ve ever wanted to convert an article to an ebook for later reading, it’s usually a two or three step process, but DotEPUB is a Chrome extension that handles the conversion in one simple click.

DotEPUB resides next to your URL bar as a green dot. If you find an article you want converted, all you need to do is click it once and it will download the article in an EPUB format. From there, you can load the file up on your ereader of choice. You don’t get much in the way of options, but you can choose to have DotEPUB remove all the links and images if you want a simplified reading experience. If you have a lot of articles stored up you want to bring along with you on a trip and you don’t have access to read-it-later services, this will work in a pinch.
