A suggestion for Hubpages-saving hubs so that I can read them later

    I would love to have an option to save hubs on some kind of reading list. Often I will be browsing hubs and find one that I want to read, but then something comes up and I have to walk away from the computer. By the time I come back, my computer might have fallen asleep, or my husband turned it off, or my son pressed some button, etc. If I had an option to quickly save the hub,  "favorite" it, or add it to a reading list, before walking away; that would be helpful.

      We had a bookmarking option, but I think it got removed because not many people used it.

      Can't you just bookmark on it on you web browser like any other page? You can create a separate bookmarks folder for Hubs you want to read and stick them in there.

      There are many third party options to archive and even safe offline web content.
      All of these tools have plugins that allow you to save content from your browser.
      Evernote
      Instapaper

      Send to Kindle
      for Firefox

      and Chrome

      You also have another simpler option of printing the content to a PDF.
      I have used all of these options and currently use the Kindle plugin and Evernote daily.

      I just use my web browser bookmarks. I imported my Firefox bookmarks to Chrome and am enjoying the ease of Chrome bookmarks as well. Just click the star in the nav bar.

      I agree!  I have bookmarked in my browser, but it becomes overloaded.

    Hi IT,  You CAN 'favourite' it. I do when I want to save a hub page.

    You can "follow" it, but the drawback to that is that you get a notification every time someone comments on it. I usually use the bookmark button on my browser. But I agree, it would be easier if they had a bookmark feature on this site.

      Another option would be to copy it and paste it into a word processing program.  You could then build a library from those pages.

    Yep! Thanks for the tips, everyone. I just thought it would be cool to have the option on hubpages. I usually bookmark them already.
