    Alright, so. Tomorrow I'll be picking myself up an e-reader and one of the things I'd like to do is find a service that takes RSS feeds and puts them all in to a PDF or word file every couple of days for easy reading on my commute. Now other than not knowing if such a service exists (help?) I also don't really know many good RSS feeds out there.

    So what do you read? Topics can be anything. news, weirdness, SCIENCE...anything. What feeds do you read Whitechapel?

    Im on my phone so i cannot easily link but i read Lifehacker, how-to-geek,bleeding cool and weekly crisis.

    I used to follow physorg but they post a ton and its hard yo keep up.

    Lowering the Bar
    The Thirsty Wench (well, I do!)
    Babel Clash
    The Pioneer Woman's recipe feed (because she makes some killer food)

    My RSS feeder is nigh on impossible to manage due to a massive number of feeds, but here's a selection that's not already been mentioned:

    Beyond the Beyond (Bruce Sterling's wired blog)
    global guerillas
    Ars Technica

    And from my "whitechapel" folder:

    the weaponizer feed
    Bob's Blog
    Screw Jeff Owens
    Shades of Caruso

    (I am subscribed to a few more of the blogs that people here run - incl the thirsty wench, but these are the ones I tend to 'go to' first. Also, the ones that get updated more frequently...)

    I had similar problems to Beamish with the physorg feed, and the new scientist too.

    I am finding RSS to be really more useful for lengthier reads rather than staying up to date with the latest updates nowadays anyway - Twitter does that job much better. But I tend to wade into it at the weekends when I am otherwise in low-power mode so I can digest info at a steadier pace.

    I'm pretty sure Warren has posted about RSS -> .pdf services in the past.

    Warren posted about a service called "Tabbloid" that seems to do this job

    we make money not art
    The Rhizome Frontpage

    These are the ones I have that have't been mentioned (like BoingBoing,, Seth Godin, etc.). I have a ton more but all are related to webcomics, comics authors and local politics.
