How do you save webpages that you want to read, but can’t read right now? Not a website that you bookmark, but a particular article or idea. Well I email them to myself. Then I have an unmanageable number of “unread” emails in my inbox, which drives me crazy. This is the “system” I’ve used for years.
Well, I ran across a super cool website today that allows you to save web pages for reading later. It’s called Instapaper and it’s so easy to use. You sign up, which means a user name or email. That’s it! Tada, you’re registered. Then drag an icon to your bookmarks bar on your web browser.
When you come across an article that you want to read, but can’t read right now, you click on the icon in your toolbar and it saves it to your Instapaper account for you. No more emailing myself. No more saving an article to a bookmark and never remembering to go back to read it at a later date.
This site rocks! I’m so excited.
This also works with an iPhone or iPod touch and the Kindle. You’ll pay a download charge for the Kindle. And you can even add an RSS feed of your unread articles to your reader.
