Does anyone else read fanfiction on their ebook reader?

It took me a while to figure out the best formatting, but after a bit I decided that HTML was best. I just copy the info block and story text from Fanfiction.net entries, then erase the "" part in an HTML editor.
I don't read fan-fic particularly - especially when the original author has copyright issues with it.
Have you found archiveofourown.org? And if you like Buffy, Twisting the Hellmouth (tthfanfic.org) offers all their stories in epub and mobi formats. And there's also Amalthia's archive ( http://amalthia.mediawood.net/ebooks/ ).
Also, if you save your chapters in reverse order to Instapaper.com, you can them download an ebook in epub or mobi format. (has to be reverse order because Instapaper always puts newest entries at the top, blog-style).
Oh, and there's a little utility (Fanfiction Downloader: http://www.home-eisele.de/downloader_e.php ) that will automatically save stories from fanfiction.net (and a few other sites) in doc, HTML, PDF or mobi formats.
Can you tell this is my main vice?

Bless the cleverness of humanity. Everytime I think, "It'd be a good idea to make X," someone's already made it. The only thing I'd change is having options for having main Characters in the heading block, and including series name in the output file (maybe as "%c" for "Category?". Well, I can always change that myself, since this app will already make things much more convenient and quick.
>Calibre will also convert .txt files into Nook format. I save all the fic I like in .txt format for ease of conversion.
My only problem with that was losing bold and italics. Especially for some series where bold and italics have significant story importance (like Umineko, where it's used for indicating Red and Blue Truth).

The wikipedia article goes into more depth and is also rather interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_fiction
edit: Ouch. Red text on blue background. :(
"My only problem with that was losing bold and italics"
Yeah, that's an annoyance, but formatting wins over style for me. When I write stuff, I avoid bold and italics for formatting ease.
His aesthetics aren't the best, but that little utility has gotten a lot of use. I posted that link in some Livejournal fanfic communities, and people were *thrilled*. If only it could work on Livejournal itself.
For those, I do the Instapaper thing.
