This set of scripts enables you to shorten URLs using Readability service,
rdd.me. It not only shortens the URL but also provides reading interface that
presents the page in an uncluttered way (no bars, no columns, no nothing -

rdd.me. But It not only shortens the URL, though, it also provides reading
interface that presents the page in an uncluttered way (no bars, no columns, no
nothing - content only).
The service also allows you to download ePub version of the cleaned page. The
script won't download the file for you, though. You should pass the URL to the
external program (e.g. wget) who would do that for you.

You should probably pipe the result into wget or something so the file is
downloaded right away. Note that as of this writing (August 2013) ePub
filenames are rather cryptic (it starts with rdb and contains numerical ID of
some kind), so you should probably change the output filename, too.
filenames are rather cryptic (they start with rdb and contain numerical ID of
some kind), so you should probably change the output filename, too. Note also
the fact that the service needs some time to prepare the ePub, so you should
retry downloading the file until you're sure it returned ePub document and not
HTML one. While doing so, please show some love to the service - use delays.
