google reader for Kindle and Nook

The Kindle and other eReaders are great for reading books, but you don’t have to stop there. With a bit of initial work, you can turn your Kindle or Nook into a competent reader of your RSS feeds from Google Reader. G:RSS-Web is a service that allows you to access your Google Reader feeds in your eReader’s web browser, in a format designed for your device.

Go to a G:RSS-Web address in your device’s browser (on the Kindle, you can find your browser in the Experimental section), where you’ll be walked through setting up your account. G:RSS-Web uses OAuth for accessing your Google account.  On the Kindle, the device that I’ve used with G:RSS-Web, you use keys to navigate through your feeds. Typically, each link on the page has a keyboard letter associated with it. Hit the key, and load that link.

G:RSS-Web won’t have you rushing to throw away your computer or your mobile phone, but it is definitely serviceable. It is also free.  Do you access Google Reader on your Kindle? If so, let us know how in the comments.
