I think I’m going to find Google Notebook quite handy. What I’ve tended to do when I’ve wanted to keep a website to read later I’ve either emailed the link to myself (where it usually gets deleted in one of my weekly home-inbox purges) or added them to my del.icio.us with a “ToRead” tag, 90% of which are currently unread.
Google Notebook allows you to “clip” only the relevant information from a page that you need and store it in a handy silo for use later on.
After signing up for the Notebook with your Google Account, if you’re using Firefox you are prompted to download the “Notebook Extension” – which I’d recommend as it saves you having to log into your account all the time. Once the extension is installed, an small icon sits at the bottom of your browser status bar. This has two functions. Firstly it enables you to login/view your Notebook and saved entries by left clicking, right clicking however asks you if you want to “Enable ‘Note This’ button”. The “Note This” button places a small [+] at the end of a highlighted sentance in your browser enabling you to add clippings to your Notebook instantly.
