ToRead: Bookmark to Email

ToRead is a simple but extremely useful email-based bookmarking service. Registered users can easily bookmark any page on the web and send it directly to the user’s email for later reading. The service is free. Registration and practical application is very easy to accomplish.

To register, just hand them your email address and verify it. You will be redirected to a page where you get a bookmarklet which you will of course use for bookmarking. You can select from two of the bookmarklets available. [toread] will simply bookmark a page then send it to your email and the [toread+] bookmarklet will bookmark a page and allow you to comment on that page. Whichever you choose is totally up to you. Just drag one or both of them to your browser’s bookmark toolbar.

What makes ToRead even more useful is that when you bookmark a page, it doesn’t only send you a link/URL of the bookmarked page, it also delivers the cached page (including images) that you bookmarked. This way, you don’t have to go to the link if you don’t want to. You can just read the whole stuff straight from your email. Online bookmarking shortcuts are also available so you can bookmark the emailed link to your favorite online bookmarking site if you wish to. ToRead is a very useful bookmarking tool. If you prefer to get your bookmarks emailed to you, then ToRead is the right tool for you.

    MereBlood: I am actually using it now. I temporarily took a break from using Firefox’s Read-it-Later bookmarking plugin and gave ToRead a shot to see how it goes.

    Look like a pretty cool service, though the “glass half empty” part of me wants to know what they do with all that data they collect about your habits 😀

    @Nukit: Transparency from companies offering services like this is always good for consumers like us. I also share your curiosity on what they do with the data they collect from us but I still think that it’s a cool service donchathink?
