If you clip website's article to Evernote. Do you make task in list manager's read/review list? then move article to action support folder?
or just making read/review folder in Evernote?
Isn't it confuse to make two read/review list from list manager and Evernote?

When clarifying an article I saved to Evernote, if it must be read, it will go to my support folder and I will create the next action into my next action list in the right context with a link to the note. On the contrary, if something must not be read, it goes into my read/review section in my Someday/Maybe list. When I want to read/review something I look it up in that list and read it.

You can also block some time once a week to read/review a few ( 1 o more) saved article. This can be done too by using a checklist.

Yes, I have been using Pocket for a couple of years now and really LOVE it. I use it for all online content that I would like to read / watch and it works as a charm.

I have looked at it several times over the years. It would not be useful to me without the premium version which seems pricey to me. I have also come to see it as an extra inbox which is often an extra, intermediate stop for information. But by all means try it.

I AM afraid of it becoming an extra inbox... I used to have a Read/Review folder in Outlook - but it basically became an article graveyard. I am having much greater joy using 2 separate Next Actions list for this material - Computer - To Read and Computer - To Watch.
What exactly is the difference between the premium version and the free one? I couldn't tell at a glance but it doe worry me...

The premium version gives you a full library, more functionalities and automated tagging. I was tempted to go for this but always stayed on the free version. Did not keep me from reading above 2 M words / year (30 books plus).
Understand your concern with the extra inbox and by all means stick to what works well for you. For me it is not really an extra inbox as to all articles that are in there I have already said "yes, I want to read them". Do I read all of them? Nope, for some I reconsider this decision and delete them at a later point.

That’s a great shout RE: not committing to ready everything. So far so good for me to have somewhere to dip and out of. And quick and easy to capture what I want to read later.

Hi,

Personally, I tried the "one fits all" strategy at some point and finally gave up. I now have a recurrent next actions in my GTD saying "Read something new today" with the link to the few places I have some stuff to read : my list manager, My reading list in Safari, and InstantPaper. I pick randomly.

Regards,
