Readability.com? Are You Using It?


Here is what Book Riot's Associate Editor and Community Manager, Rebecca, had to say about Readability:
"You know those super-interesting but too-long-to-read-in-the-middle-of-the-workday stories you come across when you’re reading online? What do you do with those? I used to bookmark them, but I never actually went back to read them. So then I tried leaving the tabs open in my web browser all day, telling myself that I’d read them over lunch or later in the evening. That didn’t work either. For a while, I just sort of gave up and didn’t read any longform web writing, but it made me too sad to continue. Luckily, a friend recently recommended Readability, and it has solved all my problems. Install the Readability bookmarklet on your browser’s tool bar, mark any article to “read later,” then pull it off in the Readability app on your phone or tablet. The app is free, and it converts the stories into a format available offline, so you can read them on a plane, or in line at the grocery store, or wherever. It’s terrific, and it’s become my preferred method of keeping up with the journalists and essayists whose work I love. Also, you can make your own collections of things and download them as ePub files for your eReader, and I think that’s pretty sweet."
Check it out and let us know your thoughts: Readability.  We're using it!

Happy Reading!
