Great article and idea to save all these items I've accumulated over the years and the process works great until I do the import into Evernote where I I keep getting this error using Python 3.3.1 for both the 32 and 64bit versions.
'Could not import notes, error: INVALID_DOC (Error in line 1, token "no root element") please report this error to Evernote.
Should I be using the 2.7.4 version of Python?
any advice would be most welcome.

Really helpful article – had been pondering over how to sort out my thousands of Reader bookmarks. However, when I run the first Python script I get the following error message:
File "export2HTMLFiles.py", line 4
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
If I try to run the second script to turn starred items directly into an Evernote notebook I get a similar message. Any idea what might be going wrong? (I'm new to Python – version 3.3 on a MacBook.)

I had the same issue with the DocType
I had to click the link, then choose RAW in the top right corner, then save the resulting webpage.
If you right click, save as on the screen with the list of files, it actually downloads HTML.

Is it possible to export tagged articles from google reader?

This works really well, thanks for pointing it out. For those who are having problems, the problem is not Python but the 'export' program file. You can't just right-click and save-as to save the Python file from the Github site for some reason (doing so just saves the webpage, which is why you are getting the error, since it is an html rather than Python file). I got the code by left-clicking on the desired file, then clicking on the Raw tab (which gives the source code on one page), and only then right-clicking and selecting save-as. As I say, it worked well for me. Hope this helps.
