Discussion on: Do you Read your Reading List?

What is the reading list for? My guess is that it's meant as a place to collect articles you want to read but don't have time for right now?

That's not how I use it. I know from experience that if I don't read something immediately, there's very little chance I'll read it later.

I use the reading list as a kind of bookmark list, to keep track of articles I might want to refer to again. I used to use Evernote's web clipper for that but it stopped working on Safari.

Actually a feature that could be nice is a reading history or a 'liked' history. Sometimes I only like a post. Then, days or weeks later, I want to go back to it and it's rather hard to find. @ben is that a possibility? Or does that already exist and I'm unaware of it?

For me the reading list is a mix of "I way to read this later" and "I want to bookmark it"
