View Web Pages on your nook

View the web on your nook... without rooting your device!? Instapaper is a great tool that lets you browse the web and quickly bookmark web sites you'd like to review later.  They have a new "beta" feature allows you to take those sites you saved off and create an ePub file that you can side load onto your nook.

How might you use this? Maybe during the work day you run across a lot of articles you want to read on a business flight.  Instapaper allows you to collect all those and view them offline on your long plane trip ... or during those hours waiting in the airport.

It's pretty easy to use.  I put together a short "screen-cam" video demo on how to use the tool.  Hope you find it useful!

Thanks for the ip. This sounds nice but I'm a little curious if you could slap the SIM from a Global Kindle 2 into a Nook and have access to the web.

I really like the Nook, but the misses prefers her global Kindle 2 and I have to say that it is nice to simply view the web live at times and read real time articles, email, news, reviews, etc. I prefer the Nook but we use the kindle more when out b/c of this feature. Web pages load slow on the e-ink, but are easier on the eyes than a smart phone's display once they are loaded.

I truly hope B&N adds a browser and web access but have a feeling they won't. I've heard the 3G sims in them lock out all web access except to B&N store, so it seems unlikely the nook will ever have a browser... at least not on 3G (maybe only in hot spots but not out at a park or in your car)

Anyone heard of this? Replacing the SIM in the Nook to allow internet access via a soft root and browser?

have you tried this with an online magazine?
would it save it so you could read it later on Nook?
