Use Delicious as a Reading List the Easy Way

How often do you find a great article without the time to read it, so you bookmark it and completely forget about it? This happened to me constantly until I found the Readeroo extension for Firefox, which lets me queue pages for easy retrieval later.

Once you install the extension you’ll notice a new button with a plus sign on it. This button will let you silently add the current page to del.icio.us with a tag of “toread” (customizable)

The first time you click the button you’ll be prompted to login to del.icio.us.

It takes a few minutes sometimes for the tooltip on the Readeroo button to appear, but normally it will tell you how many items are left to be read.

Click on the button and you’ll get the next item in the queue… it’s just as simple as that.

Now that I have some time, maybe I’ll check out MysticGeek’s article about Saving to PDF from Office 2007.

    All you need to do is tag it “looklater” (or anything else) and set up a live RSS feed on that tag. No need for more extensions.

    Or you could install the del.icio.us extension, use a tag to mark your reading list (like “to_read”) and add that tag to your favorites so it appears in your del.ico.us menu or toolbar
