There are many times that you are browsing online and do not have time to read an article or would like to save it for future reference.   The Safari Reading List will keep all those interesting articles organized in one place until you have time to come back and read them.  Safari Reading List is not only easy to use but also makes your articles available when you are offline!   Your Reading List will be available on your iOS device and your OSX laptop.

Reading List is a bit different than Bookmarks,  think of Bookmarks as a more permanent place to store your favorite websites and Reading List as an easy place to save those must- read articles that you really do not need long term.

Here is how to add an article to your reading list:

From the web page of the must-read article >  click on the share button on the top right corner of the Safari window > From the drop down menu, choose “Add to Reading List”.

Your reading list will appear.  You have option to view “All” or just the “Unread” or use the Search tool.  Now just click on an article and it will open in Safari.

After you are finished reading, you can delete the article by clicking on the “x” in the right-hand corner.
