Yes, I use one of these. I have an app on my Android phone called Newsrob that is linked to my Google Reader account. So, I load the RSS urls of blogs and newspapers I follow into that site. I think most sites have an easy "Add to Google Reader" button under the RSS link. Or, you can past the RSS feed thingy into your Google Reader account.
Anyway, my phone app downloads everything from Google Reader and then I can lie in bed for a few minutes after the alarm goes off and read the news.
