iPad + Kobo + Instapaper = Awesome

Longtime readers might remember me ranting about not enjoying the reading experience at online magazines such as Strange Horizons or Clarkesworld. I very much dislike scrolling and prefer a paging experience. This is probably one of the reasons I really like reading eBooks on the iPad as all the book apps use a paging interface.

Anyways yesterday I stumbled upon a good solution… using Instapaper I can flag stories I want to read later and then read them through the Kobo app on the iPad. This gives me the ability to page-read (no scrolling!)

So I’m happy.

And now I’m going to go sit downstairs by the fire and finish reading Tony Pi’s excellent story “The Gold Silkworm”.
