Instapaper - A Tool for Intential Delay

I use Instapaper to keep track for articles and other interesting things I find on the Web or in newsletters. I just click that link that says “read later” and then ignore it for the moment. The trouble is, I don’t always go back to read it later.

While my goal this year - 2018 - is to read 60+ books, I also have the goal to get the 5,800+ things I’ve sent to Instapaper deleted, organized, read, or otherwise disposed of.
