Keep articles in a cache somewhere.....

    I'd love to be able to grab a hub and stash it somewhere for later. I don't always have time to read entire articles, and some that I do read, I'd like to keep for future reference.

    It'd be nice to be able to keep articles in a hub-bucket or something similar, to read later.

      MissJamieD - you can do that on most browsers - setup a Hubpages folder in your favorites and then simply add any interesting hubs to that.

        Aaaaah, thank you so much:) I am going to start doing that, but it would be nice to have the feather here:)

      You might want to check out Instapaper, Pocket (Formerly Read It Later), or Evernote.
      Each of these products allows you to set content from your browser to be read later even offline.

          You are very welcome.  I personally use Evernote, but have used Instapaper and Pocket as well and all are nice tools.  Evernote offers both paid and free accounts.

          I use Pocket and have been for a couple of years. The only problem is finding time to go back and read the posts I set there. I've been trying to read things in the moment - when I still remember what interested me and where I wanted to share the link.

      Sometimes, for want of a better way to do it, I will email an article to myself.  I have several email accounts, so it's easy to put it in a sort of 'homework' file, or in the account that best relates to the topic (such as putting good articles about writing in my 'writing' account, etc.).

    Miss Jamie, there used to be a bookmark feature on HP but they discontinued it a while back. I personally was disappointed to see it go. One option is also to follow it, and that way it usually keeps coming back in your feed, if other people comment. There also a number of bookmarking sites out there that you can use.

      Thank you. Yes, I thought I remembered a bookmark system here at one point several years ago but I wasn't sure. I was gone for awhile. I appreciate the advice:)
