In reply to Keeping an Unread List by Joost Plattel

Yes, your Pocket collection can make a valuable anti-library. One tip though: when saving something add to it why you are saving that something, what made it stand out for you. That is valuable when future you searches the collection for inspiration. I know you also use Obsidian, and that is where I store my unread / read later online material. I clip it to a folder (NewClippings) in my notes, and add the reason I think it interesting plus sometimes a link to some existing note I feel is related. That way I can make the clippings turn up when searching my notes (or exclude them). I also have an Alfred workflow to quickly check if I already clipped something, as some web articles cross my path again and again over time.

The read it later list is a place, not a list that needs to be emptied.
