Okay, this isn’t exactly a new idea, but it’s still worth sharing.
I got this from Lifehacker back in 2012, but I’ve been behind in my link sharing, so I’m just getting to it now.
The idea is simple. Reading on-line is rarely the best, most comfortable, most convenient way to keep up with all the things we want to read, especially all the “long form” articles that really get in-depth on topics we care about. That’s where Readlists comes into play.
This site lets you gather links and articles together into a “readlist”. What’s a Readlist? According to the Readlist website, it’s “a group of web pages—articles, recipes, course materials, anything—bundled into an e-book you can send to your Kindle, iPad, or iPhone. ” Don’t worry, though, if you use the Barnes and Noble Nook or some Android device, though, because you can just download the epub file and manually upload it to your ereader for your convenience. So, yeah, you can finally get all those blog posts from that one friend you’ve been meaning to read gathered together into one, convenient, easy-to-read ebook to peruse at your convenience. (You can also grab the latest news or anything else that strikes your fancy.)
The best part is, you can do this for free and even anonymously, if you’d like.
So, if you all will excuse me, I have some reading to do!
Have a great weekend!
