is a really nice reader application for e-readers:

It can't fetch my pocket articles, but can be used with it. I don't want to spend much time switching tools right now, but I will consider this at a later time.

I just updated , my todo list for recurring tasks. It fixes some display problems that accumulated over the last years and the code is updated to 0.19.1.

Go to for the readme and code or to to launch it right away.
